Are You a First-Time Leader? Your Journey to Success Starts Here

Join The Globe Team’s First-Time Leaders Community and build the confidence you need to thrive in your new leadership role.

If you’re ready to take your leadership skills to the next level, join our First-Time Leaders Community now.

Success in leadership starts with a strong foundation.

Leading others can be one of the most rewarding opportunities of your career. But it can also come with a sense of insecurity and doubt, especially for first-time leaders in an international work environment.

Our First-Time Leaders Community prepares you to tackle real-world leadership challenges.

Are you just embarking on your first leadership role? You’ve found us at the perfect time. Our leadership cohorts match new leaders with a group of like-minded peers and a coach who balances experience with empathy.

We asked real first-time leaders to share their concerns. Then we listened.

Leading a team for the first time can feel overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be.

Our First-Time Leaders Community can help you…

The First-Time Leaders Community is the go-to-place if you believe that setting the foundations right is the starting point for team success!

The First-Time Leaders Community includes...

Content: Learn at your own pace, with four hours of self-paced video content focused on building practical leadership skills.

Community: Membership includes two community calls per month, live online workshops with real-time feedback, and access to an exclusive Slack channel for you and your peers

Coaching: Bolster your skills in one-hour private coaching sessions with our expert coaches. Private sessions are optional and available in English, German, French, Spanish or Dutch.

An Overview of Our Leadership Training Program

Meet Your Coach

Hi, I’m Katrin! 

I’ve worked for many years in leadership development, both at a large multinational corporation and as founder of The Globe Team.

One thing that has always struck me is how much strong leadership matters. Great leadership skills can transform a team that struggles into a team that finds consistent success. That’s why I created The Globe Team. I believe that it’s essential to invest in leadership skills from the beginning, but not everybody knows where to start.
Here’s the good news: If you’ve found The Globe Team, you’ve found your starting place!

 I’ve worked with 200+ team leaders across diverse countries and companies, specialising in building durable team-development processes and strategies for 1:1 coaching. After spending eight years at Airbus, I helped build leaders in startup environments such as Y Food, gridX, German Accelerator and Techstars. I’ve also worked with government organisations such as the German Federal Foreign Office and large-scale corporations such as DeutschePost DHL. Now, I want to bring my experience and empathy to your new challenge as a leader! 

But a leadership community is about more than one person. While you’ll learn directly from me in our video series, you’ll also have the chance to engage with other expert coaches during community calls. All of our coaches have international backgrounds and leadership experience in corporations and start-ups.

So, let’s start your new leadership journey together!

Who is the First-Time Leaders Community for?

It is for:

  • People stepping into their first leadership role in the coming months, or people who have recently stepped into this role
  • People who are keen on self-development 
  • People who can share openly and reflect thoughtfully on their mistakes as well as their successes
  • People who feel comfortable sharing about their own experiences in English
  • People who are able to invest the time it takes to become a good leader from the start

It is not for:

  • People who have already led a team for a number of years
  • People who are not so keen on self-reflection
  • People who don’t feel comfortable sharing their experiences with others, even in a confidential setting

Are you ready to become a more confident and capable leader?


For Module 1, it’s good to plan about one hour of additional self-reflection. The other modules require about 15 minutes of self-reflection.

Yes, if you recently (i.e. in the last several months) took over your first leadership role. Just note that the content from Module 1 may not be as relevant to you. The rest of the modules, however, cover important general leadership topics and definitely bring great value to you in addition to the community exchange with other first-time leaders!

The community calls for the next cohort will be set at a later date. They will both take place via Zoom.

Each community call is a workshop that lasts 1.5 hours and consists of:

  • Introduction
  • Content input
  • Exchange about the participants’ topics/peer coaching
  • Wrap-up and actions for experiential learning between the community calls

1:1 individual sessions with our coaches are optional and can be booked additionally. They are not included in the price.
