Leadership Journey

Are you ready to grow as a purpose-driven leader?

Leadership is changing. It’s no longer about command and control and it’s not about having all the answers. Figuring out how to lead differently is not easy, especially when people still expect an old style of leadership. And it’s even harder when you don’t know yet what the new style of leadership looks like or who you are as a leader.

The good news is you’re not alone! Join a group of like-minded leaders on a Journey to discover and develop your unique leadership potential. Gain skills and tools to build motivated, collaborative and effective teams. Lead with purpose, create real impact.




Who is it for?

The Leadership Journey is for anyone who wants to grow their skills and capacities as a leaders, regardless of whether you are working in an official leadership position.

We offer Leadership Journeys for individuals and organisations. To find out more about a program for your organisation, contact info@unityeffect.net

Our Participants

The Journey made me understand that leadership is about growth, openness, and essentially me. About me being a whole person. That’s what the leadership journey experience was for me: a deep, honest, playful look at the different aspects of leadership and thus of me. The journey as well as all participants composed a puzzle that makes sense and is a beautiful composition. You really initiate the change from within. Thank you!

Svenja Jesumann Leadership Journey Participant

The Leadership Journey provided me with a framework, tools, and space to better understand my role in, and navigate a world and society that is becoming more complex than we can comprehend. I’ve long been looking for an approach that would provide a blueprint to better understand the external factors and complex systems, while employing flexible and innovative approaches that harvest the full human potential – that of myself, my team, my community and society at large. I feel that I have gained immense confidence in my ability to work with people and create positive change by empowering others. I have gained solid footing, resources and inspiration for the challenging times ahead.

Ingrid Kantarova Leadership Journey Participant

The Leadership Journey is exactly what it’s title suggests: a Journey. It is not a seminar, or a course. For me it has been a journey to a better understanding of myself and of the people surrounding me. “Next stop: complexity” – each week was like a stop in a new place, where my co-travelers and I took time to examine our surroundings and how they influence us. Emily and Clemens from Unity Effect have been in part drivers, in part guides. Their insightful comments and a well-balanced program have never once ceased to inspire, question, and astonish me. The atmosphere of trust and genuine interest has made it easy for me to share my thoughts freely with others in the group, and yielded helpful insights. The last Journey session was by no means the final stop: the journey now continues with me in the driver’s seat and other passengers or drivers drop by to contribute to it.

Dr. Yulia Kozyrakis Leadership Journey Participant

The Leadership Journey of Unity Effect was a series of 12 hyper-interactive sessions. One of the most powerful aspects was that I discovered the answers to the challenges I faced as a leader – the answers weren’t handed as theory to me. Also, the fellow participants were outstanding professionals with great experience that supported me through the journey. Now, I have not only concrete knowledge and tools that I can apply, but also a strong network around me.

Chrysa Petala Leadership Journey Participant

I’m glad that I took the chance to embark on a journey with the lovely team of Unity Effect. Seeing them act as facilitators relying on a holistic approach and grounding their support in deep experience in different flavours of leadership, I could learn a lot about myself. I’m thrilled that Unity Effect got a group of dedicated young people together that are working hard to share new skills and approaches needed for the changes that we face. Our world needs more young people like this to steer through the constant change we are going through globally.  Thanks for your heartfelt effort!

The Journey

The Leadership Journey is a 12 week facilitated online program limited for a group of up to 12 participants. Over 12 weeks we meet once a week for a 2 hour online workshop with the group, which takes place via Zoom. Our Journey Guides facilitate the workshops with a focus on experiential learning, reflection and sharing practical methods and tools. Our workshop-sessions are highly interactive – this is definitely not your typical online course!

Between the workshops there are peer-coaching sessions, as well as individual exercises and journaling to dive deeper into the weekly themes. You will also receive a workbook with practical tools and methods to apply to your team.

We offer Leadership Journeys for individuals and organisations. To find out more about a program for your organisation, contact info@unityeffect.net
