OUR APPROACH

We focus on cultivating proactive abilities in you, that can be applied to any situation or challenge. In Future Leaders we do not believe that leadership can be taught with theory. We believe in mastery thru practice and personal strategies. Therefore, we train and empower all participants to become their own teacher. In Future Leaders, learning is not fancy words or easy solutions that you write down in your textbook, it is behavioural change. 
Our program focus on developing three abilities:

 
 
 

I.SELF-LEADERSHIP

Building your own foundation.

Our focus is to help you craft your own coping strategies, for both your personal and professional life. We work to increase self-awareness and the ability to influence your thoughts and behaviour.

II. LEADERSHIP

You in relations to others. 

The ability to foster and build healthy relationships and collaborations in your community and organisational life; you in relation to others, how you help them, and how you allow yourself to be helped.
By understanding how values, power and emotional labour interchange you will be better off managing deep relations to your friends, family and coworkers.

III. IMPACT

Understanding the world and how to create impact. 

Fostering a creative and critical mindset will enable you to gain insight, single out contradictions, connect dots and see new ways of transferring technology- and use knowledge between disciplines.
