Well-being Leadership Development Expedition


One of the many changes the coronavirus pandemic has brought is a new, hybrid way of working. Leadership has always had its challenges, but with teams working remotely, and individuals and organisations facing high levels of uncertainty, many leaders find themselves in a different ball game. How can you show resilience, while staying emotionally connected with teams and people around you? In leading by example, how do you combine responsibility with vulnerability?

In ‘the new normal’, the mental health and well-being of leaders, teams, and systems have become more important than ever. This is where the Well-being Leadership Development Expedition comes in: an open and inspiring opportunity to reshape conditions for learning and leading, and to integrate well-being as a worthy perspective on work. In the Well-being Leadership Development Expedition, hearts, minds, and hands come together as the embodiment of ‘the best of our  knowledge’. The Well-being Leadership Development Expedition will help you to understand and to embrace true well-being, by personal development and connection. You wouldn’t expect anything less from a ‘people-first' university!

explanation sign up options:

As you can see below in the sign-up possibilities, there is an option for Group A (8 spots available) and Group B (8 spots available) for every starting moment which makes a total of 16 spots available for each expedition. 

This is because the first half of the expedition (day 1, day 2, and day 3) takes place with half your expedition group (of 8 leaders each) to allow for a more personal learning environment when learning about LEAD SELF and LEAD OTHERS. The second half of your expedition (day 4, day 5, and day 6) takes place with your entire expedition group (16 leaders). This process visualised in the image below. 

There is no difference in content for option A and option B; you can sign up for the option with dates that suit you best.
