LEADERSHIP IN PRACTICE
TRAIN TEAM LEADERSHIP AND BE MORE CLEAR ON YOUR BEHAVIOR
This 3-day course focuses on strengthening your leadership through deeper insights into how your behavior impacts others and hands-on training in communicating, planning, resource assessment and motivating your employees.
With the intention that you achieve a specific, challenging task together as a team.
The goal of Leadership in Practice is that you as a leader:
- can adapt your leadership behavior to a team and its members, ensuring motivation and commitment within the team
- can leverage a team’s resources and skills, and
- can work constructively with a team’s strengths and challenges
We work with the Myers-Briggs Type indicator as psychological framework for understanding your own and others’ behavior, as well as how you as a leader work constructively with different person types. As preparation for the course, you will be asked to complete an MBTi questionnaire that we review on the first day of the course.
On the second and third days of the course you work in specific training situations where your leadership behavior and team collaboration and performance are practiced, in a way that the connection between your leadership and the effect becomes clear.
You gain deeper psychological understanding of human behavior and concrete tools for your leadership.
