Our Leadership Academy in Nairobi

Developing a new generation of sovereign leaders where it’s needed most – a breakthrough experience for Kenyan talents and executives from abroad. That is our joint goal with NPO Aiducation – we are so grateful for this strong partnership.

DierkeHouben Leadership Advisors runs the Academy as a philantropic project. All executives‘ fees are exclusively for the benefit of NPO Aiducation Kenya.

Voices of participants

40 highly talented future Kenyan leaders, all of them scholarship alumni of NPO Aiducation, our team of 8 executives and ourselves acting as coaches – our 5-day “Purpose-driven Leadership Academy” was designed to help people start living up to their full potential. Starting with defining the individual purpose, understanding behavioural styles and learning emotional intelligence for better self-management we enabled the talents and the executives to step up as sovereign leaders.

Grow stronger as a sovereign leader while serving a higher cause: Grow yourself by helping others to grow.

Voices of  “Leaders as Coaches”

In June 2022, we ran the second cohort of our Leadership Academy in Nairobi. This time we had a strong team of 5 executives from Switzerland/ Germany and 3 executives from Kenya with us, acting as coaches throughout the acdemy. Our thanks go to Rosebella Abok, Anna-Naomi Bandi-Lang, Anzazi Kiti, Ronny Landolt, Philip Odete, Jeannette von Ratibor, Simone Schimmion and Matthias Schümann. They acted as coaches during the academy and did a great job in listening, encouraging, experimenting and guiding! “Growing yourself by helping others grow” – they really embarked on this personal growth journey for a higher cause.

These 8 leaders joined us for 5 days to support 40 Kenyan leadership talents – students and young entrepreneurs – to consistently master their own development journey. It was great to have them as coaches in our 2022 Leadership Academy!

We are looking forward to our next DierkeHouben Leadership Academy: June 19-23, 2023.

If you are interested in joining us as a coach in our next Academy in Kenya, you will be very welcome. Just reach out to us! It is such an enriching lifetime experience.

And it is a win-win-win for everyone: for you by developing yourself as a sovereign leader, for Kenyan future leaders by stepping into purpose and self-awareness – and for our philanthropic initiative, supporting NPO Aiducation and the AiduAlumni in Kenya.
