Do you want to systematically further develop your skills and become part of the REWE Group international network? If so, our “Future Journey” development program is a particularly good fit. Future Journey takes you on a trip to the topics of leadership and innovation.
The three-module program offers training in the areas of “Leadership” and “Innovation.” You will reflect on your current leadership practice against the backdrop of the changed requirements of Work 4.0. The increasing digital transformation, higher competitive pressure and swift succession of new trends are shaping our work environment and presenting you, as managers, with new and exciting challenges. This program shows what the leadership of tomorrow – in flat hierarchies and changing network structures – will look like. Your familiar leadership tools will then be reinterpreted and given practical application.
In addition, on the Future Journey you will experience innovation in tangible ways and learn how to use the appropriate methods and tools. A wide range of inspiration by people and places, as well as focused work on selected business cases, will allow you to develop innovative solutions and prototypes yourself. A structured and agile methodological approach is used to generate ideas for products, services and processes.
During the intensive Future Journey, you will gain new knowledge about leadership and innovation, actively engage with content and methods, and prepare to transfer what you learn into your daily work. The diverse, interdisciplinary and international makeup of the group participants offers you an optimal platform for active networking.
The Future Journey supports you as you independently and proactively advance your own development.
Cost per participant: €5,350 plus travel and lodging
Workshop language: The Future Journey is a groupwide program with the aim of international networking. The workshops are mostly held in English.
