We have been designing and delivering leadership development seminars over 20 years.

We specialize in pluralistic settings, i.e. where there is more than one dominant logic.
Or put simply, when it gets messy.

STRATEGY FORMATION

Strategy defines the longterm orientation and activities of an organization.

Oftentimes people consider strategy a symbolic, ineffective organizational exercise. Rather than being given directions, people in organizations seek a sense of direction, purpose and identity. Who are we as an organization? Where are we going as an organization mid- to longterm?
Strategy well-crafted takes these issues seriously.

ORGANISATIONAL CHANGE

Pursuing a new strategic direction requires organizations to change.


In fact, organizations do not change – people do! Change involves for most people to step outside their comfort zone and into the unknown. While management is most effective in the known, organizational change calls for leadership – not only from those in charge, but all organizational members.

 

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Orchestrating change is the pre-eminent task of leadership.


Leadership is not an inherent quality but an authority granted by others. Leaders might think they are powerful but they are more dependent on the commitment, knowledge and support than they would like to admit. The higher you make your way up in the ranks, the more lonely and dependent you get. Leadership development then is less about the newest framework or tool but about orchestrating psychologically safe settings for critical reflection.
