St. Gallen Leadership Program

This 2-part seminar covers all the aspects of direct and indirect leadership.


The St. Gallen Leadership Program provides comprehensive knowledge of effective leadership. Actively managing success based on leadership excellence is the key topic of this program.

Success and leadership competence are inseparably linked: Top performance requires top leadership; leadership skills have to be nurtured on all hierarchical levels of a corporation, or institution.

Leadership should never be a onedimensional approach: What is the point of highly motivated employees if the strategic direction of the company is wrong? What good does the introduction of objectives and qualification systems if over-complexity and inertia stifle individual initiatives? Where do visionary activities and ambition lead if the necessary management and leadership systems are not in place to guide the process?

The St. Gallen Leadership Program builds all critical elements of successoriented leadership into a comprehensive system. Most recent research insights are combined with best practice concepts. Creative ideas and unconventional approaches to success are demonstrated in various examples.

All relevant building blocks for resultoriented leadership concepts are put together step by step. We provide the necessary tools to support the implementation process and to ensure the expected results.
