Various studies have shown that the most valuable skill among executives is strategic acumen, or in other words, the ability to continually think and act in a strategically effective manner. If this executive is also a strong leader of people, the potential is virtually limitless. We are passionate about developing authentic and purpose-driven, strategic leaders. Here is how we approach the subject:
For more than a decade, we have perfected our approach to leadership development. It is built around the concept of “The Leadership Cube”.
It is through the act of balancing the skills represented in the six sides of The Cube that leaders become increasingly conscious of their own impact, and strongly enhancing their strategic acumen at the same time.
‘We need conscious leaders to really drive sustainable strategies’ – Thor Olafsson
Mastering the 6 perspectives of strategic leadership is key for today’s leaders
Cube Sides Explained
We help leaders to gain a deeper understanding of who they are and how they impact others. This is the foundation of the leadership cube.
A leader does not get far without a strong team. We help leaders develop teams that are aligned in every way with the execution of the company´s strategy. This ensures progress on a larger scale.
Vision & Purpose
We help leaders become more visionary and to communicate their vision in an inspiring way.
Next we help leaders design a strategic plan that moves the organisation towards its vision. This requires skills such as collaboration, communication, delegation and trust.
Structure & Processes
We work with leaders on aligning their organisational structure to their business strategy. The aim is increased efficiency.
Key Performance Indicators
We help leaders define a small but effective dashboard of KPIs that transcend organisational silos and directly monitor strategy execution.

We deliver the best value for our clients with our customised Leadership Academies which are based on the Leadership Cube philosophy. Each Academy is unique in the way it generates measurable results on individual, team and organisational levels. All of our academies do have one thing in common though: A significant impact on business results through a long-term integrated approach. It is the length and combination of our process that truly delivers results.
How a typical Leadership Academy is structured:
In order for leadership development programmes to deliver an acceptable return on investment, the content not only needs to be of the highest quality, but they need to be delivered by passionate professionals. In close cooperation with our clients, we create customised programmes and set standards with our integrated approach.
We implement extensive leadership programmes for organisations, for leadership teams and also for individual managers. These Leadership Academies are conducted over a period of 6 - 18 months, depending on the complexity of the project.
By combining training programmes with both team and individual coaching and profiling tools (e.g. 360° Feedback), we create individually adapted leadership programmes that generate both a measurable economical and a personal benefit for managers. We support leaders and their teams in developing their strategic thinking, their effective decision making process and in acting more efficiently. Training programmes form an important part of Leadership Academies. They can be structured in three distinct levels that are build on each other: a leadership foundation, advanced leadership skills and strategic leadership skills.
