Executive Education


by Kohlrieser Leadership Institute

Transitions are what we encounter at relevant turning points in our lives.

  • Are you entering a period of transition in your life, a turning point, an opportunity to pause and change direction?
  • Are you moving from education to work, moving company, country or considering new pathways or roles?
  • Have you experienced a significant loss? Loss of a significant person, a role, a hope or dream or health?
  • Have you lost the meaning and purpose in your work or in your life?

In this workshop you will explore how these transitions set the stage for the next phase of your life.

Please note that this program is run by Kohlrieser Leadership Institute (KLI) and not GBS. Should you be interested in similar programs by KLI, check out the Kohlrieser Leadership Program in German!


Finding new adventures through a transition is a critical element in your success as you write the next chapters in your life. How can you make the best choices for yourself and those around you?  What are your opportunities? What are the risks for the new adventures?

As part of “New Adventures in Leadership”, we create the space for you to explore new ideas, to reflect and exchange with others. We invite you to look back at your life, take time to think, feel, acknowledge, review and to start to imagine and design what is next for you.
The program is designed and led by best-selling author and Distinguished Professor of Leadership, George Kohlrieser.  George is an organizational and clinical psychologist as well as a hostage negotiator with over 50 years of experience. New Adventures gives a unique opportunity for you to work with George and his skilled team of coaches in a small group environment and in the inspirational setting of the Swiss Alps.
