Leadership & Change

Good leaders renew, tackle and change the status quo. They inspire colleagues to have a clear and shared vision, enable others to act, set a good example and take the organization in tow. It is important to first get to know yourself, then scan your environment and then make the optimal choice for putting the team together. You do not renew and change on your own

The biggest challenge in leadership is to respond to the changes of our future. For several decades, leadership has been about inspiring and motivating employees. In this day and age this is especially important because of the battle for talent. Good people are scarce, therefore we must ensure an attractive working environment and employees must connect with the vision, values ​​and standards of the organization. People consider personal development more important than material reward.

The present time has an even greater challenge. The themes of meaning and sustainability play an increasingly important role for employees.

In the part-time program Leadership & Change, you will learn concepts of leadership, history and developments, which form important starting points for further personal development. Social change is the basis on which you apply the provided concepts in your own practice.

The specialized accredited course Leadership and Change program consists of 16 days focused on a specific theme and several days you spend with your study group writing your final assignment. The first 3 days are wrapped together in a kick-off session focussing on the themes of personal leadership and self-management. A great way to get to know your fellow students, but also yourself! This kick-off session will be a combination of indoor and outdoor activities all focused on leadership and communication. During the other lecture days you will focus on Leadership & Change.
