The Stifinder Programme

The Stifinder Programme comprises three connected modules each of 4-5 days. You will gain knowledge, experience and insights, and you will have time to practice and train your learnings between the modules. In this way, the 3 modules and the periods in between create a continuous development process. The training will take place in plenary sessions, in teams and in periods of individual reflection. In addition to the training facilities, we involve the surrounding nature.

As preparation for Module 1 we ask you to bring a comprehensive and challenging case that you will be working on through the course. In that way the Stifinder Programme becomes a sort of training camp where the introduced methods and processes can be put to practical use in a specific case concerning you as a leader and the current challenges you are facing.

In order to gain the optimal outcome of the Stifinder Programme, we recommend that you complete all three modules over a period of 8-14 months.
