Developing Future-Proof Leadership Capabilities
The pharmaceutical and life sciences sector has encountered multitudes of external and internal pressures over the last years. Sudden increases in demand, pressure to innovate, and supply chain issues are just a few of the challenges that the industry has faced.
Long- and medium-term prospects for the pharmaceutical sector are very turbulent and access to markets is becoming a key obstacle not just for long-term success, but for survival as well.
In this context, many companies are working on new approaches to implement and develop new models, but few have made progress towards a real solution.
At Roche, the same challenges apply. For this programme, the company wanted to develop professionals at its Global Infrastructure & Solutions (GIS) department to overcome some of the challenges the broader sector has faced. The goal was for GIS to improve performance and invent future ways of working.
Atenea Programme: Embrancing a New Mindset
Considering the challenges faced by the sector, Roche partnered with Headspring to co-create a completely customised executive learning programme aimed at professionals within the Global Infrastructure & Solutions team. The resulting programme, called Atenea, had the following objectives.
Enabling New Ways of Working
Developing Leadership Skills
Adopting an Innovative Mindset
Blended Learning Methodologies
The Atenea Programme adopted a wide variety of learning methodologies.
As well as providing blended and hybrid learning, the programme focused on experiential learning by engaging participants on practical tasks and challenges specific to Roche.
Both content and methodologies were designed to meet specific learning objectives defined by Roche. The flexibility in methodologies contributed to a more effective hands-on learning experience, with real business impact.
Peer-to-Peer Coaching & Mentorship
Transformational Business Project
Enhanced Leadership & Interpersonal Competencies
Participants of this programme walked away with new perspectives and learnings that they can easily apply to their line of work. This helped participants understanding obstacles from a new perspective, challenge the status quo and find new ways to innovate and create value.

Stronger interpersonal relationships
The deep collaboration and ongoing dialogue between Headspring and Roche’s leaders has been critical to the creation and success of the Learning Experience. Raquel Velazquez, Talent Innovation & Leadership Partner. Roche Farma SA
