Personal and group leadership workshop in Rijeka

“The workshop helped me realise what are my potentials as a leader and what I do wrong in sharing responsibilities in my organisation”

At Trans Europe Halles, we are sure that leadership starts with yourself. Listening to your inner-self is crucial to being a good leader. Listening to others is even more important. We learn from our differences. They bring a broader vision and build deeper trust among people.

This workshop is a meeting point for like-minded leaders from the cultural sector. Together we will explore old themes through a new lens. The training won’t focus on the management side of leadership. Instead, it puts emphasis on the personality of a leader and its potential to inspire others.


Arts and cultural professionals willing to develop their leadership skills.
Leaders who believe that empathy and courage are essential in dealing with others.


  1. To stay present and confident in the face of change
  2. Better understand your reactive patterns and prejudices
  3. To synchronise your body’s energy with your thoughts
  4. To deal with the paradox and tension between the opposites
  5. To stay creative and confident even under pressure
  6. To voice your opinion with power, clarity and without aggression
  7. To recover balance in the face of doubts and external challenges


Each day has a pattern and consists of two sessions.
Wellbeing, presence and reflection are the core elements that frame daily experience.
