Leadership Talent Academy (LTA)

We embrace change and see obstacles as opportunities. Our goal is to support you, to gain new perspectives on your way of experiencing and challenging yourself, your life, and current situations you are handling.

This program is designed to explore your full potential to scale your impact. It is about creative confidence, to empower you as a person and to become the leader you want to be - self-reflection and self-guidance are the first steps before you can enable and support others as a leader.

The Leadership Talent Academy @UnternehmerTUM LTA is a 4-month on-site program consisting of 5 workshop modules and helps aspiring leaders find their own personal, value-driven leadership style to shape organizations built on a culture of togetherness, trust, and powerful action.
