Master Program

Organizational advice, coaching, organization (re-)design and change

The Semco Style Master Program is an intensive training of nine days in total. During the training you work on a change at your customer’s or your own organization. You will be assisted by a top facilitator, inspiring guest speakers, a small group of experienced fellow students, and last but not least, by Semco Style: a source of inspiration, philosophy and practical toolkit for anyone who wants to work with self-management. Semco Style was developed by a Dutch team of experienced training experts and consultants together with Ricardo Semler.

Semco Style Modular Training Program

Semco is renowned throughout the world for its innovative business approach. The Brazilian company succeeded in achieving spectacular results through common sense, faith, responsibility, and did so with the support of happy, healthy employees. In the 90s, Semco successfully introduced its unique approach to a range of large and small organizations. Today, several books and documentaries that explain the philosophy behind Semco, and the ideas of its founder Ricardo Semler, have inspired leaders around the world. But, for the first time, all the knowledge and experience of Semco is now available in a modular, multi-level training and certification program, offered by Semco Style Institute.

Our modular training program consists of 3 levels, that you can register separately for, or sign up for all at once. On this page you can read more about the third level, the Master Program. You can only enter this program after first following the Fundamentals Program and the Changemaker Program.
