10 years of ILD - 10 years on a good course.

“Ku’damm 184” – no, this is not another episode of a popular multi-part-TV-series. This was our first ILD company address! Rolex downstairs, a property management company upstairs, us on the fourth floor as subtenants in a small office overlooking the dreary backyard. However, after years of international management experience, also with the certainty that there is a serious lack of good cooperation and leadership in business and society.

Back then, we were often ridiculed if we even brought up topics such as conflict, emotions or leadership effectiveness. Today, it has long been proven that dealing wisely with emotions, uncertainties and resistance, as well as how to behave in conflicts, are key topics for effective and successful collaboration and leadership.

Was it good intuition, experience or coincidence that marked our path at ILD? We tend to think a combination of everything. For us, this always includes humility and the ILD-typical “being in love with success”. Our self-image is important: we are partners at eye level, not service providers or trainers. Only in this way can we work effectively with our clients, create trust and achieve the best possible solutions.

10 years ILD – 10 years on a good course. Everything done right? Certainly not, but your feedback shows us: The compass is calibrated. The course is right. The trim is right. We are sailing hard on the wind of successful cooperation and leadership.

We would like to say thank you. Thank you for your trust, for your feedback, for your support and for the many years of partnership!

Also in the future we will stand for you under the motto “Lead: Yourself. Teams. Transformation” with innovative and proven solutions. We are looking forward to many more successful years of partnership.

ILD Season`s Greetings!

Dear friends and partners of ILD,

“The future depends on what we do today.” This wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi is more relevant than ever. Unfortunately, for many of the current challenges, there is not enough experience to fall back on.

In times of uncertainty, it is our faith, our strengths and the quality of our interpersonal relationships that give us energy, momentum and confidence. This is the age of overarching collaborations, bold new thinking and consistent action for the future.

We would like to express our sincere thanks for the cooperative partnership and wish your loved ones and you a Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year!
With Seasons greetings

Your ILD Team


ILD new sponsor at SCC (one of Berlin’s leading sport clubs and organizer of the Berlin Marathon).

Season opened: exciting game in mega new outfit.

The SCC field hockey team played their opening game away at Rotation in the outfit of the new sponsor Institute for Leadership Dynamics (ILD). With the slogan tracks4me had probably unintentionally predicted the number of goals. A great game ended 4:4, with SCC overcoming a 1:3 deficit with passion, enthusiasm and team spirit.

Frank Strathus, founder and managing partner of ILD was enthusiastic and saw himself confirmed in the decision for this team already after getting to know the team: “the spirit, the passion and the will for development can be felt in this team even as an outsider from the first minutes. This fits the tracks4me product, in that it is about coached future planning and development of young adults.”

tracks4me is an ILD product and supports young adults in matching passion and strengths with a suitable job profile. Which job suits me? Which competence should be developed for it, on which “playing field” do I want to shape my professional future? Questions that apply to sports just as much as they do to career orientation.

The team also went into the first touch with ILD. There was only positive feedback even after the game. There could be a special “track”.

SCC with ILD “on track”.

Not only the season opening was successful, the first home game ended with 1:0 for the SCC against Osternienburg and then followed the away victory with 5:1 in Jena with accompanying table leadership. Keep up on track!
