Contact person Koen Marichal

Reinventing leadership for better organizations is a challenge and often a lonely one. We create a platform to share and support this effort. The platform allows you to exchange ideas and questions with peers with similar challenges and get energy in exclusive workshops so that you, in turn, can inspire your leaders.

Program on an annual basis

  • 4 Labs: substansive, ‘high touch’, for leadership’professionals’ in organizations
  • 2 Leader dialogues: exclusive meetings between top-tier leaders concerning actual leadership issues
  • 1 Leader Gathering for top-tier leaders, leader professionals and their ‘backing’

For organizations that want/need:

  • To explore shared and authentic leadership
  • To advance ways of effective collaboration
  • Empowerment at all levels in the organization
