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.
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.
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.
Our First-Time Leaders Community kicks off in the month before you start your first leadership role.
Topics in Module 1 include:
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!
Several places throughout the year are reserved for scholarship recipients! To qualify, you’ll need to be a first-time leader working in an NGO, social business or civil society organisation. Do also get in touch if you are currently unemployed and the community would support you in your upcoming position.
To apply for a scholarship place, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your email should address the following:

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