The Leadership Lectures: Rizal Bragagnini

The Leadership Lectures feature world-class, accomplished and influential leaders with expertise ranging from business and philanthropy to public service and academic research. Through the Lectures we hope to allow our community to have access to the expertise, advice and best practices of some the world’s foremost leadership minds and so the lectures are free and open to the public.


  • About the lecture

    The 5Es in Leadership

    Explain, through personal experiences, how effective leaders balance the 5Es:

    • Envision: imagine the “possible” future – to change the rules of the game
    • Engage: gain the enrollment and commitment of the team
    • Energize: inspire people to deliver the future
    • Enable: build people’s capabilities to achieve better results
    • Execute: make things happen through Strategy, People and Operations.

    Participants leave inspired with simple, but potent, leadership concepts which can enable “anyone” to be a leader (when required).
