The program is offered in two cohorts with different starting options. Both options are complemented by two interactive evening formats with inspirational guest speakers and facilitators alongside the learning journey.

You will start your leadership journey with 3,5 days of concrete mapping and goals setting to:

  • Expand your toolbox to craft solutions to contemporary problems
  • Activate inner resources to overcome stress and build resilience
  • Develop strategies to navigate paradoxes and contradictions, while staying true to your purpose (peer coaching)

At this third empowering part of your journey you will finally:

  • Develop and apply strategies to solve the challenge you identified
  • Build support in your organization so your innovation can take root
  • Align your personal and organizational values to broaden your impact
  • Take measures so you and your organization can keep thriving (peer coaching)
