Training: Leadership from within, The Netherlands

Purpose, Ethics and Values in Action

Thursday, 23. March 2017 - 11:00 to 17:00

 ‘Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.’ - Rumi

Are you...
  • a young professional or ‘young at heart’?
  • ambitious and looking to make a difference in today’s society?
  • looking for ways to further explore your purpose, values and ethics?
  • enthusiastic about going on this journey with inspiring people from all across Europe? 

 Do you recognize yourself in the above profile? Then start your journey now and join us on the Leadership from Within programme. This programme will be in English.


During this three day programme, we will dive into the mechanisms of the human brain and investigate our perceptions. We will work on letting go, building trust and taking initiatives. We will turn our new understandings and experience into action by learning to lead ourselves, our life and the world around us. We will combine theory and practice, use storytelling, experiential learning and mindfulness, to become fully aware of attitudes and behaviours. This will serve as a first step for conscious choices and behavioural changes in our personal and professional lives.

Join us! 

You can register through our online form:


Day 1 | focus on slowing down and discover how your brain maps the world around you

Day 2 | explore your purposes and experience systemic work and family constellations

Day 3 | start exploring, applying and living our values – To ‘walk our talk’

To facilitate your journey we offer every participant an individual coaching session with one of the trainers in the month after the three day training.
