Why join the masterclass Inspiring Leadership?
  • What will you learn?
    1. How to be an authentic leader. You will learn about personal values and priorities as well as your personality and dispositions. If you are not authentic as a leader, employees will not trust and follow you.
    2. How to be a visionary leader. Based on the insights about yourself, you will develop a concrete leader vision. A strong vision makes employees enthusiastic and motivates them.
    3. How to be a charismatic leader. You will learn concrete verbal and non-verbal techniques that help you to communicate in an inspiring way. This helps you to be recognised as a charismatic leader who can get employees to give their best efforts to the team.
  • For whom?

    For professionals who are in – or wish to advance to – a leadership position and want to learn how to lead by motivating and inspiring their employees rather than micro-managing and correcting them.
