First, you’ll meet Dorine, Leading Organizations’ program lead, one-on-one. During the meeting, we will discuss your learning and development goals with you and go over the development goals and the program details. The meeting takes place online.


Module 1

 Leading Organizations
(With training group)

During this kick-off, you will get to know the trainers and other participants. With the group, we’ll be staying at a special location for two days. We will go over the specifics of the program with you. The sessions center around the topics of true leadership and business impact. After all, growth starts with reflection. How do you see yourself, your organization and its environment? You examine your own identity and share important life events. This has an immediate effect on a safe learning environment. Are you able to motivate others and help them grow? You will gain experiences and ideas about how you can drastically increase your impact as a leader.

Living Leadership Circle 1

(With working environment)

You choose five coworkers and employees from your organization for the first Living Leadership Circle. This is a meeting where you and the other five people discuss the organization and your leadership together. The aim is to gather input on your learning and development ambitions, both for yourself and the organization. One of the trainers will supervise this meeting, which will take place at The House of Brout.


Module 2

 Leading Others
(With training group)

In two days, we will guide you through several principles of the creating organization. You can recognize a creating organization by the vibrant energy in the corridors and the apparent ease with which results are achieved. How do you ensure that your employees can link their purpose to the higher goal of the organization? It begins with releasing obstructive beliefs and a change of your mindset. Next, you learn to create commitment by leveraging potential and are introduced to dialogue as a decision-making model.


Peer consultation 1

The group will be divided into two or three peer groups. You and the other participants will study practical case studies during the peer review. Together, you explore your possibilities, look for solutions, and solidify your new insights. The trainer supervises the peer review session using the most common peer review techniques.


Module 3

 Leading Self
(With training group)

Culture is the organization’s DNA; it determines how things are done within the organization. It is the intangible link between the people. Unconscious rules support the actions and existence of the organization. As a leader, you are an essential figurehead. You lead by example. In this two-day module, we zoom in on the organizational culture phenomenon. You will research the undercurrent and dynamics in your organization according to the principles of systemic work (organizational constellations).


Peer consultation 2

Once again, the peer review group will get together. Each introduces their professional case study. Together, you explore your possibilities, look for solutions, and solidify your new insights.
