The flow and combination of the programme were very good, and it gave me clarity on questions that I already had. I have been doing a lot of things based on what I think is right, and now I feel that I have more theories, a foundation to base my actions on. The programme was eye-opening and it gave me more courage to continue what I have started in my company. When you start this kind of programme, it can all seem a bit blurry or fluffy, but I did find a lot of things very applicable to my daily work. I would definitely recommend this programme to the top management and to a level below. It is crucial for those people to understand the trends and movements of the ecosystems because sometimes people get stuck in the more traditional ways of leading. It has been a really valuable journey.
It was very valuable to discuss and benchmark with other executives from different companies. The content of Liquid Leader focused on important topics and the entire programme was very up to date. It was surprising how much company culture came up during the programme, as many don’t talk about it at all. It is something untouchable. The programme reinforced my ideas on the importance of networking and network management. Realising that you are on a right track is rewarding and helps you to focus on key issues. I can recommend the programme, the content was very up to date and the participants were of high standard.
Through the programme, I strengthened the trust in my thinking and in doing things differently. I also reinforced the fact that development happens in ecosystems that constitutes many partners. This means more demanding leadership situations than before. Liquid Leader is a fundamental part of the shared dialogue that we all need to be able to start working successfully in ecosystems. You have to start working in ecosystems even if you are not 100% sure which challenge it is that you have to solve. The combination of theories and company cases had the right balance, and the length of the programme was very good. The exchange with the other participants was also very valuable.
The concrete examples that emerged in the programme were really valuable, these helped me with my own leadership style. Many things started to live in my mind, such as how far a person can stretch. It is best to not accept the first solution that comes to mind but discuss options with other people to find the best solutions. Moving forward with the easiest option doesn’t always lead to the best outcome. Through the programme I got confirmation on how important it is to stay on top of change. I understood that I need to make small changes with my team all the time to keep us up to date. I got the strength to do many difficult things in a better way. I can recommend the programme, it is well suited to producers, members of management teams and anyone responsible for people.
