Online personal leadership training: sailing on the waves of your life

In this time of corona crisis you can surely use a mental boost. That’s why an online personal leadership training can increase your mental fitness and mental resilience. We invite you to see your life and work as an adventurous sea voyage. With sometimes high waves and sometimes a calm murmuring sea.

Our faithful Yemaya and corona

October 2019. We have completed the adventurous sailing trips in Greece for that year. We felt grateful for the trust that our participants in these trainings gave us. We brought our faithful sailing catamaran Yemaya to a safe haven. In a beautiful quiet lagoon near Messolonghi. There she could hibernate without being in danger during storms. At that time, we could not yet know that we would not see Yemaya for a long time due to the corona crisis.

For the year 2020 we had quite a number of bookings for our personal leadership trainings in Greece on board. Unfortunately they were all cancelled or rescheduled. All flights to Greece were cancelled. This was and is a difficult time for us.

A new plan

The corona crisis has in any case given us every opportunity to practice for ourselves with what we offer people in our trainings. That is to stay at the helm of your life. Even when it is difficult.

We realized that many people are facing the same problem. After all, the corona crisis affects all of us. And no one knows how it will end. We also thought that in times of crisis we want to inspire people to live and work from strength and personal leadership.

That’s why we developed our online training @The Helm: at the helm of your life and work. We spent months doing research, making video clips, collecting literature, recording exercises. We’ve worked hard, but also had a lot of fun on this adventure.

In the meantime a first law firm has taken our online training. It was a success and really inspiring thing to do. The reviews were very positive. We especially got back that the training is very practical and the metaphor with sailing helps to approach difficult times (high waves) from calm and strength.

The participants also became more aware that your way of reacting is not determined by the circumstances but by how you interpret the circumstances. We are very happy with that, because that is exactly what we want to give our participants. Namely, the knowledge that you have the power to consciously respond to situations instead of getting carried away by the circumstances. We call that: cultivate the skipper in you. The skipper is the leader in you who clearly sees what is happening and knows how to sail well even with headwinds.
