• Start Date: September 2023


In the Leadership kitchen we will follow a recipe, using tasty and spicy ingredients and through that learn and grow!

An exclusive programme for senior leaders (15 years of experience or more) Exploring and learning together. A fresh combination between intervision, Mastermind and exploring new ideas and insights with the result of deep personal learning. Linking knowledge with somatic learning (=anchoring the learning in the whole being) so you can experience the effect of the new knowledge in action and being.

The ultimate goal of the programme is to make sure all participants can show up in their best possible way. Tangible growth and change. Concretely this means that all insights from the program will be translated by the participants into their daily context, into their daily being. Different exercises and tools will be used for this, as learning and especially changing behavior, occurs in different ways. The set up of the Leadership kitchen is done in such a way that you will digest the topic/ dimension in different ways (live face to face exchange and learning in group, individual reflection, e-mail prompts, exchange on relevance in daily context with a peer, journaling, and support via an online platform) which will enhance the change capacity of the participants. And while we are doing this we will have fun, look for new and creative ways and do this in a safe learning environment as research shows that these are factors that makes learning AND changing easier.
