Act2Manage Application

An interactive, gamification-based, practice-oriented leadership development application that provides immediate help and enables follow-up to the most common dilemmas.

Deliberate Leadership Program

It helps you gain the basic knowledge you need to lead people in five one-day modules, and you use coaching to ensure that the knowledge you gain is integrated into everyday life.

Developing Team Cohesion

The program improves team cohesion. Using the philosophy of strength, we develop self-knowledge, help us get to know each other better, and place emphasis on follow-up.

Deliberate Leadership Program Pro

Drawing on 21st century discoveries in behavioural and neuroscience, the program helps leaders to develop their personal development, retain staff, improve performance and manage change more effectively.

Change Management Support

We use behavioural science to link employee behaviour to business results during change, to make the new conditions sustainable and permanent.

Deliberate Lean Leadership

This program combines and complements the development of classical leadership competencies with the principles of “Lean Leadership” and the tools of Lean leadership. Not only in production and near-production areas, but also in the office environment.

Strengths-based self-awareness program

The program aims to raise awareness and support employees to build on their strengths and use them consciously in their everyday work..

Strengths-based self-awareness and leadership program

Leaders who do their job by building on their strengths are more motivated and outperform those who focus on developing their weaknesses. The program helps to achieve this.
