Overview

A unique experience and a life-changing education for a better world from the heart of Poland.

The purpose of the Leadership Academy for Poland is to bring world-class education to Poland and provide outstanding Poles with access to one of Europe’s best leadership development programs. World-class educators, including Harvard professors and other leading international scholars and speakers, deliver interactive classes in a deeply immersive setting and are available for consultations and closed meetings with the participants. The Academy is an opportunity for a deep reflection that re-centers, refreshes and inspires. It also offers practical insights on how to positively reshape ongoing projects, careers, and life.

Our promise is that the Academy will provide the participants with a unique and life-changing experience and a standing resource for their future leadership work and personal life.

In a formal evaluation of the Academy in 2016 as well as 2017 100% participants agreed that we delivered on our promise. See full results of past editions of the program.
