Dance with your dragons


The dragons of transformation and leadership are personal limits, organizational mindsets, and the challenges of complexity. People who have the task or opportunity to lead significant change can sometimes be intimidated by the fuzzy front end of it. Are you curious about how best to apply the lessons of creativity to your leadership?

In this program participants will experience an active introduction in how to enlarge and enhance your influence. You will focus on yourself, on others and on the environment in order to create the dance floor for the “dance with dragons.”

    transform yourself;
  • Set the climate for innovative mindsets in your organization:
    transform climate; and
  • Leverage the paradoxes that come with your challenges and opportunities:
