We help to build competence through trainings balancing theoretical inputs, hands-on-tools and practical experiences. Our events enable exchange with peers for inspiration, feedback and encouragement.

A coherent learning architecture

Changes are never easy and don’t just happen. When supporting organisational change we combine multiple approaches to meet our partner’s specific needs.
Interventions address the needs of the individual, the organisation and the cooperation system in the given cultural context.

Experience based and on-the-job

New competences are developed and practiced on the job in the real world of the company, government department or civil society organisation. Enhancing competences while developing and implementing sound, flexible solutions builds the capacity of organisations to respond to future challenges.

Focus on dialogue and interaction

Workshops, trainings, coaching, peer exchange and other interactive formats are employed to build the needed competences of individuals and organisations – as leaders, managers, coordinators, controllers, implementers – while the change process is on-going.



Organisational Development and Leadership Training

We consider training as a personal development journey. Exploring the values and attitudes as a leader, manager or advisor enhances self-awareness and confidence. The exploration of new approaches and practical application of new tools in a secure group of peers expands and enriches professional skills and virtuosity.


Leading in Change – Dialogue event at Goethe Institut

The event offered a vibrant space for exchange with leaders from business, state and society in Myanmar and an opportunity for reflecting about own leadership styles. In addition, the results of a short research project on images of leadership in Myanmar were presented in form of a small exhibition.


Training Shan State, focus: Organisational performance & facilitation

In 2019, we had the opportunity to take our training to Shan State and work with a motivated, mixed group of public, private sector and civil society representatives.

Upcoming in 2019

Change Forum Myanmar

The Change Forum Myanmar took place on the 4th and 5th of December 2019 and offered 200 leaders and managers, practitioners and professional advisors a platform to share, reflect and learn, drawing on insights from change makers in – and outside the country.


Networking & dialogue

The Change Forum Myanmar created an opportunity for interaction and learning. Parallel workshops, discussions, open spaces, training sequences and more offered the participants the opportunity to explore key issues of organisational change in Myanmar, share approaches, discover new perspectives, expand knowledge, acquire additional skills and build networks.
