Welcome to this online Strategic Leadership program in today’s digital era.

This online learning program consists out of a personal intake, three core modules and a final interview.
All participants are expected to conduct a personal intake interview with a Strategy Consultant from Strategy Works | Strategy Academy to share their personal learning objectives, discuss the required pre-work and to take a personal Strategy Profiler assessment.
