The second block consists of accompaniment and joint work for about three months.

We start two cohorts a year: the start is in January and in September.

Details and dates

Self-directed learning

Learning and development does not work with training alone: what is learned must also be transferred into practice, must prove itself in one’s own environment and, last but not least, must also fit in with other practices.

We call this the 70:20:10 rule:

  • Training: 10% of the training us “classroom” situations, firmly planned, largely fixed agenda
  • Cohort or team: 20% collaborative learning as a team, often with supervision from a coach.
  • Alone and with peer feedback in my team: 70% as part of normal work and with individual rhythm and schedule

This means that all important activities depend on personal initiative.

We believe that people who want to become leaders and are able to do so will show this initiative. Therefore, this program relies heavily on self-work, encouraging peer support and feedback.

However, the elements are not equally distributed over the course of a learning journey: At the beginning we place some trainings to give orientation, build structure and knowledge, which are important as you drive the growth more and more autonomously.

Later on, the program focuses on: increasing the skills, accompanying the implementation, building own experience, strengthening impact.
