The Tuff Leadership Training Step 1 is now also available online. The difference is that it is a bit longer in scope. It consists of 5 modules (half day 13-17 pm + half day 9-12 am) that extend over 10 weeks. The training is as interactive as if you participated in classrooms, you participate with the same group through the program. More information about the content of Step 1 and what you get out of it here.

Content and layout

The program consists of 6 modules spread over 10 weeks, led by two of our certified Tuff leadership trainers. Each module is an afternoon (13-17) and a subsequent morning (9-12). Between each week with a module is a week when you try out your learnings at work,  an meet with your learning group (also online). The content is completely consistent with the classroom variant and equally intense and transformative.

The training is practical and is designed to develop the approaches and skills needed to make your employees more committed and responsible. Your old patterns and behaviors will be challenged, and you will become aware of pitfalls and strengths. Real-life role-plays, very individual feedback mean that you will find new and better ways to deal with the challenges and problems you are facing. The overall theme is the coaching approach, which is translated into different kinds of conversations such as feedback, coaching and relationship conversations. You get a variety of new tools and keys that you can turn around and try right away. The methodology used is Tuff Leadership Training’s own, which has been developed for more than twenty years and stands out for producing tangible results.
