The St. Gallen Center for Personal Leadership & Motivation has extensive expertise in developing and coaching executives worldwide. Close client relationships and regular exchanges allow you to pick up trends in a changing work environment and to rethink your leadership.

Digital transformation, industry 4.0, global networking, flexible working hours and types, demographic change, diversity of teams, multi-channel communication represent challenges companies have to face in the future. Organizations that undergo an early change in terms of management culture will gain a long-term advantage in the competition for the best products, services, and employees.

Executives in a working environment 4.0 know how to deal with the increasing complexity of markets and the progressive digitization. They also master every aspect of modern leadership tools when it comes to organizational development and personnel management. A pioneering leadership culture is based on open and flexible structures, confidence in its teams and individual responsibility of employees, and their interconnectedness. Besides that, coaching is just as essential as establishing a feedback culture.

But the most important requirement for a manager is not to see the word “Leader” as a formal title. It is rather a conscious choice for a role. To take on and to live the role as leader you have to reflect and confront yourself with:

  • the definition of values, the creation of visions and missions
  • unfolding potential, development, and change
  • motivation, empathy, communication and interaction with people
  • own life style and life balance
  • perspectives and ways of thinking, paradigm shifts and taking risks

Our concept of ,principle-based leadership' challenges top executives, managers and high potentials - intellectually, mentally and physically. We give everything so you can achieve clarity about your personality and responsibility as a leader and thereby create the conditions for building an authentic leadership brand and the development of a forward-looking and an effective leadership roadmap.
