Transitioning towards a new institutional shape, name, and range of programmes

The talent development of leaders towards mastery in the art of leading, forms the main path and primary goal of the THIERRY learning approach. Fostering its genuinely universal roots since its creation in 2000, the graduate school continues to fulfill its worldwide and future-oriented specialty role in leadership education and leader-development.




Pursuing a very gradual transformation since 2020, our graduate school is due to adopt a new shape and name, as well as implement an enhanced educational and programmatic approach that aligns with major planetary changes of the coming decades. The tenets of that organisational evolution will be shared in due course. 




Meanwhile, in accordance with the school's "Plan 2020-2025", the DR Leadership unit is at this moment the school's flagship. Led by Jean-Pierre Bal, founder of the school, DR is active since more than two decades in the design and delivery of made to measure top-level leadership development. The DR are offered only at CEO level, for emerging or in-office leaders of various types of organisations, including corporations, nations, governments, and leading families. Reportedly among the few best in the world, yet known to be the most trying ones, the DR Leadership bespoke programmes and coaching are tailored one at a time, with utmost confidentiality assured. 




Offered since 2002, and leading to a post-graduate diploma, or a masters or PhD degree in leadership, the programmes  continue to be supervised by the International Higher Institute for Leadership (INSIL), the THIERRY-affiliate in France. Those existing curricular programmes are being phased out completely (by 2024).




Recherche Leudance Research (RLR), the THIERRY think-tank, continues to be active in practice-oriented research in leadership. Initiated in the early 1990s by the school's founder, the research is anchored in the primal and unbiased meaning and scope of the terms leader, leading (to lead), and leadership, while encompassing practice-oriented and multidisciplinary realms. 



In light of the global climate change challenges, the i2LN -- Icare Institute for Leadership and Nature -- pursued a specialist mission from 2014 to 2022, embodying the THIERRY programmes in Environmental Leadership launched more than 20 years ago. The i2LN, now being a component of the 2020-2025 phase, will be reintroduced, as of 2026.




The school supports the initiatives taken by INSIL in other education fields, including the recently founded Jean PARÉ college offering artisanship art and craft programmes in the malletier domain. PARÉ was initiated by Jean-Pierre Bal, founder of THIERRY, who ventured a few years ago into an entirely different domain. > more at Ecole Jean PARÉ.
