Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much! Nowhere is this wisdom more visible and valuable than in business. No matter how great the leader or the idea or the money supporting it, no business will prosper in the absence of a strong team.

This course is part of the longer Effective Manager Programme, however, it is also available for purchase and completion as a separate programme.



As we build our professional careers, we often grow from experts to managers and leaders. In this journey many /but not all/ will not have any formal management or leadership trainings – a sorry fact that multiplies many challenges, prevents successful collaboration and ultimately slows down professional careers.



Peter Zashev is an academic, business trainer and high-energy speaker on leadership, change and strategy. Peter has 18 years of executive education experience working with the management of big companies across Europe and mainly in the Nordic countries, the Baltic States and Russia.
