Management training and leadership seminars

>> Who says theory is always dry and boring?

Good leadership is not a mystery or something shrouded in secrecy. And it’s rarely just about talent. Having the most amazing gut feeling is great, but it’s not much use if you can’t weigh it up against the facts and know-how.

This is the angle we come from in my management training sessions and leadership seminars – especially when it comes to positions in middle management and managers involved (and hopefully not embroiled) in change processes.

It doesn’t matter how much management experience people have, course participants learn how management ‘functions’. They are given everything they need to develop a personal style of confident leadership, through the right tools, tasks, principles, communication techniques and the actions of team leadership.

As well as offering classic training, I also provide moderated and directed feedback as a form of management dialogue and collegial counselling.

TOOLS AND METHODS THAT MAKE AN IMPACT:

  • Knowledge lighthouses, thanks to practical how-to methods
  • A clear and comprehensible understanding of management
  • Pragmatic implementation of typical leadership tasks
  • Fast-track confidence in everyday team tasks, even (and especially) in challenging times
  • No more holding back when it comes to situations involving critical communication

Particular areas of focus

  • Conflict management:
    I approach this classic area of training by avoiding compartmentalised thinking and off-the-shelf solutions. The reason this is particularly important is that every so-called problem is actually just a cobweb consisting of causes and effects.

  • Genuine leadership:
    Thinking rationally is a good start, but it’s only part of the picture and there’s a particular tendency among managers with a penchant for technical topics to resort to rational behaviour. Depending on the challenge, I try to focus more on the emotional aspects of behaviour. The idea is to allow course participants to gain a better understanding of more holistic approaches to leadership.
