    Dear Team,

    We are hosting interactive workshop called “The Art of Leadership in the 21st Century”.

    Thursday, February 15 at 6:30 PM
    Rented room in the “Eglise réformée française”, Schanzengasse 25, 8001 Zürich

    Agility is on everyone’s lips, so is innovation. The world is changing faster, and thus companies and social initiatives need to be more agile and creative in adjusting to new demands. The burning question is: What kind of leadership is needed to create an agile culture in organizations? And can anyone be a leader?

    We will present you a model for leadership called “The 5 ways to lead” and guide you through experiential exercises. You will discover the impact that you can have when you tap into your leader within you and you will learn a wider range of leadership. In addition, you will have an opportunity to meet like-minded people and exchange your experiences.

    Price: CHF 35 per person, payable in cash at the day of the event
    Time: 6.30 pm to 9 pm with ½h time for networking in between
    Registration: Please register in advance because the number of participants is limited. For questions and registration please contact us via natalia.stolyga@gmail.com or Eventbrite.com.

    Who is leading the workshop:
    Natalia Stolyga is a coach for personal development and leadership, facilitator.
    Daniela Ziegler is an experienced organizational and personal development expert & leadership coach.

    *don’t let the location confuse you, it is a leadership workshop and there are no ties to religion.

    We will be grateful if you could post your event on your website.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards,
