About the Advanced Leadership Program.

You have a higher education and you’re an expert in your field. Now, you’re ready to take the next step in a leadership or management position. Maybe you want to start a new program in your own department, or you have to start an important change program, or you simply aspire to a managerial position. This training will show you how to approach the challenges ahead. With a combination of both strategic and practical tools, this training will show you how to turn your next programs into successes.

Solution-rich program built around four themes  

This masterclass is a specialized program designed to help you learn new leadership techniques and refine old skills to run your team, including assertive communication, motivation methods, and coaching. The training is built around these 4 themes: Purpose, People, Process & Politics

This masterclass combines theory with practical examples to give you the tools to make a difference from day 1. With a focus on change management, organizational culture, structure, and navigating your way through an organization's political field, you’ll gain insights into turning challenges into concrete actions. For additional support, a user day and a coaching package can be added to this training.

Advanced Leadership Program

This program will guide you through all the steps for organizational change, by showing you the way. It's no blueprint for success; you’ll need to learn and experience yourself what works in your situation. We’ll help you start, and make hands-on assignments directed at your case, so you end up with a strong foundation to excel.
