Course quality: excellent
Instructors: excellent
Other (e.g. materials, infrastructure): excellent
Primary takeaway: There are many takeaways as the course was very productive and was full of big and small life-hacks. It was about leadership and company strategy and helicopter view and how is better to track own success and also about people leadership. It's the best course in my life.
Things to improve: it's already the best!

About the course

Our one-of-a-kind, fully immersive simulation aiming to condense years of leadership experience into a few days.

It can take 10 years of bitter experience in the field for a manager to acquire the knowledge to lead an organization effectively. Thanks to our extensive research findings, you have the opportunity to condense this learning experience into just a few days. Through an immersive simulation reproducing real-life scenarios that are likely to arise in any organization, you will learn key leadership lessons and practice your responses to extremely challenging situations.

What can you expect?

A fully immersive simulation, where we facilitate participants’ learning through carefully crafted situations that emulate real-life scenarios.

Some of the situations encountered include:

  • Leading teams through challenging situations
  • Making decisions under high pressure
  • Handling difficult and emotional conversations
  • Managing stress levels and developing coping mechanisms
