The Conspirational Program
Entrepreneurial Skills for Leaders and Developers

Release your Instincts, Achieve your Ambitions, Expand your Life

This breakthrough eight day behavioral training and coaching program is specifically tailored for internal and external entrepreneurs and leaders.  It is designed to accompany them over a year’s period of time while they focus on releasing their potentials and instincts to achieve their ambitions and successfully expand their personal and professional lives.

Entrepreneurial Skills for Leaders

Being an entrepreneur is developing an ambitious colletive professional project which will create original value for society.

Entrepreneurship is the art of leading a dynamic professional environment within which you, your partners and your employees can:

take initiatives and responsibilities, feel empowered enough to take measured personal and professional risks, learn and grow, develop autonomy, experiment new performance solutions, and generally increase organizational value by focusing on achieving extraordinary value and results.

Entrepreneurship also rests on a number of specific skills to :

offer unprecedented products or services, develop lasting partnerships, manage time effectively, increase reactivity to market variations, lead an effective and durable work environment, develop responsibility, permit  people-development, provide lasting quality, consolidate individual and collective engagement and motivatio, strengthen company culture, ensure client fidelity, control costs, etc.  

These lists are long. 

Effective entrepreneurship, however is not just about tasks but principally a way of being. Being an entrepeneur rests on specific leadership values and beliefs, frames of reference, thinking and feeling patterns, etc.  These determine behavioral patterns which lead to results. Simply stated, entrepreneurship is not just a job but principally a way of life.

The Metasysteme Coaching “Conspirational Program” provides a learning and development environment within which participants can first develop their personal entrepreneurial   profile awareness and then learn activate the needed achievement-oriented competencies.

Each of the four consecutive workshops of the Conspirational Program is focused on one specific dimension of entrepreneurship.  These workshops are all intensely participative and focused on providing both collective learning and personalized coaching within a  dynamic developemental environment.

Personal Focus

The first workshop is focused on developing your entrepreneurial identity or way of being.  It is taylored to accompany each participant as they evaluate and come to grips with their personal success patterns and limits, professional life beliefs, motivational and behavioral patterns, key ambition. time management patterns, ethics and values, etc.  Participants will also have the opportunity to intensively focus on the essential value and meaning of their entrepreneurial projects and ventures.

Performance Interfacing

No-one is an island.  Professionnal results are a direct consequence of a leader's or entrepreneur's capacity to create solid one-on-one relationships with officials,  employees, partners, suppliers, and  competitors. This second workshop provides a learning environment focused on the acquisition of  key skills for entrepreneurs to choose the right partners for the right reasons, develop powerful success-oriented relationships and negociate solid and sustainable agreements.     Learning will include intense practice of essential results-oriented communication skills.

Team Development

Successful entrepreneurship is knowing how to transform an intimately personal vision and ambition into a performing collective organization.  Designing and accompanying effective teams is a key condition to achieve extraordinary success.  This workshop is focused on the acquisition of tools and skills to develop the high performance teams within which all members can personally engage their motivation and competencies ito achieve extraordianry collective results.

Strategic Awareness

Ultimately, entrepreuneurial performance rests on an instinctive capacity to be aware of the bigger picture, be part of extended external networks, be one with the larger environment.  This fourth workshop is focused on providing leaders with practical strategic thinking and Systems Analysis tools to provide them with a practical form and performing options to effectively  use their instinctive perceptions within global complexity.

FOR WHOM:   This program concerns all existing and potential entrepreneurial leaders who wish to

  • learn how to better use and deploy their personal potential and
  • acquire performing strategies and tools to realize one or more ambitious projects. 

Ideally, participants in this workshop are all key developers of new and original ventures within which they wish to apply their learning during the program intercessions.

To enhance practical applications and on the job follow-up between sessions, we strongly recommend grouped enrollment of active partners whenever these are developing joint ventures.

PROCESS:   This action oritneted developement program for entrepreneurs and leaders consists of four two-day workshops for a total of eight days spread over a year’s period of time.  Again, the structure of this program constitutes a relatively complete learning environment focused both on creating new personal awareness and delivering behavioural proficiency in key skills and strategies. 

The program is delivered in English, with numerous practical exercises which can be worked in Romanian sub-groups. It is proposed as a medium-term learning process with intensive on-the-job homework and practice between the sessions within learning groups and with (optional) individual coaching (for an extra fee).

Again, the program is conceived both as

  • a transformational experience led by experienced coaches and as
  • a practical collective behavioural training environment focused on acquiring skills or know-how.

The participants will be asked to work on their real-life situations, and will be expected to implement their learning within their professional environments to ensure the success of their professional projects and ventures.
