  24. 24. Training Intelligence: Respecting Cultural Diversity International Executive Management Programs are organized in diverse locations and address the aspirations of learners of different nationalities, cultures and functions. Cultural intelligence is key to program design and delivery. Sharing and celebrating diversity becomes a powerful learning tool and a universal experience.

  25. 25. Training Intelligence: Respecting Cultural Diversity Diversity -Intercultural Understanding Openness -Adaptability Key Words
  26. 26. Training Intelligence: Building Resilience Leadership Development Programs often present major challenges: They usually begin with a journey of self-awareness and include various assessment tools (360 questionnaire, self –assessment tools, group coaching, one to one coaching). In some cases participants become overloaded with some findings and project doubt and negativity to the program, to the partner, the Organization and the HR team. In these cases, resilience is key. The learning partner has to collaborate closely with the instructors and with the participants in order to turn the program around, to diffuse positivity and confidence, to fine tune the process. Feedback by every participant is taken on the spot and the curriculum is automatically adjusted and enriched with experiential and bonding team activities in order to reverse the climate.
  27. 27. Training Intelligence: Building Resilience Positivity -Perseverance -Problem Solving Optimism -Strength Key Words
  28. 28. Extraordinary Training: When Competences become Virtues The Greek word for virtue, Arete, refers to a unique combination of ethos, excellence and perfection. For all of us working in the field of Education, Extraordinary Training is not solely about competences; it is also about virtues. Sophia/Σοφία: wisdom and knowledge Sthenos/Σθένος: resilience, bravery persistence, vitality, integrity. Pathos/Πάθος: passion and appreciation for beauty and excellence, humor and playfulness, spirituality, mindfulness, sense of purpose and coherence.
