Programme structure

Transformation occurs layer by layer. That's why we give you lifetime access. You can retake the programme for free every year as long as it exists. 


The first module, “Leading in Complexity” explores change through the lens of human systems dynamics, polarity management, complexity models and resilience.

The second module, “Systemic Change” dives into decision-making, team dynamics, systems dynamics, intercultural competence and innovation.

The third module, “Authentic Leadership” works at the individual level, enabling us to be human beings rather than human doings. We  look at adaptive leadership, neuroagility, values and needs with the aim to embody “Use of Self”, i.e. the ability to purposefully make use of one’s presence and personality as instrument for change.


School of Change is structured in 3 modules that can be taken as a learning suite or on a stand-alone basis.

The programme is in English, 100% online and includes weekly insight lectures by faculty (2 hours), small group coaching practice (2 hours) with individual feedback and 10 hours of mentor coaching. Time commitment is ca. 5 hours per week. 

We adhere to the stringent professional coaching standards and ethics of the International Coaching Federation, so that School of Change graduates (all modules 1+2+3) can apply for ICF certified coach status upon completion of the programme.


Leading experts in change management, organisational design and Professional Certified Coaches from the International Coaching Federation Lise Bruynooghe and Mathilde Poirieux.

The School of Change is the go-to programme for change makers. 

You develop the resilience, mindset and skills required to enact change that sticks. You care about SUSTAINABLE CHANGE and PROFOUND IMPACT.


You will hone your ability to work across various levels, focussing on yourself, others, and the broader system (your organisation, community, society, world).


We blend our experience in systemic change, organisational development and strategy with coaching to equip you with immediately actionable tools helping you stay at the forefront of change, leadership and org design. 


At the core of everything we teach is deep coaching competence.

Our work is holistic and uses insights from agile ways of working (Scrum, Design Thinking, etc.), system dynamics, use of self, non-violent communication, metaphors, music, movement and implicit memory.
