Leader-ship on the island of Elba Leading successfully in all wind speeds

09.09.2017 - 16.09.2017, Elba

In this seminar you are the skipper and will directly experience the effect of your leadership – up close. For you as a leader this means undergoing a sustainable learning experience – more direct than any coaching session you’ve ever had – and often including a turning point.

The trip takes six days – to the Tuscan archipelago and your individual leadership strength. You will notice what to watch out for in your personal leadership style and what it means to be part of a complex system.

You will free yourself of having to monitor and know everything. “Line-of-sight sailing“ means being constantly confronted with new challenges: Making decisions, communicating and reflecting. This leader ship will become the guiding principle for your leadership. Important prerequisites are your desire for open feedback as well as the willingness to be confronted with conscious and unconscious behaviour patterns.
