What are the skills we will work on during this leadership program?

Based on the latest research (e.g. Google, HBR) we have defined 10 key behaviors that make for effective leadership in tech. We will address these skills in our leadership program:

  • Giving autonomy and resisting the urge to micromanage.
  • Supporting growth and guiding career development.
  • Sharing relevant information in a structured way.
  • Listening to team members and value their perspectives.
  • Using your expertise in a constructive way.
  • Prioritizing tasks and making the right decisions.
  • Giving recognition in an explicit way.
  • Being open-minded and supportive of people’s needs.
  • Giving actionable feedback.

The 10 behaviors form the acronym AGILE PROOF.

How does this personalized leadership program work?

  • Before the start of the program we conduct self-assessments on 10 key skills for effective leaders in tech.  (link to article)
  • Based on the results of this analysis, we design a custom-fit program.
  • During four 2-hour sessions, we work on those leadership skills that are important improvement points for the leaders in the program.
  • The four sessions are organized in a time period of approximately 2 months.
  • Immediately after the first session, participants start applying the new insights.
  • Within the sessions, participants sharewhat they applied and receive guidance and feedback on their progress.
  • Learning methods are adjusted to the learning styles of participants.

It has been a pleasure to collaborate with Yellow. They have been able to adjust the content of the sessions to our needs and have worked at all times to be aligned with the objectives we had set for this training, continuously taking care to know and understand our needs.

The feedback received from the participants has been positive. Action plans have been set up between sessions to apply what they have learned on a day-to-day basis and then share results / experiences in the following sessions. With Yellow our team improved their leadership skills through advice and different dynamics, both theoretical and practical. This support will undoubtedly allow our team to continue growing as professionals and as leaders.

Why a special leadership program for leaders in tech?

Teams in tech organizations differ from hierarchical teams in the way they are successful. Flexibility is key, as well as continuous improvement and innovation. This agile way of work needs leaders with an appealing vision, able to create alignment, engagement, and inspiration.

What will be the results of this program?

It is shown that, apart from the improvements on the specific development goals, other important positive results will be:

  • Better connection with the team.
  • Increased confidence regarding their leadership skills.
  • A better eye for the needs of their team members.
  • Increased self-awareness.
  • Motivation to continue learning and improving.
  • New insights regarding the psychology behind human behavior.
  • Increased empathy.
  • Community building with other team leads.
Yellow has been a fantastic support throughout the planning and execution of the leadership training for our leaders. Marianne's approach in helping me design the practical training our people needed worked fantastic for us. Our leaders are very enthusiastic with the learning outcomes and are eager to apply them on their day to day job. I will be thrilled to work together again for future training needs for our team!
Sylvana Sansone, HR Business Partner EMEA at Headway Digital, Barcelona
Yellow listened to what we were hoping to achieve with our training session, and set the gears into motion quickly to develop a custom and dedicated course to our team. They were able to effectively incorporate sections of priority, include engaging material and group activities, and support the attendees: both in a group setting and with one-on-one guidance. They ensured to recommend the appropriate amount of trainers to provide the support needed, and they exemplified professionalism, thoughtfulness, and positivity in all their interactions with our team. I would highly recommend Yellow: an agile, engaging, option to provide thorough attention to your Learning and Development training plans.

Why is this the best way to improve leadership skills?

It is investigated that developing leadership skills and gaining more self-confidence in this role, is most effective through application and learning by doing.

Our leadership program is designed to support your leaders in applying the new insights immediately, experience the results, receive personalized support in challenging situations and gain continued improvements towards their goals.

New team leads need the ability to shift from the mindset of an individual contributor to that of a leader. For them to thrive, it takes practical tools, tailored to their unique context and a step by step development.

For who is this Leadership Program?

This program is for leaders in tech who want to prepare themselves for a successful leadership role, feel more comfortable in their leadership position and learn the key leadership behaviors to support their teams towards high performance.

Leaders who join the program will get support through an impactful, customized program where they receive new tools, guidance and feedback. They will share experiences with other team leads and get inspired by what they can do for their teams.

Immediately after the first session, they can start applying the new insights and skills in their daily work.


The fee for this impactful and customized leadership program, with a maximum of 12 participants is €2.600 or up (depending on specific adjustments or needs for your organization).

The fee includes all alignment meetings, materials, and personalized email contact with participants.
VAT (21%) is not included in this fee.

Case of Albert
During the first session, Albert was not that sure about the usefulness of the program. His most important takeaway at the end of the first session was that he “had known his colleagues a bit better”. But when he started applying the tool for giving constructive feedback, he observed a positive change in his relationship with team members and noticed that they were improving their performance. Since that experience, Albert has been improving many more leadership skills and became very confident in his leadership.

Why would you start now?

Many tech companies are growing fast, almost too fast, and we have experienced that there is a tendency to start too late with the organization of leadership programs. In general, new team leads have little experience and are struggling with their role as a leader.

Don’t wait until your teams get frustrated by the lack of results.

At the end of this Leadership Program, team leads will:

  • Motivate their teams in a constructive way.
  • Know what it takes to get everyone on board.
  • Align their teams in their roles.
  • Have constructive conversations with team members. LINK TO ARTICLE LEADERSHIP SKILLS FOR CONDUCTING MOTIVATIONAL DIALOGS
  • Keep their teams on track towards the desired results.

  • Topics are chosen, based on the participant’s development needs.
  • People will apply new insights immediately after the first session.

Frequently asked questions

When does the program start?

On February 26th we will have the kick-off for the program. We will get to know each other and explain all the logistics and the way we work. The first content session will take place on March 2nd.

What is the time schedule for the program?

The 2-hour sessions will take place on Tuesday, from 18h00-20h00.
The 1-hour sessions will take place on Friday, from 16h00-17h00.

How will participants get personal support?

As we will work with a group of maximum 12 participants, team leads will have the possibility to talk about their personal experience, bring in their questions and situations, get feedback and individualized tips to work with.

What is the program for the 4 sessions?

The program is customized for every group, based on the outcome of the initial self-assessments, but we will always make sure we address the 10 key leadership behaviors for leading agile teams. In this article on our Insights Blog you will find a description of these 10 leadership principles.

What if participants already did courses on some parts of the content?

This program is about little theory and a lot of reflection, sharing and practice. Although you already have had training in some skills, you will always be able to bring your personal skills to a higher level. Nevertheless, the program is customized and this way important overlap of theory and tools can be avoided.

Will the sessions be recorded?

We don’t record the sessions. We work in an open atmosphere of sharing and practicing with the people who are present. We love to protect this personal climate.

What if people don't have a leadership position yet?

That is not a problem. This program can be an excellent way of preparing people for their new position and they will always be able to share situations from previous jobs or personal situations. It’s good that you start investing in leadership skills for future positions.

Is there a minimum hours for assistance?

No. Although we recommend participants to attend all sessions in order to follow the step by step progress and get the best out of this program.

Can we organize sessions for bigger groups?

That is possible. We recommend working with two trainers in case the group is bigger than 25 people. Although it is possible to organize a leadership program for bigger groups, the impact on personal learning goals will decrease and elements of the customized way we tend to work will be lost.
