Quotes from participants from the Training Visionary Leadership,
class 2016:
‘’What appealed to me was the visionary part of the leadership training. As ritual to improve upon I choose ritual 2, Manage by Mind, Lead by Heart (The Ritual of Human Relations). It is not difficult for me to make contact, to be open to people and to seduce them for the good cause, but I find it not so easy to manage all these contacts, to keep them warm and to feed them. This is not something that comes naturally to me. So I want to work on that ritual. I have enjoyed the training. The know-how of the teacher was high and the talks were inspiring. “ (Particpant from Botswana)

“The seminar for visionary leadership gave me the opportunity to be self-critical and analyse my weaknesses, not just this but it provided me with the tools necessary to counter my weaknesses and, potentially, turn them into strengths. I would consider myself strong in some areas, but there is definitely room for much improvement. This seminar ultimately gave me the tools.“ (Particpant from Zambia)

Personal Effectiveness (1 day)

Would you like to enhance your personal power and be more effective in achieving your goals? This interactive seminar is based on Stephen Covey’s famous book “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”. In this one-day seminar the facilitator will offer you seven tools

A circle is made on the ground and each member of the group removes their right shoe and throws it into the circle randomly. Then, the group is split in two or three teams. Each group
identifies and appoints the person to give instructions and the person to execute the instructions. The person executing the instructions will be blind folded with a cloth and the person giving the instrucions is supposed to give his back to the circle.
