SUPSI Image Focus
Claudia is Head of Training and Development at the Migros Ticino Cooperative, for which SUPSI organized two tailor-made courses: hybrid leadership in a context of great change for the world of work and new leadership, with a focus on emotional management of change.
What motivated Migros Ticino Cooperative to choose SUPSI as a partner for the training of its employees?
We chose SUPSI because we were looking for a partner that was rooted in the territory, but at the same time offered us a wide-ranging training proposal, designed ad hoc on our specific needs and not through a pre-packaged approach. The analysis phase prior to the design was carried out in depth and we were comforted by the possibility of having a comparison with professionals who, in addition to their extensive knowledge at a theoretical level, also brought us experience gained in the field, even in environments very different from our own. The level of the narrative, the quality of the content and the possibility of its application in the company, combined with the sharing of experiences with accomplished and successful professionals, constitute an excellent mix for our target audience.
