The Kollner Academy

The Kollner Academy helps leaders develop the strategic thinking and self-awareness necessary to lead in today's world

Today more than ever, we need business leaders to be missionaries instead of mercenaries. The world demands leaders who are authentically in touch with our humanity and in pursuit of bettering the world. Some may say this is not a role for business. We believe that business is, in fact, our best chance at evolving society.

The Kollner Academy offers education, training and support to help leaders develop the strategic thinking and self-awareness necessary to become true leaders in today's world. Our programs offer hands-on support to apply the leadership principles directly to one's life and organization.

Our Programs

Our programs develop mastery in the key areas of conscious leadership.


How to Think Strategically

Strategic thinking is essential for innovation and business longevity. Everyone wants to be a strategic leader but few understand the language of strategy and the often hidden challenges that cause strategy work to fail. Inspired by integral and regenerative approaches, this experience based program provides leaders with the opportunity for deep insight into your individual and organizational conditions that provide obstacles for strategic thinking and innovation.


Strategy Development

This program introduces business strategy to enable you as a leader to master the language of strategy, hold the full integral view of the business, and clarify and craft a comprehensive business unit plan.


The Basics of Self-Mastery

Based on the book, The Practice of Self-Management, this experiential program provides the basic building blocks to gain deeper self-awareness such that you understand your own personal reactivity and expand your capacity to be present and compassionate with yourself and others.

Use Kollner Group if you need experts in strategy and organization development. I highly recommend their talent and integrity.

Soren's executive guidance and advice have been invaluable to and me personally over the past years. He has a remarkable ability to step into difficult situations as well as step up to take on interim leadership in critical areas of the organization. As an example, he oversaw one of the most successful acquisitions and integrations that I have ever seen. I couldn't have done it without him!
