Amara Collaboration offers

We walk beside individuals, teams and organisations through their challenges and best intentions. We offer structures and methods to help companies who want to shift their leadership and culture to be smarter with the challenges and opportunities they face. We offer helpful learning processes for teams and individuals to enable a shift to a new level of leading, thinking and acting according to their ambitions.

Organisational Development

We design unique programmes for organisations, their teams and individuals facing major transitions. We work in a close and flexible partnership with the significant leaders always being attentive and respectful to the specific needs, challenges and opportunities emerging.

Individual Development

We provide developmental leadership coaching, mentoring and coach supervision for individuals and teams, that enables leverage to another level of leading, thinking and acting according to their ambitions.


The Global Leadership Profile (GLP) is both a self-assessment and a professionally-scored profile that identifies a person’s developmental leadership action-logic. An 'action logic' is the way we make meaning of ourselves, our relationships and the wider context which then determines our behaviour in both business and everyday life.
