We believe that Leadership is DEFINABLE and LEARNABLE

Do you want to make bigger impact by becoming a better leader? SEED’s Business Leadership Program is a unique 6 month journey where you learn from executives who have done it before.

We are not academics and we are not in the know-how business. Instead, we will help you focus on what really matters: the most important leadership DO-HOWs for greater leadership impact.

BETTER LEADERS - BETTER WORLD

SEED LEADERSHIP ESSENTIALS

To become a ‘black-belt’ leader, you must excel in three major areas.

It is like juggling with 3 balls.

During the BLP journey, you will learn what and how to do with each „ball” and how to juggle with them simultaneously.

RAISE YOUR PROFILE

Leadership begins with YOU.

The first „ball” is about you, and how you make direct impact on others. If you cannot manage yourself, forget about everything else. Leadership must be based on being AUTHENTIC and BALANCED, having a strong ASPIRATION to create new value in the world, making the right DECISIONS and INSPIRING others around you.

You will have multiple opportunities to reflect on yourself and get feedback from your team-mates, mentors and coaches during the journey.

SERVE YOUR PEOPLE

Leadership is not a position, but a SERVICE.

Leadership is about being followed by others. Not by authority and force. But why should anybody follow you? How will you create an ENVIRONMENT people want to join and stay at? How will you SELECT and DEVELOP your people? How will you BUILD a great leadership team around you where your common goals are more important than individual interests?

Finding the answers is what is the second „ball” about.

DRIVE YOUR BUSINESS

At the end of the day, this is about building a great business.

With the third „ball” you get into defining a good STRATEGY, differentiating your offer, finding your value proposition and TRANSFORMING and navigating your business through an ever changing environment.

As a leader you are designing the organization you need, you are the one LEADING CHANGE, and creating CUSTOMER CENTRICITY.

It is very nice, that the mentors also share their personal experience besides their theories and methods.

SEED is one of the best things that happened to me during the last several years. It gave me new vision and the energy to try to become a better leader than currently I am.

I think it is a very good program, when you really want develop yourself as a person and it allows you to improve more conciously.

I am absolutely thrilled with the program. You start from aspiration and values, continue with building the story around people and, at the end, you tackle with your final goal – how to drive the business. Mentoring and coaching techniques during the program are refreshing and using these techniques after the program suit you with the most useful tool – how to learn continuously and efficiently. For me this is the key takeaway.

SEED’s Business Leadership Program was a very good executive educational program for me. What I gained from SEED and what it means for me is how to set aspirational goals, and how to build a team to achieve these goals.

Great venue with a comprehensive leadership principles overview, focusing strongly on a practical side of leadership. I really enjoyed the teamwork during the training and I can strongly recommend the program to those, who would like to move their leadership skills to upper level. One of the best workshops, which I have ever experienced.
