CAMINO: Your Personal Leadership Journey

The CAMINO is a one-day, intensive workshop, with a practical, real-life approach, delivered (online and/or face to face) in small groups and targets to have a big, positive impact on you and your career.
As the challenges change, opportunities rise and competition becomes tougher, re-discovering your leadership skills and redefining your own leadership journey is a priority. The CAMINO (in Spanish: journey) will help you to reflect, refocus and renew your leadership journey; to gain new insights to boost your leadership potential by diving into practicing and experimenting with your leadership skills, instead of only theorizing and experimenting.

Purpose, Values + Vision

The THREADS program is about leadership development and cross cutting issues. The aim of THREADS is to help professionals understand leadership skills and pursue their own journey: CAMINO.

CAMINO was to designed to help the participant dive into practicing and experimenting with their leadership skills, instead of only theorizing. It is a leadership development program aiming to help participants understand and assess their own leadership skills, realize potential room for improvement, and develop further their leadership potential to pursue personal development.
To help the participants prepare properly for the training experience, they will receive introductory material two weeks before the actual training day, to walk them through different aspects of leadership in organizational context.

  • Interactive discussion on the participants’ experience and the material they received. 
  • Leadership theories & styles, and reflection on them. 
  • Focus on necessary leadership skills, such as effective communication and non-verbal communication within the organizational context, with the aim to improve collaboration, performance and conflict management skills.
  • Development of a personal development plan (PDP) on leadership. The participants write down their PDP and receive feedback on it from the trainer and fellow participants.

Participants receive individual coaching on their PDP in order to make adaptations, (if necessary) in order to make it SMART and doable.
