#sogehthybrid is the title of the training program developed by Manuela König and trainer Eva-Maria Kraus. It takes SWAN executives on a learning journey throughout. This should enable SWAN to successfully establish a modern, strengths-focused and active leadership culture in the change management of the future working world. The focus of the 3-stage training concept: combining the possibilities and advantages of all working and learning worlds in order to be able to meet the changed leadership requirements. This approach convinced the BDVT e.V. jury. SWAN was able to take first place in the “Hybrid/Blended Training” category in the race for the prestigious “European Training Award”.

European Training Award

The Professional Association for Training, Consulting and Coaching (BDVT e.V.) has been awarding the “European Training Prize” since 1992. It serves as a guide and trend-setter for methodology and effectiveness in continuing education from New Work to New Learning. “We are very happy to receive a great first prize for an exceptional training,” Manuela König said enthusiastically. “This project was a great challenge for me, and once again I was able to grow a bit from it.”

Living values, agility and new work

SWAN Managing Director Alexander Bernhard is also very satisfied: “The award proves that we hit the nerve of the time with our 3-stage hybrid training concept. The reflective methodology is 100 percent in line with our corporate culture.” Confidence in one’s own abilities, team spirit, enthusiasm, responsibility – but also innovative strength and agility – are what make SWAN stand out. Flat hierarchies, self-responsibility and independent work also contribute to this. “We do not want to stand still. We want our employees to grow and develop with their tasks. This applies equally to managers and young professionals,” adds Alexander Bernhard.
