They will share key strategies for effective leadership in the context of terror threats, and other severely volatile and uncertain conditions.
  2. CEO Video Cantatas—Intimate Portrayals of CEOs in Action:  Lessons from CEO Videographer Artist Marina Landia. Landia has gained acclaim for her intimate video interviews with CEO’s. She will offer a unique window into her work by interviewing CEO’s as they share their personal journey, leadership challenges and vision. Preview here.

June 11

  1. Olympic Listening Under Fire:  As coaches who operate in the C-suite we need to “listen at an Olympic level” –moving clients to change when the stakes are high and time is of the essence. In this session, we explore multiple approaches to high speed coaching/consultation including: seizing the moment; somatic listening; and, listening across cultures, generations and geography.  Using CEO case-studies facilitators Carol Kauffman, Andreas Bernhardt and Jeffrey Hull will endeavor to “up our games” in the art of per formative listening…and coaching CEO’s and other high-velocity leaders.
  2. Stepping up Together: Observing Leadership in Real Time What do you see other’s don’t? What do they see you don’t?  How does our personal response to others – through listening, sensing and, most of all, seeing, impact how we show up as coaches and leaders? Do we see things the same way? Or not? Together we will explore the transferential dynamic between coach and client – with a “fieldtrip” to the Alte National Gallerie of art in Berlin, where we break into small groups to see, listen and experience portraits of leaders.  We will then explore with each other how to identify and leverage our unique perceptive abilities, our capacities for interpretation, judgment and intuition – putting these tools into action to spur transformation in our clients.


Friday & Saturday: All sessions are 3 hours long and include time for lengthy Q& A and intimate discussion groups.
