Human skills will be in higher demand across industries. Human skills are personal competences that require a mind-body-heart connection and describe a wide range of characteristics relevant to collaborate effectively and harmoniously in teams, leading responsibly and being self-aware.

BeyondU is the name of the personal growth program for entrepreneurs and for top performers in corporates and science. The six pillars in the humanity wheel develop human skills as foundation tools for future-ready leaders.

Attendees participate in blended educational experiences in order to achieve a better understanding of their purpose, share their true identity with the world, understand the impact of values and beliefs , boost emotional intelligence, experiment with new leadership behavior and demonstrate moral courage.

The European Commission evaluated BeyondU as ‘innovative and outstanding’.
