In your leadership role, you must meet professional goals, while also achieving personal goals for yourself and your employees. As a leader, you’ll face new and challenging situations every day. This course will give you practice in situations that may arise in this new role.
The leadership role differs from organisation to organisation. But a feature common to most leaders is that they need to create results through other people. So, it’s important to work on relationships between people. During this course, you will work on your own and other people’s reaction patterns.
Besides the practical approach through training, you will also gain a theoretical foundation. Much of the theory will be gained through case training, where theory will be linked directly to the practical training.
The training takes place in groups of no more than 8 participants for each teacher.
Feedback from instructors and other participants is an important part of the course. Since all participants are new to the leadership role or interested in the basic skills of leadership, the feedback and exchange of experience during the course will come from peers and will be constructive and forward-looking.
