Our „Lead Your Self“ Academy in Nairobi

Developing a new generation of sovereign leaders where it’s needed most – a breakthrough experience for Kenyan talents and managers from abroad.

Voices of participants

35 highly talented future Kenyan leaders, all of them scholarship alumni of NPO Aiducation, our team of 7 executives and ourselves acting as coaches – our 5-day “Lead Your Self 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 managers 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 Executive Coaches

We started 2020 with a train-the-trainer workshop to get our team of 7 coaches up and running. A big thank you to Liz Wamuchiru, Mburu Tuni, George Jilani, Robert Mwaura, Joseph Kongoro, Florian Kapitza and Kamau Irungu – these are all leaders who acted as coaches here: they did a great job in listening, encouraging, experimenting and guiding!

These 7 leaders joined us for 5 days to support 35 Kenyan leadership talents – students and young entrepreneurs – to consistently master their own development journey. It was great to have them as coaches for our 2020 Leadership Academy!

We are looking forward to our next DierkeHouben Leadership Academy in 2022.

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.
