What is Ninja Leadership?

Ninja Leadership is human-centric leadership based on the belief that everyone has (nearly) unlimited potential to grow. It aims to maximise employee performance and engagement through a mixture of Neuroscience, Behavioural Psychology, Design Thinking, and the Agile Mindset.

Today’s greatest leaders replace old management-styles by human-centric leadership aimed at growth and engagement. They emphasise adaptability, curiosity and learning as the ultimate skills for employees… and for themselves. We’d love to teach you the processes, tools and tactics to help your company thrive in today’s digital world through masterful leadership.

If you’re looking for a standard training, this course is not for you. It’s for people that want to be challenged, forever broaden their perspective on leadership and do things differently.

Get a sneak peek

The Ninja Leadership crash course is full of energy, inspiration and meaningful action. It’s supported by a beautiful deck of slides, which we will share with you after the course. But if you really can’t wait…

Ninjafy really made us realise that the human aspect of the organisation is much more important in achieving our goals than we sometimes see. Niels brings a lot of positive energy in to the training, knows how to create peace in our thinking and helped us with hands on approaches. Ninjafy, thank you for the pleasant cooperation, which will certainly take effect in the future.

Joris Pals, Concept Developer at Aim for the Moon

An impressive, instructive and inspiring training with enthusiastic and passionate trainers that I have learned a lot from. I can use this in both in our company and in my own life, a real eye opener!

Who are your instructors?

Meet the Ninjas that were shaped by experience into masters of Agility and the brain. 

Marc Rodan

Agile Ninja

Expert in Agility, all-things-creative and experimentation

Marc Rodan is a Ninja and world traveller, full of passion for his work. But it wasn’t always like that. Originally stuck in perfectionism and inaction, he has learned how to unlock his human super power to learn and adapt constantly. Marc: “our amazing ability to learn allows us to achieve almost anything. Every single person possesses this power, but as we grow up we often forget how to use it”. Fortunately, he’s here to change that!

Niels den Daas

Neuro Ninja

Master of the brain, motivation and purposeful work

Niels den Daas is a neuroscientist, AI enthusiast and lover of a good mental or physical challenge. He built the largest educational network of the Netherlands, where he led over 40 self-managing teams. However, the company’s success came with a price… more and more micro-managing. Seeing that not only himself, but a lot of people around him were unhappy with their current situation, he now helps people break free from their harmful routines as a Ninja.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to complete the Ninja Leadership crash course?

It takes two days to complete the face-to-face course; each day starts at 10:00 AM and ends at 05:00 PM. Lunch is included. After these two days, you will get access to our online learning modules to solidify and apply your knowledge. You will also gain access to our exclusive community of experts and fellow Ninja Leaders on Slack and WhatsApp for life-long support.

How long will I have access to the online course material and the community?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to the online content for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own. But the best part is that you will be part of a community of Ninjas that will continue to support you to ensure that you’ll truly become a Ninja Leader in every aspect of your work and life.

Most of our courses are fully taught in English, although arrangements can be made to do the on-site workshop in Dutch or other languages. Feel free to send us a mail at hi@ninjafy.me to discuss possibilities.
