Become a high impact leader and improve the performance of your organization

In today's rapidly changing landscape organizational effectiveness is needed to make a difference. This is equally valid for profit as well as for non-profit and public sector organizations. As organizations are more and more using teams as the basic working unit it is vital to focus on achieving team effectiveness. Many different kinds of teams exist, but they all share the need for proper leadership even with self-directed teams.

The general objective of this program is to equip managers/leaders with know-how and skills to be an effective leader in order to enhance the general performance of the team(s) he or she is leading. In this course you will learn about team leadership, your own personal leadership style and its effectiveness.

Because personal, team and organizational effectiveness is highly based on the internal values people hold, the concept of value based leadership is central to this course. Strategic leadership entails creating an inspiring vision, setting the organization’s direction, objectives and priorities, and by aligning internal resources to achieve the ambitions, as well as aligning internal and external stakeholders.

This program focuses on the most relevant aspects of effective strategic leadership and offers tools and instruments necessary for developing and implementing strategic ambitions effectively. In this course you will learn about organizational strategic leadership, how to create a high performance organizational culture, and get deeper insight into your own personal leadership style and effectiveness. Because personal, team and organizational effectiveness is highly based on the internal values people hold, the concept of value based leadership is central to this course.
