Tree Trunk Leadership Program (open enrolment, German-language)

Our 4-day program for mid-level managers and/or new leaders.
The framework for this program is our Tree Trunk Leadership Model, which reinforces the use of our personal energy as the foundation for successful, authentic leadership.

Participants experience this throughout the training. Using a mix of participative and proven learning methods, participants widen their perspectives around what it means to lead, and are encouraged to try out different approaches in the safe environment we create.

We also use real-life cases from the participants so that they can apply their learning to their specific challenges. Instead of focussing on theoretical material, we find that relating the content to participants’ own, real, leadership challenges helps consolidate new skills and knowledge. The program includes individual coaching sessions during and after the training modules, which help ensure that what is learned, is applied.
