During our intensive leadership programs, we take our participants to special places, away from their standard environment, without distracting impulses, watches or telephones (digital detox). Time to slow down, time to stop. Taking the time to feel, experience and think whether they are still on the right track: with themselves, the team and the organization they lead. To accelerate again afterwards ...
Every improvement starts with awareness. For awareness you need space, peace and reflection.
Real leaders do not repeat, but also renew...
We create 8-10 leadership journeys per year where final responsible management (Schotland and Chamonix) and professionals (Ardennes) can refuel for their leadership in a safe environment. Through a sophisticated (management) program full of peace and reflection, there is time for yourself and sharing insights. With all the comfort of a beautiful chalet or lodge in the middle of nature with a good chef and 2 till 3 enthusiastic leadership trainers / coaches.

Because the bar is set high, it is more than worth your valuable time investment because you return home with urgent concrete points and a safety net to ensure that these points will also be carried out."

Armand Baas Becking, Director Intermediair bij Coöperatie DELA

The intensive leadership program of Berg & Partners offers a pleasant stop to charge the battery and reflect on personal and business goals. A great experience that provides new insights and friends."
Ralph van Iersel, Managing Director DANVO BAKERIES
"Thank you Team Berg & Partners! What you get loose in a few days in a group is special, I have never experienced this before.

I enjoyed and look back on the topics discussed daily, it has brought me a lot personally!"
Aswin Linden, Director Development and Manufacturing bij HELIOX
"Super experience, recommended to everyone!"
Joris van der Waart, Chief Marketing Officer CM TELECOM
"Taking a step back for a minute. Looking at yourself and your organization from a different perspective. Not working, but working on yourself. Gaining new insights. Growing, as a person. And with that as a professional. The Leadership Expedition of Berg & Partners offers it all. In an impressively beautiful environment you can completely separate yourself from everything. Everything but really everything is taken care of down to the last detail. A beautiful location, warm hospitality, the necessary movement and a solid, well thought-out substantive program brought by experienced supervisors. I also experienced the input of the other participants as extremely pleasant and valuable. In short: a valuable experience with a lasting effect."
Wim Swaak, Director of Region MAASVELD KORAAL GROEP
"The expedition, 'accelerate by slowing down', yes it works! In a beautiful setting, at the foot of Mont-Blanc, free from all worries, working together with trainers and like-minded people on leadership questions and your next step. Appealing, stimulating, inspiring, groundbreaking and thorough. Both the group sessions and the one-on-one sessions give you a good insight into your own actions and behavior. Partly thanks to the unique composition of the group, this expedition, which was perfectly organized, is more than a success for me confidently on to the next step!"
Peter van der Pas, Director ING PRIVATE BANKING
"It was great how complementary we were as a team of entrepreneurs and corporates, this promoted learning from each other was certainly very inspiring. Our Berg & Partners coaches were also very complementary: in changing roles, one was confrontational, the other complimented and challenged and the third observed incredibly sharply. Very educational, good atmosphere and by slowing down or even braking you create overview which results in insight."
Marcel Figge, Director SENTECH
"I would like to thank you again for a fantastic experience last week. I am still bursting with energy and I think it is fantastic to come to such beautiful insights only by asking the right questions and the right facilitation (read program). Without knowing program in advance to the finesse and to surrender (rely on) to your expertise has given me the insight that it will be okay. Fine detail is that it was taken care of down to the last detail. The program was great."
Frank Koole, Manager Finance VB Groep
"Very beautiful and valuable. Gives a lot of insight into myself and my leadership. This was already there, but it comes out and becomes visible. From here nice steps can be taken. Thanks Ilse, Toine, Marcel and Wilbert."
Ivonne Freriks, International Sales Manager HABUFA Meubelen
"I started open minded because I believe that regular reflection and reflection of your own work is always good. To be able to experience such a process with "like-minded people" was a beautiful, inspiring experience. The group dynamic was well, it is an intensive program but there is also a lot of laughs. The environment is unique, an environment full of peace and quiet with beautiful views. Everyone has similar leadership issues, all with their own accents. The feedback from supervisors and participants that you know so briefly is striking. It gave me great insights again."
Michiel-Bastiaan Kerskes, CCO Smart Clinical Products BV
"Working on your leadership qualities in an 'amazing' environment. Where real steps are taken towards the genuine membership of your leadership."
Simon Sants, Managing Director JASNO Shutters
"Participation in this expedition, in a very special and inspiring location, has brought me to personal insights that I could not previously identify as such. Because I now know better how my leadership comes across to others and I am aware of it, I can do it better dosed. It was an eye opener."
Stefan Suy, Partner JOANKNECHT & VAN ZELST
"I experienced the journey to Chamonix as valuable. Being away from my environment, in combination with the good guidance from the Berg & Partners team, contributed significantly to the fact that I could also take the rest to think, about the next step in my own development and that of my organization. Sharing experiences with fellow entrepreneurs and the good discussions about this, have given me new insights that I will take into account in my further development."
Mike Krol, Managing Director TAJIMA EUROPE
"An expedition to remember! The combination of a fantastic location and a professional Berg & Partners team ensures that you get the peace of mind to think about your next steps. The setting with fellow entrepreneurs is also an enrichment. There is a great diversity of participants, you will find sparring partners in many areas that broaden your scope. My thanks to the Berg & Partners team and all fellow entrepreneurs for the inspiring journey."
John van Helden, Director YOOKR
"Being together with like-minded people provides a fascinating set of questions and answers about yourself, the other participants, your functioning at home and at work. Where you think you have to decide many things with your head (quickly) on a daily basis, you will learn here that rest and listen to your heart also contribute to a stronger “I.” You get tools that contribute to doing this even better. I am especially happy that I can learn again and when I start the day with “putting my feet solid to the ground”, identifying a number of physical exercises and the importance of the activities of the day, I notice that I can easily handle the day. I am going to show myself and that is my greatest challenge!"
Paul den Ronden, Director PROLEASE
"In the first place, the leadership expedition gave me peace in a pleasant, safe environment in the middle of the Highlands, far from civilization. Because of this environment and the group dynamics, I have come to new / different insights. What I find really important, what am I going to change and how am I going to do that?"
