Structure of this training

The training consists of two highly interactive days in which we deal with eight issues. We expect a lot from you and the other participants. Each of these eight subjects has at least one game or exercise. Each activity ends with a debriefing and discussion. This allows the participants to apply the topics they have learned to their own situation and discuss them with the group. You can then instantly apply your experience in your team. Start the transformation!
