Lead successfully with the 4Cs Leadership Compass.

At management level, self-reflection and the continuous development of key competencies are important. We support deciders with this proven qualification program, which sustainably strengthens their leadership effectiveness, sovereignty and team competence.

4Cs Leadership Compass® – the leadership program.

Megatrends such as a constantly changing world of work, demographics, digitalisation, AI, New Work and the collaboration of four generations in the workplace require a constant review and realignment of collaboration and leadership. Based on international studies, our experience and our own analyses, we have identified four essential key competencies of collaboration and leadership that have the greatest influence on leadership quality and leadership culture. These are:

  1. Communication & Clarity
  2. Conflict & Emotion
  3. Change & Entrepreneurship
  4. Coaching & Compassion

4Cs Leadership Compass® – modules and focal points

In our proprietary concept The 4Cs of Leadership®, the four essential key competencies of cooperation and leadership are summarised and placed at the centre of this qualification, making leadership a new experience and agility a natural part of the corporate culture.

This qualification programme will enable you to reflect on your own personality, motives and attitude, recognise your own skills and potential and develop your behaviour in a targeted manner by means of internationally scientifically standardised, evidence-based profiling. This takes place in a business and role context.

(…) The consistently positive feedback from all our participants encourages us to gladly continue this joint path with ILD.”

    Stefan Moschko | Head of HR Germany, Siemens AG

  • “The presentation of a real case as part of the HR Business Partner qualification was also a great experience for me as a case giver. The open exchange with the participants gave me new impulses, exciting suggestions for solutions and also really creative ideas that led to ‘thinking out of the box’. I am impressed by everything that happens in this training and the high level of qualification and certification. Keep it up!”

    Dr. Michael Pfeil | Site Head Dessau + Biotechnology/Vice President, Merz Pharma

Since there was always time and space for the group to share their experiences, valuable impulses broadened their own view and strengthened their attitude. Great group dynamics, intensive exchange in a feel-good atmosphere. Thank you very much, ILD!”
