80% of people who join a gym quit within the first 5 months. With a Palæstra in-house leadership & organizational development practice, ongoing rhythms keep you "on the mat" week-to-week. By building the coaching competency of the team itself, we assure that everyday business challenges become the "mat space" for a dynamic process of action learning, performance improvement & organizational change. Beyond extrinsic bonuses & benefits, it is intrinsic motivation – fueled by shared growth towards mastery – that drives engagement, heightened productivity, and operational excellence at work. In today's competitive landscape, being a great place to work is just table stakes - we help your company become a great place to grow.

Leaders Go First.

Without a systemic change in organization and culture even participants who graduate from long-term leadership trainings or university programs are left to return to the same workplace dynamics only to fall back into old habits. Palæstra's "Split HR" approach assures that development plays a permanent and strategic role in the organization – starting with leadership.
