We Make 21st Century Skills Training Worth Your While

We develop and deliver our 21st century skills training programmes and workshop concepts with the award-winning 2CG® method. The multi-method approach is practice proven and grounded in social learning theory, polyphonic storytelling, and co-creation processes in communities of practice (CoP). Our customers particularly enjoy and benefit from the inspirational artistic input that we use to make leaders as well as their teams and individuals future-fit. Our learning experiences help them to understand complex issues, (re-)define their purpose, and explore new ways of thinking and doing. Most importantly, we measure progress through change effected in the real world.

Our Stories

We believe that the real driving force behind successful transformation in the era of digitalisation is the way we re-think, re-imagine, and re-organise our work and collaboration at micro level. Leaders are challenged to make sure that their organisations and businesses are able to 1.) disrupt themselves through innovation (and thus avoid being disrupted by others) and to 2.) ensure that relevant implementation processes are in place. Find a few stories of our numerous successfully implemented projects below.
