Program design Personal Leadership Master Class

The Personal Leadership Master Class does not have a set curriculum. In fact, that would not even work. After all, the subject of this master class is the personal development of its participants. Its contents strongly depend on what the participants want to learn and achieve. That’s also why the approaches are completely interactive. They are adapted to participant contributions. We ensure the required personalized attention with a ratio of one coach or lecturer to every five participants.


This master class is built around several topics that come up in every group. These provide a framework for engaging in personal development. As a participant, you have a great deal of influence over the amount of attention to each topic. It’s all about your needs.

  • Self-reflection: learning to read yourself
  • Empathy: learning to read others
  • Balance in your life
  • The courage to take steps
  • One-on-one sounding board meetings during the last session
