Maciej Herman

Managing Director

ICAN Institute's team supported us in carrying out our organizational culture transformation. Today we cooperate more effectively with each other and are not afraid of change. We are also much more responsive to customer needs. For me personally, ICAN helped to develop my managerial skills. Among other things, thanks to it I climbed the career ladder, eventually becoming the company's president. Now I am the one who shares my knowledge and practical experience during leadership training.

Zuzanna Piasecka

Director HR Department

ICAN Institute conducted an organizational culture survey project for us. During the project, ICAN Institute also provided BGK with the functioning of a knowledge portal, bringing together information useful during the cultural transformation. All activities were directed at implementing a new communication strategy in the institution. The project was carried out professionally with the highest industry standards.

Pratt & Whitney Kalisz Sp. z o.o.

Jacek Kwiecinski

Human Resources Director, Board Member

Over 16 years, we have benefited from a number of programs - closed programs, prepared specifically for our company's needs, and open ones (e.g. First-Time Manager™, Management™, Strategic Leadership Academy™). Thanks to access to the latest global knowledge and contacts with experts representing different points of view, our managers have gained valuable knowledge in innovation management and managing in an ever-changing reality. This has allowed us to build an agile and flexible company, as well as prepare for future challenges.

Habasit Poland Sp. z o.o.

Grzegorz Rutkowski

General Manager

Participation in Management was a time of self-reflection for me, thanks to which I learned where I was in my professional life and what I could change in it. The class gave me the impetus to make changes - we defined the strategy for the next few years, changed sales structures, processes for achieving goals, focused on lean management, a culture of engagement and employee satisfaction. We made changes faster, without unnecessary mistakes, and last year's decisions are bearing fruit today. We ended the year with a really good financial result.

Unity Group

Grzegorz Kuczynski

CEO

The Strategic Leadership Academy™ showed us which areas of strategic management are our strengths and which need to be developed. E.g., the concept of ambidextrous organization helped us to deploy investments for sustaining innovations (in areas that are traditional for us, such as building e-commerce solutions, integrating systems or digitizing processes) and to start investments that have breakthrough potential (e.g., the machine learning start-up UPSAILY). Once the various solutions are implemented, the entire company benefits from the program.

NextApps

Michal Olczak

CEO

Management™ far exceeds the standards familiar to me from my master's and doctoral studies. After each class, my team and I implemented the solutions we learned. I gained a new strategic perspective. We introduced a more measured and agile approach to management, using the OKR method, cashflow analysis, EBITDA and sustainable marketing, among others. We have optimized priority projects and ways to finance them. I constantly return to the class materials to inspire the team to expand their knowledge.

Aplitt sp. z o.o

Marek Litzbarski

Vice President

Each of the 10 sessions of the Strategic Leadership Academy™ program carried valuable and useful content, and the meetings addressed our needs and pain points. Immediately after the training, we adopted at Aplitt the multi-stakeholder platforms learned in the sessions, the lean startup method, and the innovation culture, all of which are producing noticeable results. It is important that entire Boards of Directors participate in this training. The knowledge gained together definitely strengthens understanding and facilitates decision-making related to building a company's growth path.

SPLAST

Marek Sanocki

Vice President

I have been working with ICAN Institute for many years and have participated in several editions of annual programs. Each time it was a strong support in the process of management and personal development. During the ICAN Neuroleadership Academy™ I learned new management techniques and ways to solve problems, achieve goals, communicate or deal with myself as a leader: my emotions, mechanisms of action and thinking. Certainly, this knowledge will translate into my personal development, as well as that of the whole team.

One team, one goal, or how to improve cooperation in an organization - a case study

Carrying out necessary changes in a company is a challenge for many organizations, regardless of industry. We were approached with such a problem by a company with employees from different cultures and countries.

Frequently asked questions

This question requires a thorough diagnosis of the problems present in your career or company. What area are your challenges? What attempts at solutions have already been tested? What are the barriers to development? To accurately diagnose your development needs, contact our consultant.
Even after the first training sessions. For example, at the first workshop of the Strategic Leadership Academy™ program, participants (CEOs and board members) were tasked with "creating" a competitor to beat them in the market. They then considered what their corporate resources could reduce the rival's clout. The 2-day workshop gave participants a bird's-eye view of their organization and built a strategic foundation for which there was previously no time due to the daily hustle and bustle.
That's great! By meeting people from a competing company, we can see what problems they have and how they deal with them. Such information cannot be obtained from any other source. This intermingling of industries, both competitive and completely unrelated, allows us to generate unique ideas.
It depends on whether the problem is disclosed or not. Often participants think that certain problems present in the company are due to causes beyond their control, while in fact they may be the result of their own managerial mistakes, a competence gap or the use of outdated management methods, etc. Even if the problem is not solved right away, it will certainly be diagnosed correctly. Together we will find the right ways and tools to solve it.
Of course. This need is met by our Alumni Club, where trainees can benefit from each other's knowledge and experience. In addition to this, each graduate receives personalized content from ICAN, so that they always have at hand the articles, reports and analyses that are most interesting to them. What's more, trainees have repeatedly created their own groups on LinkedIn or Whatsapp to extend networking beyond the training room.
Time is one of the most obvious constraints on our participants. That's why programs most often take place every 2 weeks or once a month. This allows you to catch your breath in learning, reflect on your career and company, and systematize the knowledge you have gained and start implementing it in your company to share the results at the next session.

We issue an invoice on the first day of training. This allows the company to quickly include the training in its costs. Payment by installments is possible. There is also the possibility of obtaining funding from the National Training Fund, for which we help prepare applications.
For each training course you receive a guarantee that allows you to cancel after 1 session or 2 sessions (depending on the program) and receive a 100% refund. You can also change to another program that is more suited to your needs.
Yes, depending on your individual needs, you can purchase individual training sessions.

When considering the choice of training for managers and executives, it is worth first determining what competencies they need to develop. Will it be soft competencies, such as communication, motivation, feedback, mental toughness of a leader, or hard competencies, related to knowledge of specific management methods, goal setting, employee evaluation or basics of financial and economic analysis. Therefore, in order to choose the best training for an employee, it is necessary to take into account the employee's position, experience, career stage, responsibilities and business objectives to be achieved.

It is worth choosing certified training, which ends with the manager obtaining a document confirming the acquisition of knowledge and competence. The certificate is a guarantee for the company that the training is characterized by high quality and level of content, and for the employee it is a valuable element to add to his CV and a tool that builds his image as an expert in his field.
