HOW WE WORK
State-of-the-art leadership development
Our disruptive business environment over the last decade has changed what it means to have good leadership requirements. Surprisingly, many leadership development programs have not yet caught up with new ways of preparing leaders for future challenges.
Instead, they have become increasingly ineffective and slow. Driven by management models and a lot of talking, programs are generally overly intellectual. An abundance of one-off workshops is fragmenting opportunities for real leadership building. Suppliers are scaling up group sizes, leading to uniformity and superficiality.
Our new era requires a new approach. An approach that touches leaders’ souls and helps them to embody that what makes leaders great. An approach that empowers them through experiencing and doing, and that is based on scientific insights. An approach that customizes personal development and that brings humans back into the heart of organizations.
With art and culture, renowned artists and prestigious cultural institutions
Art inspires and affects everyone, even if you do not know much about it or practice it. Be it music, photography, dance or film, art touches your subconscious, your feelings, and your drives. It helps you explore the unknown, where your untapped potential is. Art activates creativity and brings people together.
Great artists have critically important lessons to teach the world of business. They always see new possibilities. They embrace the unknown with one goal in mind: to achieve the best. They explore, fall and rise, and they learn from previous creations and experimentation. Armed with their solid professional knowledge and experience, they let themselves be guided by their feelings and intuitions. They are resilient, ambitious and do not stop before they have created their best work. Be they musicians, dancers or actors, they work perfectly together and support each other to thrive together. They commit themselves to always deliver their best, to fulfil their audience.
With genius scientists, visionary leadership experts and breakthrough businesses
Our programs are anything but woolly and soft with a lot of artistic entertainment. Renaissance Leaders’ programs are firmly grounded in science and business. Scientists help participants explore challenges from unexpected perspectives, while senior leadership experts moderate the journeys and continuously challenge the participants on their leadership. Breakthrough business organizations share their best practices and challenge our participants’ practice.
In the business world, the leader is the artist.
Meet artists and absorb their mastery at close proximity. Experience prestigious cultural institutions’ successful business practices. Meet scientists and leadership experts and reflect with them. Connect with and learn from other organizations.
Renaissance Leaders’ programs revolve around reflection, live experience, interaction and experimentation. Your development is always related to the next meaningful phase of your life and to your organization’s themes and goals.
Non-stop development process
Our programs involve a continuous development process spread over time rather than stand-alone interventions. You will be inspired, challenged and coached throughout your journey at both in-person sessions and between sessions.
Touching your mind, body and soul
We create experiences that take you beyond ‘thinking and talking about’ and embody what makes leaders great. You understand, feel, experience, experiment and act.
Personal and organization development
Our credo is that personal development leads to organizational development. We continuously emphasize the development of the leader embedded in his/her business.
Insights are not enough, you must apply
We continuously challenge you to translate new insights into your day-to-day practice. During the journey, you will grow by experimenting in your daily work and life.
We tap into individuals’ and teams’ talents and strengths. We foster understanding and embrace present and future opportunities. We create successful personal and work experiences that accelerate and reinforce new mindsets and behaviours.
Learning needs are personal
Everyone’s journey is unique. By drawing on a wide range of experiences, interventions, assignments and coaching, we customize our programs to meet everyone’s needs, both at individual and collective level.
Creation in the moment
Each journey grows from the here and now. We do not follow strict defined schedules or rigid models, instead we strive to do the right thing for both individuals and groups with one goal in mind: impact.
Our programs are always underpinned by recent science. Scientific knowledge allows us to understand topics, gain new insights and explore issues.
Results and fun
We create a safe and intimate climate that allows openness, authenticity and fun. Small groups allow deep reflection, focused attention for everyone, and close connection with others.
