About the course

This retreat targets teams of senior managers who wish to take time to reflect upon their leadership challenges and receive coaching and guidance on their specific challenges. The focus of the course will be to build a strong, coordinated and committed leadership team. We will explore your different perspectives and work on standing stronger, when it comes to the direction of the organisation. The retreat will introduce you to a bit of theory on leadership and leadership teams for inspiration.

However, most importantly we will set the frame and facilitate the dialogue, to make sure that you hear each other’s perspectives. In all leadership teams there are some similarities in how you look at things, but also some differences – this is only natural – and differences are what help organisations move forward.

You probably all know situations where you are discussing things and you forget to listen to what the other is really saying, because you are so busy thinking of your own next arguments. “You cannot listen with your mouth full of words”. For that reason, we will create a space for dialogue and reflection where exploring the differences will create clarity, understanding and new insights. We will work appreciatively with these differences, hopefully nurturing curiosity to explore the good reasons behind your points of view. There will be many agendas and we will talk about whatever you think is the most important for you – and change the programme flexibly accordingly.

Topics covered will depend on the actual groups, but ideas could be: leadership pipeline (leadership competences needed at different leadership levels and flows of communication and decision making); psychological safety, fearless dialogue and more meaningful and constructive meetings; managing strategic change processes; leading leaders etc.
