Enabling personal growth – for us, this is more than working with executives and in companies. It is important to us to develop a new generation of leaders who break free from old myths of leadership – and take the lead with confidence and the utmost inner sovereignty.
We have been teaching leadership – transformational leadership and purpose-driven leadership – for years now at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management. We strive to enable young leaders look reflectively at themselves and others.
But that isn’t enough for us. We ask ourselves time and time again: how and where can we contribute our strengths? What special thing can we contribute so that people can leverage their real potential?
That’s how our five-day Leadership Academy for students and young entrepreneurs in Nairobi was “born” – in cooperation with the Swiss NPO Aiducation International. The goal: to help these young talents transform their burdensome past into an inner source of strength that guides them. In this way, we strengthen and encourage them to take the lead in their society and community.
