Explore your role as a leader and develop your leadership skills
This course takes your personal leadership role as its starting point. We look at both your personal and professional background and qualifications, so you can take a conscious decision about what kind of leader you want to be. This gives you the opportunity to reflect on your role as leader and a platform to discuss your personal strengths and weaknesses with the other participants and your instructor. The course is heavily centered around knowledge sharing and feedback between the participants.
Three days packed with knowledge, experience exchange and training
Through tailored cases and exercises and the newest theories on leadership you will share experiences and train situations and confrontations close to practice. You will get useful insights into your own, your employees and co-workers reaction patterns and learn how to use these insights to further develop to the leader you want to be.
The mind of the leader
Today’s employees are seeking meaning, human relationships, and have a desire to make a positive contribution to the world. Hence as a leader you need to practice human leadership and develop a people-oriented culture where employees feel motivated and wholeheartedly engaged. During this course you will strengthen your leadership capacity to embrace these new demands. You will learn how using insights about yourselves, your employees, and your organization will enable you to adjust your leadership to the demands to the employees and to what works under given circumstances.
