Presidency of the institute [1]   


Jean-Pierre Bal is the président-directeur (executive president) of INSIL France. His executive role remains subordinate to his educational one, in his own words: "any CEO should be very actively involved in the training of emerging leaders at all levels in the organisation; a pivotal role, a first and foremost one". 


Leadership educator and CEO coach


He is also Institute Professor of Leadership, and the most senior faculty member at the THIERRY Graduate School of Leadership which he founded in Belgium in the year 2000. In light of his retirement by 2023-2025, he is gradually spinning down  his educational activities in the leadership domain, with the exception of the environmental leadership ('leadership and nature') specialty courses, and of the CEO leadership coaching and mentorship programmes. 


He remains active in a few other fields, such as the arts, the crafts, the fashion world, and entrepreneurship. In 2018 he ventured into a type of neo-classical craftsmanship education, by initiating the start-up of his Ecole des Malletiers Nicolas Gilbert in Belgium, and of the Ecole des Malletiers Jean Paré sister-school in France as of 2020-2021.
