Featured formats

As we develop learning journeys, we pay special attention to the interplay between relevant content and creative formats. What our participants learn and how they learn are inseparable questions. Creative formats, if implemented intelligently, can foster engagement, inspire self-discovery, and motivate learners to apply their learnings in their daily practices.

Learn more about the featured formats in the ESMT publication "The future of executive education. Learning leadership in a digital age" provided below.


Individualized Learning

Our team believes creating personalized learning journeys is the best way to maximize our clients' investment, tailoring both the content as well as the teaching format to fit each individual's career path, learning style, and working context in order to provide the best possible learning experience.

Experiential Learning

As part of our experiential learning approach, we design learning laboratories where participants can experiment with leadership styles and practices. In a safe learning environment, they get to experience failure as well as success, so they can be prepared when they lead real teams on real projects and they can use the experience gained from that to be successful. As a bonus, the sessions are a lot of fun as well.

Blended Learning

Blended learning combines the strengths of asynchronous virtual content, live online interactions, and face-to-face training in order to create new and inspiring learning experiences. With online learning, busy executives gain scheduling flexibility, allowing for better time management. Face-to-face modules stimulate discussion and networking with peers. Done right, blended learning is the best of both worlds.
