Our Program

 

Join us on a learning journey with a difference. Our interactive course offering provides you with exclusive insights, peer-to-peer discussions and gives you confidence and the knowledge you need to achieve your professional goals. 

Your program at a glance

When you take on a leadership role, you can't rely on experience and routine alone; you also have to deal with new, complex, unfamiliar situations. More than ever, leaders need a reliable navigation system to hone their skills. Our LeadershipNext program provides that navigation system with topics ranging from strategic competence to leadership skills, cultural change, and personal excellence. 

Duration 

Our program starts every year in March as well as in September and lasts for 10-12 weeks. It is also possible to book individual online modules. 




Please note that we do not cover travel or accommodation costs for attending live sessions. However, we are happy to assist you with the organization. 


Program type

Our program consists of 7 online modules (180 minutes each) in class and 2 live sessions (half-day) in the extended network. 




We offer in-person and virtual workshops, digital learning, experimental Go & See, and expert coaching to best advance your career! 

Procedure

 A qualified faculty member will work with you on a specific area of expertise. You will then work on a case study in small groups and present and discuss it together. 



In addition, a face-to-face or digital meet-up with a faculty member of your choice is available so that you can be individually supported and address sensitive topics. 

Equipment

Laptop, tablet or cell phone, the Zoom app, and a stable internet connection are the only technical requirements you need to participate in our program.

 Events 2022 

In the next round of our exclusive Wine & Cheese Talk series, we are pleased to welcome a very special talk guest: Dr. Jörg Ehmer has been CEO of Apollo, Germany's leading omnichannel optical retailer since 2014 and is also chairman of the supervisory board of Pearle Austria and a member of the board of the Indian chain Vision Express. Through his many years of experience, he not only has a broad know-how in industry and retail, but also recognised early on, that diversity makes a group sustainably more successful and the system more resilient. Jörg Ehmer is firmly convinced that diversity is not a product of chance and therefore also stands behind his credo "Talk about it, but above all act". 

We are already excited to learn more about Dr. Jörg Ehmer and how he has managed to make Apollo a pioneer for diversity.
