IAD applies a holistic approach. We believe that the modern manager and leadership are based on goals, motivation, freedom, responsibility and follow-up.

IAD defines a manager as a leader with responsibility for budget and to recruit personnel. A leader has the same management task but with budget and responsibility to recruit personnel excluded. Therefore we have two different level 1 courses; one for managers and one for leaders. After the initial phase managers and leaders join the same phase 2 and phase 3.
