Leadership and management myths are too often at the centre of unproductive debates and at the source of countless failures in leadership and management decisions.


In a very competitive and challenging set-up, this course consists largely of practical workshops aiming solely at putting leadership and management myths to the test.


Purposely opposite to a theoretical approach, the workshops give participants the opportunity to test what myths work and what myths do not, to develop the intuition of what needs to be done to successfully drive a team or an organisation to a goal and to develop a pragmatic understanding of how organisations – as living entities - function.


During the course, managers, leaders and political professionals can experiment in a safe and confidential environment, re-discover their potential, sharpen their leadership intuition and trade experience, techniques and insight with other participants.
