Develop your leadership!

Know what your unique leadership is!

The best leaders know themselves and understand the importance of personal development.

You have inherited your unique personality and talents. And with that you have your own unique and authentic form of leadership.

By better seeing, feeling and experiencing who you are, you can better see, feel and experience what you mean to others and what others mean to you.

That gives perspective on a more powerful interpretation of your own and authentic leadership.
The closer you stay to yourself, the stronger your leadership. That is why leadership development is always personal development. And that is why we call leaders whom we see as successful as authentic.

uātes the art of leadership

Leadership. The ability to bind people. To give people direction. To give people perspective. To make people feel heard and seen. To make people part of something bigger than themselves. To let people form a community together. To provide people with security in their existence. To offer people the space and support to develop.

This is important in people's life and work. That is already difficult in the formal relationship between people and organisation. But in social reality, where we shape relationships through communication and interaction, this is much more difficult. Our individual perspective and the collective perspective determine what we think and feel when it comes to our position and our meaning.

The space for people to develop and develop is decisive for the success of an organization. Those organizations that manage to achieve this achieve the best results. Have the healthiest employees. The highest productivity. The lowest absenteeism. Less turnover, and a greater attraction to potential employees.

Your leadership is decisive in getting this done. And your leadership is at its most powerful when you know and feel what "your" leadership is. And how you can really use your leadership.

Make your leadership a reality. Use your personal talent to shape your future. Make your dreams come true. Grow beyond your own limitations and become the leader you already are deep down. Unlock your unique potential and experience what energy and flow give you in your life. Let boundaries fade and develop yourself into something you didn't think possible.
The key to human happiness and fulfillment lies in the ability to develop into a complete and wise human being. We don't do this alone. We do this in relation to the people around us. Our development therefore has meaning for others. And are experienced as meaningful and decisive for their own development.

This leadership is the core of leadership as we call it and experience it with our neighbors, in our work and in society. Slow and invisible or fast and disruptive. Developments in technology, economy, society and ecology produce fear, anger and sadness in people.

To deal with this, we need new perspectives and choices to survive in the short and long term. Leadership is indispensable for this. Because leadership takes responsibility for interpreting the dynamics and complexity, providing or developing perspectives, and encouraging people to make the right choices.

Leadership as a role in the changes in large “systems”. And leadership as the ability to develop and develop into a complete and wise human being are essentially the same. Everything is in motion.
(Self)examination is central to uates. Your leadership in relation to your change and development task. That's what we're going to get started with. Together with the other participants who will work on their own leadership issues. We learn from each other by sharing, questioning and developing new insights together. Insights that we will try out in practice. To experience what works and what doesn't. What is or isn't important.
We see Uates as a space in which people, together with others, search for their own qualities and effectiveness in their personal and professional context.

A space in which wisdom is gathered and action perspectives are developed through mutual research and in-depth dialogue.

Insights that help you to get closer to yourself, to be more empowered and ultimately to be and become the leader you really are.

That means you don't go on a course where someone tells you what you need to know. That means you don't sit around listening to people who have already done it all. But that means that you go on a journey with others using all your own knowledge and experience. And we would like you to take all your knowledge and experience with you for yourself and for your travel companions.

As uates, it is our challenge to offer you a travel route for a travel group. A journey that makes it possible to work intensively and in depth on who you are, what you think and how you look. And how this all comes together when we look at it from a leadership perspective. A process in which we also contribute knowledge and experience. So that we ensure that it is really about something and that it really brings you something.
Do not teach, but learn yourself. In-depth, focused on the essence of your leadership. That's what we stand for. That means that with your knowledge and experience you mean just as much to others as others do to you. That means that your input is just as valuable as the input of others. That means your learning inspires others, just as others will inspire you. And based on our knowledge and experience with leadership, we go a step further. So that together we can go beyond our own limits. In an area that we didn't know existed beforehand.
Uates is a network of experienced and driven people who share a passion for people and leadership. People with a wide variety of knowledge, background and experience.

People who like to engage in an in-depth and meaningful conversation about leadership development. Leadership at the individual level, leadership in groups and teams, and leadership in organizations and society.

To translate this together into new perspectives on leadership for people, teams and the organization. Perspectives that not only provide beautiful reflections, but also lead to an alternative repertoire of actions in people's leadership.

This is based on one's own strength and the talent that is released and deployed. So that energy is created to shape your leadership and to assume your role and position.

So that eventually a stream of developments will start. Developments that enable you and your organization to deal with the dynamics and complexity of our environment. And to take control of those developments.
Leadership is hot. There is nowhere more management literature than leadership. Apparently it's important. There are bookcases full of "how to do it" books that tell you how to be or become a good leader. But anyone involved in leadership (and who isn't) knows it's not that simple. It is elusive, difficult to define, and open to multiple interpretations. And at the same time, we all know what it means. Time to decide for yourself what leadership means to you. And how you shape that in your own way. From your strength and potential.
