AbstractWith the aim of preparing the students to take on managerial responsibility, this 2x3 days-seminar teaches basic and practical management skills.
ObjectiveTo convey management behaviour based on practical examples, own experiences and team discussions complemented by short theory sessions.
ContentWhen talking of leadership, one in most cases refers to the interaction between superior and associate. However, leadership in modern times also involves the interaction with peers, with one’s own superior as well as with other stakeholders. Thus, not leadership but personal leadership skills are needed which also comprise communication, self management and personality aspects.

In the light of this, this seminar offers you the opportunity to acquire competencies in all of the just mentioned subjects and to reflect on your current behaviour as (future) leader. The more familiar we are with ourselves, the more we become aware of our needs, the freeer we are to express ourselves and to interact with others.

The seminar will be a mixture of theory inputs, discussions, self-reflecting moments, group work with short presentations as well as some role plays to give you the opportunity not only to get to know the relevant theories and models, but also to apply and test them. This shall enable you to return to your daily work life and be ready for the challenges of being a (future) leader.

Be familiar with and feel able to able current concepts and theories related to leadership skills based on practical examples, own experiences and team discussions complemented by short theory sessions.
