Executive development

General approach and training philosophy

Our training philosophy is based on the effectiveness of experience-based learning.

We have combined the approaches of systemic consultation, organisational development and group dynamics over our many years of practical experience. We have integrated the latest discoveries in the field of neuroscience into our training philosophy in recent years. The significance of the body as a medium for awareness and the instinctive dimensions of consciousness are particularly relevant for learning and development here. This led us to the development of advisory and training methods which incorporate body awareness and intuitive abilities into the learning process. We have had particularly good experiences with our own formats of structure simulation which came from our own investigative and developmental research in the area of the system constellations.

Person focused learning within the context of the organisation.

Individual learning never takes place in isolation; it is always within the framework of the organisation and linked to this framework. Our learning architectures mediate between individual learning, learning in the group and from the group and organisational learning. This may occur through supported mini projects by the participants, targeted interventions in the organisation, dialogues with key staff from the organisation, reflection workshops on all hierarchy levels involved ("the complete system in a room") or other forms.

Process oriented learning

We use the particular situation in the "here and now" repeatedly for individual and group learning. This means that the content can be increased in reality and it is emotionally pertinent. We therefore plan spaces for reflection when designing the seminars and we intervene according to the situation as trainers. This is facilitated by rolling planning which can be adapted to the requirements or learning opportunities of the particular situation.

Learning in action situations

The most important learning objective is the acquisition of situation based ability to perform plus the ability to control one's own behaviour in a way appropriate to the particular situation. Conventional training methods are often focused on proven theoretical models and practical examples are then sought to match them.

Professional life does however involve complex situations. This is why we successfully develop simulations of organisation relevant decision making situations, plus advice relevant to cases in practice and practical issues of the participants.
