Leadership & Values is a text-based retreat seminar that is a part of an exceptional program promoting values-based leadership. Hidden away from the demands of the daily routine and in a small group of accomplished leaders, the seminar offers the space to reflect on timeless ideas, values and their continued relevance in today’s world. We encourage dialogue and critical discussion on challenging political and social topics as well as what it means to lead responsibly in the context of Central Europe.

 Based on readings from classical and modern texts of renowned philosophers and thinkers, a small group of outstanding participants is invited to a moderated dialogue about fundamental aspects of human existence, including the role of the individual, societal order, and the limits of power. 

The seminar offers an opportunity to explore tensions between ideas and goods competing in a globalizing world, to discover how our choices and decisions are shaped and to realize that one cannot lead others without leading himself or herself first.
