I had the opportunity to attend one of Mr. Leo Kerklaans' Strategic Leadership classes at Maastricht School of Management. It has truly been one of the most effective courses I completed within one week time frame. Leo really challenged our group to think outside of the box. For me, the part about key metrics, was so valuable because it gave me more concrete skills, to measure progress or impact within my organization. Also the strategic toolbox was very useful for my organization.
