Next Academy: June 06 – 10, 2022

As a leader in disruptive times

you are aware that any routine thinking – even if rooted in past success – is a barrier to access your full potential. For you, continuous self-renewal is imperative.

We strongly believe that in these times of enormous business opportunities and challenges great leaders need a strong inner compass to adapt quickly. These times call for a new quality of leaders: The sovereign leader – leaders who embody a strong professional will and a personal humbleness, willing to transform themselves in order to transform their teams and their organisations.

Sovereign leaders are true game changers at the top through their unique blend of 3 Cs: Connectedness, Consciousness and Contribution. They connect to their individual purpose to build strength from within. They are conscious about themselves, their own strengths and limiting patterns, and the complex dynamics in the world around them. And they know how to unfold their and others’ full contribution potential.

EXPLORE is your opportunity to start transforming yourself. It is unique, selective, confidential and by application only. We help you answering the question: “How can I grow into a sovereign leader?”
