Why join the masterclass Executive Peak Performance?

  • What will you learn?

    This masterclass will provide you with the tools and techniques to develop and optimise your professional behaviour and mindset. In this masterclass, we work within 3 dimensions:

    1. Authenticity: your inner bridgebuilder
      You will learn how to recognise the power and pitfalls of your authentic business self and how to be genuine and sincere with  your intrinsic motivation and external impact.
    2. Empathy: connecting to others
      You will be familiarised with an empathy-driven  approach to effective individual and group communication. You will also learn how to connect and respond to the feelings, drives and thoughts of others.
    3. Collaboration: retreiving results
      You will discover your own techniques that help you collaborate under pressure, deal with the unexpected and perform during board-level presentations.

    Intake interview

    Your course begins 1 day before the start of the masterclass with a 45 minute 1-on-1 online session to define a personal baseline and extract your unique learning goals.
