Accelerate Your Leadership 

Our world is rapidly reshaping in many amazing ways. In this evolving new reality, successful leadership will have a very different nature than traditional approaches. It was quite different to be a leader in simpler economic times and when the world moved at a slower pace with less connectivity. Patterns of entitlement offered at least the illusion of security, and there was more time and predictability in producing results. 

Now at a time when previous business models and assumptions have been turned on their heads, people’s livelihoods are changing and disappearing regularly, and successful businesses are being transformed for the new realities - the leadership required is radically agile, proactive, and creative. As we go forward, those who lead will be the ones taking advantage of the creativity and productivity gains available by focusing on the human, collaborative dimension, while the rest will suffer in the face of unrelenting change.


2130'S PROGRAM Productive Interactions is the result of more than 20 years working “in the trenches” with business leaders and their teams helping them to identify and solve the real issues they face every day. The most challenging issues are often the ones “in the human dimension” – meaning how to get individuals and teams communicating effectively and efficiently to create results. The skills and capacities you will develop in Productive Interactions will increase your effectiveness and ability to work successfully with others immediately.

In 2010 their work in the field of leadership expanded to China where he participated in the launch of The World Academy for the Future of Women at the SIAS International University.
