Leadership Development 24-28 Sept 2013

Personal Leadership, Communication and Appreciative Inquiry. Lido Palace Hotel, Stresa/Baveno, Italy

Welcome to this course within the life giving forces of strengths based leadership and the power of communica­tive processes in organisations. Allow yourself a space in an inspiring multi-national setting to explore and be inspired by how communication and strengths based approaches can support your leadership, enable you to give your best and enable your organisation to become even more successful and sustainable for the future.

This week will offer you inspiration from theory and the latest research within the field but also a possibility to try out different techniques and approaches available to apply in your daily work as a leader. You will have the possibility to explore your own resources and create an action plan for your own leadership and also have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with other resourceful colleagues from different European countries and backgrounds. The collaborative context will increase knowledge development and creativity during our days together.

This is a course given by Senspero in collaboration with Active Change. We offer a long and solid experience of working with leadership development and successful change processes built on appreciative and strenghts based methods and approaches. We also offer unique knowledge within the field of how leaders can lead through communicative processes. Processes that enable people in the organisations to give their best, become involved, increase their motivation and responsibility towards the goal of the organisation.


This course addresses leaders, project leaders and facilitators who aim at leading sustainable and successful organisations and communities. It addresses leaders who like to find ways to use their own resources in the best way to fulfil the goals of the organisation by enabling members to give their best.

The course alternates shorter seminars with various action-based exercises that enable you to experience the difference of the methods and to become comfortable in the way you would like to use them with a sustainable effect. The full board accommodation in a nice environment will also provide time for reflections and discussions with the other participants for a deepened experience.

The course also includes individual coaching with the aim to create an individual plan. This coaching will be followed up by an individual Skype coaching session two months later to support you in the change you would like see for yourself and your organisation.

The course will be given in easy-to-understand English with a possibility for clarifications in Italian and Swedish.
