Leadership Academy Conductors

Leadership Academy Conductors The Academy is mainly designed for recent graduates of orchestral, opera, choral, and wind band conducting. The focal point is the conductor’s development in adaptive, authentic and servant leadership. The Academy offers a lifelong learning concept, with different work forms: inter-vision, individual mentoring and coaching, masterclasses and workshops, with intensive weekends and personal advice throughout the year. After three weekends in September 2014, February and May 2015, the participants highly appraised the initiative and program. They will continue to participate. New participants can also apply to the Academy. In September 2015 the Academy is organizing a work conductorsweekend, returning to the unique and stylish Dutch resort ‘Hof van Saksen’. Alongside the program for participants, the Academy offers public performances to the guests of this resort. ‘Hof van Saksen’ and the government of the Province Drenthe support the Academy both financially, and by providing hospitality.
