About SkillfulMeans Lab
SkillfulMeans Lab, based in Zurich, Switzerland is founded by Emil Ansarov. He developed the Skillful Means leadership program as a response to his 25 years of experience as a management and IT consultant leading global transformation projects and working closely with global leaders from different industries, functions and geographies. Time and again, he found that what made these initiatives successful were the people leading them.
The best leaders he has worked with shared common traits. They inspired people naturally, and they did so because they were inspired themselves. They were kind and respectful even in their firmness. They kept their cool under pressure, did not react habitually, but responded to jarring situations in creative ways, from an inner place of calm. Always unassuming, they genuinely cared for the people and that made the difference.
How can other leaders develop these qualities? Skillful Means Lab leadership programs are there to help leaders increase performance while creating positive work experience where everyone.
