Program Design

The program consists of four modules where we highlight four dimensions of leadership from setting direction and vision to leading towards results, getting people on board and daring to lead change. Participants bring their own challenges and dilemmas into the program to train practical leadership skills such as coaching and feedback.

    Identify your personal values, motivations and strengths. Work with value-driven leadership towards a specific vision.
  • Module 2: Know Your Numbers
    Learn to lead towards results and profitability with sustainable business models and financial understanding.
  • Module 3: Leading Through People
    Improve your skills in feedback, coaching, diversity and inclusion to lead effective teams.
  • Module 4. Making It Happen
    Develop your leadership skills in change management, long-term learning and courage in decision-making.
  • Optional add-on: Mentor
    You can choose to be supported by your own external mentor for 10 months to deepen your personal development and be invited to additional networking events throughout the year.
