Event Details

we help great scientists become great leaders.

In a climate where excellence in research and output criteria are increasingly dominating and where research funding is increasingly project-based, the best research emerges out of the creative interaction of highly talented and ambitious team members, whose commitment is often only temporary.

Based on our experience in academic organisations (universities and research institutes) we have developed a Leadership Programme for Academic Leaders, focussing on:

  • enhancing your self management: what leads me & how can I lead myself?
  • optimising your leadership skills: how can I lead others?
  • getting the best out of your team: how can I inspire synergy between people?

Common thread: finding real working solutions and approaches based on your own true colours: your talents, your preferences, your allergies & your challenges. The programme is a well defined blend of group training and individual coaching.

Testimonials of former participants

  "The lonely genius who is inventing smart solutions in his or her own world is becoming, or already is, an extinct species. Academic research is increasingly conducted in teams" (*)

True Colours


... an inner guerillero – who wants to make its own choices rather than endure the choices of others – is hiding in each of us

... our true colours – our talents, preferences, allergies and aspirations – are the source of energy for these choices

... people in organisations need each other to translate what they no longer want into what they do want

... it’s our dream in each project to renew the desire of people and organisations to really give new things a chance


... created True Colours – a ‘partner in crime’ for organisations that see themselves faced with important, sometimes difficult, strategic choices; for teams that want to strengthen their teamwork; for individuals who are confronted with professional challenges.

... focus, in each of our programmes, on developing leadership and self-leadership.

... challenge organisations, teams and individuals to break through non-productive patterns and to choose change.

... go further in our interventions than intentions or dreams. Every project includes concrete plans and practical approaches.

... search constantly for the right balance between confrontation and comfort.
