Training for organizations

Team development and meaningful action

As an employer, you believe that the personal-professional development of your people leads to better results.

Whether it's practicing communication styles, training empathy towards clients or developing a broad vision of work & identity together with your team: Bildung helps your people and organization achieve goals effectively.

Getting started with development

Depending on the development issues within your organization, we focus the training on themes such as meaning and work, personal leadership and empathic communication. Questions we can help your organization with are, for example:

  • How do you allow ownership of responsibility to emerge within a team?
  • What are the difficult ethical issues in our work and how do we deal with them?
  • How do we increase empathy toward challenges and the customer's situation?

Frequently Asked Questions

Which training is the best fit for my organizational issue?

In consultation, we identify issues and challenges that are pressing in your organization and determine what training or training sessions to offer for your team.

What is the cost of training?

Depending on the type of training a training costs between 1000,- and 1950,- euro excluding VAT. If you purchase more than one training it is possible to get a discount.

Where do training sessions take place?

Training can always take place in-company, i.e. at your organization's location. If you wish to choose your own location outside your workplace, we will be happy to visit you there as well. If this is not possible or not desirable, we always have our own beautiful, central location at the Prins Hendrikkade in Amsterdam. If desired, online is also possible.

What is Bildung?

Bildung is actively, consciously, and ethically relating to your inner self, others, and the world. It represents the ideal that people develop themselves as broadly and fully as possible and take on social responsibility.

We have been inspired by the ideas of classic bildungsdenkers such as Wilhelm von Humboldt (1767 - 1835) and Theodor Adorno (1903-1969), but also by contemporary thinkers such as Gert Biesta, Martha Nussbaum and Roman Krznaric.

Can I combine training with coaching?

This is indeed quite possible. This allows lessons learned from the trainings to land well in the functioning of your professionals.

What is the duration of a training course?

Trainings last between 2 and 3.5 hours. This can be arranged by mutual agreement.

What happens after the collaboration?

We invite organizations with whom we collaborate to The Bildung Network. A collective of people and organizations with the will to be socially responsible in connection with themselves and others. Together we build the university of the 21st century: representing the ideal of education, learning & development.

The Bildung Network means for your organization, among other things: 

  • New talent: build relationships with future employees, trainers or coaches
  • Visibility: be visible within our talent pool and business network
  • Positioning: strengthen your positioning in terms of social engagement and personal development.
  • Business network: exchange best practices, build coalitions, and leverage related opportunities

What is The Bildung Academy?

De Bildung Academie develops programs and offers training, coaching and consulting around personal-professional development and social responsibility. 

In our ideal world, we bring as many people as possible into contact with themselves and connect them with others. As a collective, they tackle personal and societal challenges.

That is why we are building the university of the 21st century. We do this together with The Bildung Network: a community consisting of new generations of students and (young) professionals, teachers, artists, scientists and organizations within the public sector, education and sustainable business.
