Because of overwhelming feedback to our Top 100 Leadership Camps and a growing request by our clients, we will offer Open-enrollment Dierke Houben Leadership Programmes in 2019 for senior leaders. Stay tuned, these elite programs for a hand-picked number of next generation c-suite leaders will be announced soon.
We also continue to offer our in-house Top 100 Leadership Camps, customized to the needs of our clients:
"Culture eats strategy for breakfast!" Based on our experience, we confirm Peter Drucker's famous warning by heart. Culture is "the way we do things here" – more often than not, obstructing the newly defined strategy. Thus, culture transformation is nothing abstract, apart from the business – it is disciplined behaviour transformation throughout the entire company, starting from the top. Experience supports what research has shown: The most effective lever for aspired new attitudes and behaviours is a strongly aligned Management Team (100+) that consciously acts as a role model ("Shadow of the Leaders"). Thus, developing, enabling and aligning top executives in their critical culture-shaping role is key.
- Do you want to reinforce your strategy by shaping your company's culture?
- Do you want your Top 100 leaders perform at full potential, committed to the joint cause?
- How to trigger a quantum leap in collaboration and leadership practices at the top level?
To catalyze a quantum leap, you have to inspire managers to jointly reflect and adapt their behaviours. Taking up their challenge, we offer a highly effective combination:
- creating a unifying Management Team experience
- uncovering (un-)productive collaboration dynamics
- reflecting Top 100 team members’ contributions.
With our proprietary and highly appreciated Top 100 Leadership Camps, we create a feedback-rich, self-energizing process of transforming leadership behaviour throughout the top executive group. Typically, we design and run our Leadership Camps in 6 waves with our client’s Top 100. We work intensely with small cross-functional groups of 15-20 managers, focussing on two major goals: 1. "Strengthening and aligning the Top 100 Management Team" to jointly reflect and adapt behaviours according strategy and to collaborate more effectively; 2. "Developing the individual’s leadership capabilities" to enhance in-depth self-reflection and personal growth and to connect on a deeper personal level for trustful relationships.
As experts in anchoring new behavioural practices through tailor-made leadership development we enable business leaders throughout the organisation with the reflective competencies they need to bring the aspired culture into being. Enriched by state-of-the-art knowledge and Insead Group Coaching, our Top 100 Leadership Camps are a unique blend of small team assignments, group discussions, self-reflection based on 360° feedback reports, open peer feedback, case studies, action learning, and Google’s Mindfulness Practices.
