The Recess College offers programmes that stand out by making you experience when you are effective – and when you are not. 

And by making you recognise (in)effectiveness in others. This experience has a lasting effect. And will enable you to take authority over your personal life at home and in the boardroom – in a way that is both alive and adult.

Our programmes are responsive to your current needs in the context of your work, team, and personal relationships. Participants learn very different elements of leadership – namely what is relevant for them now to make the next step.
