 All those who are about to take on the above challenges

ERA phases include:

 An experiential learning/exposure part for the manager in a totally different environment from his/her own, be it professional, geographic, social, cultural. This will be tailored to the specific leadership development needs and goals and around broad topics of relevance both for his/her work and for the organisation’s values and

 A facilitated time for reflection and exchange on the insights gained from these experiences: Awe, irritation, inspiration, embarrassment – dilemmas, questions, challenges of values, ethics, culture … This phase is preceded by own or e-based group work on relevant selected material of different sources (philosophy, history, politics, drama, arts)

 A facilitated session on the application of the ERA experience to the personal and professional context – improving system thinking, empathy, team motivation,innovation competence and ambiguity tolerance … leading to concrete steps for leadership improvement.

ERA will be implemented in co-creation with the customer and in cooperation with partners of different domains, depending on development objectives.
