We offer 7 “deep-dive” masterclasses. The duration of the masterclass is short, 3 hours, and can be held at your office location, a remote venue or through a Zoom session.

Does your business need to change, but you do not know how? Are you wondering whether “Transformational Leadership (TL)” can help? Then we invite you to follow our mini-TL-training.

It is an excellent way to get to know some of the core elements of the full training in just 3 hours. In this very short amount of time, you get an idea what you need to do and how you can initiate powerful change.


  • How your identity and personal leadership influences the business culture;
  • How your business culture influences your business growth;
  • How you build a strong team.

You will receive the tools to implement what you have learned.


Team culture for lasting growth

Do you want lasting growth but is it hard to achieve? Is the change you desire difficult to realize? Change is challenging for most people and often leads to conflict. Is this your struggle? Then this masterclass on team culture is for you.

Discover how to create a positive team culture that enables your team to resolve conflicts and jointly realize change. This builds capacity in your team that leads to growth and continuous improvement.

Learn how to create a powerful infrastructure for change in your business:

  • Gain insight into the dynamics of change;
  • Determine the desired culture with your team and record the agreements in a team contract;
  • Implement the changes for lasting growth

The outcome is a team that supports each other, holds each other accountable and searches for growth and continuous improvement. Take part in our masterclass and discover how that works.


Personal leadership

Do you want to know which leadership qualities you need to grow your business? Then this masterclass is for you. Our saying is: “An organization cannot grow beyond its leadership”.

In this masterclass we will discuss your development as a leader. At the end you choose in which areas you want to grow. You work this out in an action plan.

Learn to look at yourself:

  • How we as people learn and think from our own unique history;
  • Why anger arises;
  • Self-identity and the role of feedback;
  • How to take responsibility for your own thinking, feelings and behavior.

Take part in our masterclass and discover how you can grow as a leader, so that your organization can grow too.


Clear and effective team communications

Is communication in your company troublesome? Do you ever wonder why you just can’t agree with each other? Are you looking for the right way of communicating within your company?

In this masterclass you will gain insight into the underlying causes and the tools to communicate well, especially in difficult situations, for example:

  • How do you talk to each other in conflict situations;
  • How do you deal with (extreme) relational and transactional people;
  • The five languages of appreciation in the workplace;
  • How a first impression works and how to fix a wrong first impression;
  • Dealing with angry people.

With 11 simple tools you teach your team how to become more powerful with clear and honest communication. You learn how to strengthen relationships and how to repair damaged relationships.


Organizational leadership

Do employees struggle to fulfill their role? Or do employees have difficulty in shaping their new position? Then they probably struggle with a lack of clarity within the business.

As a leader, you remove this ambiguity by applying the indispensable ingredients for good leadership: establishing and casting vision, jointly propagating the mission and building the team capacity to perform optimally. With the aim that every employee in his role can take responsibility and lead.

These are topics that will be discussed:

  • The goal of leadership;
  • The qualities of a good leader;
  • The indispensable ingredients for leadership;
  • Method for effective meetings;
  • Dealing with customers and other stakeholders, especially in difficult situations.

Through insight and tools you teach your employees to take responsibility and lead from their own position.


Organizational growth

Do you have employees who do not take initiative or responsibility? Do you have employees who negatively influence the culture of your business? And is the growth of your company stagnating? Then you need the 5-step method for business growth.

In this 5-step method you will work with successive organizational models. You learn how these relate to different leadership styles, from strong control to empowerment and letting go. This way you work towards a high-performing team. Fundamental decisions are necessary in this process, for example for employees who show undesirable behavior.

These are the main topics that will be covered:

  • Five organizational models, from visionary to continuous improvement;
  • The requirements for a high-performing team;
  • Building a high-performing team using the 5-step method.

 You achieve continuous improvement because every employee participates in the joint strategic direction. Then work, planning and fun go together and are automatically followed by profit and growth.


Making “leadership for business growth” lasting

Have you gone through the steps for business growth but are team members left behind who do not go along with the change? Are initiatives and plans of employees not being implemented? Do you want an enduring culture of initiation of change and leadership by every employee?

Cultural change can only take effect permanently if it is embraced and empowered by the team. To make good use of this change process, you coach your team by having each individual draw up an action plan. In this way you empower your team to take personal responsibility and become the authentic leader they want to be. Then it becomes possible that the achievement of personal goals and the achievement of organizational goals go together.

To become a good personal leader and to find your own place within the team, these are the most important keys of this masterclass:

  • Clear long-term planning;
  • Accountability to teammates;
  • Have no trouble with a certain degree of transparency.

 The result is that the team members each take their place in the business and motivate themselves to jointly stay on course.

NB: We strongly recommend that you first follow the masterclass “Organizational growth“.

What are others saying about our training?

Deep impression

Sometimes you have those training courses that leave a deep impression on you, simply because they help you to shed a light over all your business activities and to proceed from a clear vision and strategy. That was the Transformational Leadership training for me. With the right focus I can now continue to build on my new company, my team and myself.

Marije van den Berg, author, speaker and event coordinator


Transformational leadership is to put it modestly, a tremendous book and training that we apply on a daily basis, personally as well as professionally. For me it has been a revelation and I appreciate LYDIA Connect for this awesome knowledge.

Moses Kamau

Egos in the way

As a result of this TL-training, our leaders are encouraged and willing to empower others because their egos are no longer in the way.


Immediately applicable

I am very happy that I followed this TL-training! A lot of valuable information that encourages reflection and is immediately applicable in practice. With your open attitude you have started the conversations. Thanks!

Dieneke van Oostrum, Studio Open View

Highly recommended

Highly recommended for anyone who longs for healthy leadership, change and wholeness for their own organization. Tiemen and Monique, thank you for bringing this to the Netherlands. I look forward to a huge impact!

Arjan Hulsbergen, lawyer, trainer / author and transformational entrepreneur

New kind of leadership

I was blown away how total commitment to transparency combined with openness, warmth and a clear strategy makes business leadership so successful. Never before in my life did I experience this kind of leadership and I could immediately connect.

Swantje Schmid

Freed from unproductive behaviors

Our employees are freed from the behaviors that kept them from being productive.


Dealing with constraints

Once we learned to deal with constraints, we’ve been able to move through difficult situations much more effectively with little to no down time. It is now much easier to deal with tough customers and employees—and every company has them.


Making choices

TL is a different leadership training because themes such as gossip, accountability and taking responsibility as a leader are so clearly presented. In addition, it makes clear that training leaders is ‘simple’ but not easy to achieve. Subjects that are interpreted in the organization are substantiated in what it requires of you as a leader to get to that desired stage and what you do and do not want to allow in your organization. I would recommend TL because of the above and to all leaders who want and dare to make choices for the organization. Those who want to be aware of what establishing a relational culture requires and yields.

Henriette van Dort, Hamewith Talent Development

More profitable

One division which recently completed the TL-training was more profitable in one month than they did in the previous eight months prior to the training.


How to handle change

Are you a leader and do you want change for yourself or your team? And you don’t know how to handle this? I would say: participate in this training. It will really help you further!

Annemieke van Hulsbergen, Pensioenfonds Metaal en Techniek

50% growth

Our company has seen a 50% growth in revenue solely due to the TL-training and employees being more productive and enjoying their professional lives as well as their personal lives.
