Leadership and executive development

In 2020, we continued to focus on our commitment to leaders through our Leadership Development curriculum. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, we further emphasized the focus on capabilities required to lead in a remote environment and converted our offers to virtual classrooms and online content. In addition, we provided tailored offerings, such as internal coaching for line managers, to help navigate through the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic. We launched anti-bias and inclusion leadership training for our senior leaders, including the members of our Board of Directors and Executive Board (see page 67). All our leadership programs are rooted in our values and leadership code, ensuring alignment to our culture.

Continuing to invest in our internal talent, we delivered our Senior Talent Program (STP) for Managing Directors and completed our first cycle of the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) for Directors, providing our high potential Credit Suisse leaders with key management skills, opportunities for self-reflection and exposure to members of the Executive Board.
