Professor Dr. Jean-Philippe Challandes teaches at the Bachelor’s, Master’s and MBA level at Business School Lausanne (BSL). A former professional Ice Hockey goaltender, Prof. Challandes is an experienced professor & facilitator. He has taught for the last 20 years to a vast variety of audiences – from children to adults – in a diversity of cultural and institutional contexts, including doctoral seminars. Originally a specialist of the Nation and State building process, he holds a PhD in Political History from the University of Brasilia. His 6 years of high-level international research led him to an international post-doctoral project that was completed at prestigious University Paris1-Sorbonne.
An expert of what is commonly described as “Modernity” – and therefore of the transition into our post-Industrial Revolution world – he increasingly became fascinated by Human Development both at collective and individual scales. Also operating as an independent consultant, he developed an approach strongly focused on values. Prof. Challandes brings creative ways of “connecting the dots” between personal development, leadership improvement and sustainable business.
