Research shows that great leadership is the foundation for great results and high employee retainment. In addition, it is a well-known fact that employees leave leaders, not companies. At JS, we want highly skilled leaders who develop highly competent employees and long-lasting relations. For that reason, we invest a considerable amount of resources in training our leaders to use our well-proven leadership tools to develop their colleagues.
On February 20-22, 2017, the leadership trainers from all our offices across Europe met for the annual international Train-the-Trainer seminar. The event took place at the JS Academy in JS World Media in Aarhus, Denmark. The purpose was to share knowledge and train the use of new leadership-training material and exercises.
This year, the tightly packed seminar program was spiced up with a cultural event. As Aarhus is the European capital of culture 2017, our program offered a "culture walk" that showed the leadership trainers what our beautiful city has to offer. Our very own JS old-timer and Country Manager of JS España, Lars Qaddoum, supplemented the culture walk with entertaining and interesting information about the company history of JS, which began in Aarhus almost 25 years ago.
It was a pleasure to work with a group of positive, hardworking and extremely committed leadership trainers who are now ready to bring the leaders in their offices to the next leadership level.
