The development of oneself and one's leadership go hand in hand
In an atmosphere of tranquility and clarity, how can you fulfill your leadership role?
How do you inspire your team members to collaborate with each other?
What are the prerequisites for pleasant and effective teamwork?
Shared responsibility sounds appealing, but how do you create it?
As a leader, how do you provide space for others while maintaining the lead?
These questions (and many others) are contemplated during the individual leadership program 'The Essence of Leadership.' This inspiring and concise program, consisting of 5 sessions, supports you in (further) developing your leadership skills and contributing to optimal collaboration within your team or department.
This program combines both course content and coaching, guiding you to the core of leadership. The focal point is the combination of Personal Leadership and Team Leadership.
Five personal, enlightening, profound, and incredibly enjoyable 3-hour conversations with Alies. The program has provided me with invaluable insights into myself, my work and personal relationships, and leadership. Insights that I hope to apply in a future leadership role!
