Why this workshop is right for you


Interactive & applied
We won't use a PowerPoint presentation once. Instead, we will bring theory to life with the help of verbal examples, drawings and a lot (!) of sticky  notes. In the world of digital streamlining, the magic still happens when a top-level participant verbally recounts his struggles with getting his team on board with a project.


This workshop is the distillate of years working as and with leaders from the most sucessful companies in the world. When you walk away from this workshop, you'll own the tools to begin transforming your organisational culture and sparking your staff's connected thinking.


Based on proven models
Advice can only do so much if it's merely induced from theory.  In this workshop, you'll  practice models for analysis and application that have been tried & tested that you can use to detect bottlenecks and enable change on your company's journey to agility.


What's happening in the workshop

Why everyone talks about Agility

What your Leadership Maturity tells you
A key step towards agility is self-awareness. Discover the mindset and behaviors of expert, achiever and catalyst leaders and how those impact organizational effectiveness. We will use the leadership maturity model to inspect at which stage you can increase creativity and agility.

      This wasn’t training, it was an experience. We were never taught at, we were engaged in a learning experience in which we all participated and contributed. I have never been so engaged for two and a half days.
