Unconventional. Experiential. Applicable.

Standardized approaches to leadership are no longer fit for purpose in today’s challenging business environment. This creative program uses an action-and-review framework to expand learning beyond lectures and case studies. Participants will be challenged to be bold – and to perform, communicate, lead, and create an innovative set of experiential encounters.

Together with peer feedback, these elements will accelerate your personal and professional growth and help break out of a conventional leadership routine.

"I was surprised how much fun a training can be without losing effectiveness. Amazing how quickly my peers and I built trust and were able to give each other feedback. No pure focus on leadership but also on team dynamics and personality development."

Philipp Heinz, Director, Gauly Advisors

Effective leaders search for the better question, accept inexperience, stay in motion, craft good stories. People who act this way help others make sense of what they are facing; sense-making is about staying in touch with context.
