  • What participants say about our online courses

    A most valuable time for self-reflection and learning about my leadership style and to have an insight into how transformative could self-leadership be in a team of co-workers with regard to ownership, responsibilties, motivations and even emotional connectedness.

    (EVERYONE LEADS 2020 participant)

  • What participants say about our online courses

    The replication module has been a true "Eureka effect" that not only led to a complete rethinking of our development strategy but also allowed us to align our team on our major objectives for the next few years. Thank you all for your help in this troubled time 

    (REPLICATION & TRANSFER 2020 participant)

  • What participants say about our workshops

     

    The facilitators managed to create a safe space in order for everyone to share and be open. That was very impressive! Inspiring, connecting. I was pleasantly surprised with format and content. It was very engaging

    (WELLBEING 2020 participant)

     

     

  • What participants say about our online courses

    A brilliant job I thought, regardless of where you were in your learning cycle, the program felt like it gave a somewhat more exhaustive list of the most important issues. The run-through of the financial modelling and taking part of Mark's intuitions, thoughts and tacit knowledge was great.​

    (SOCIAL FINANCE 2020 participant)

  • What participants say about our online courses

    More confidence in my posture to speak, measure and fund our system change journey. It has changed my mind completely on how to boost change inside my organization
