Leadership Development

We love to see leaders leave their comfort zone, build their toolbox, and grow! We would be honored to collaborate with you to design and deliver customized, sustainable leadership training and coaching for your leaders or high potentials. Upon request, we can create coaching plans and international programs in German and English.

One of our biggest USP is our hybrid approach to learning. Yes, time is money, and we want to respect both! We deliver hybrid approaches by offering an online platform with access to videos and other materials which serve as preparation for each training module. This saves us time in the “classroom” (on-site or virtual), and participants come better prepared for the training. They have had to think about and reflect on the content, allowing us to start practicing and engaging with it from the get-go.

Following in-depth consultations, we develop the right program for you and your employees


Leadership training can include, for example, skill bites (short sessions), which are integrated into a larger workshop or offered online for a few hours on a customized basis.

Full leadership development programs usually last between 6 – 12 months. We work with you to determine what works best based on needs, goals, and resources.

Target Groups:

Our leadership development programs are generally split into three target groups, each dependent on where participants are on their leadership journey and where they want to go. After a needs analysis, we’ll help you put together the perfect program that best suits your organization’s needs.
