About this program

Personal Leadership Skills - 5-Day Certificate Course

Dealing with power and influence

The central object of this course is leadership. A topic that yields over 487 million results in an internet search illustrating that the interest in the topic is overwhelming. Leadership is not a theoretical concept; in the end it is about who you are and what you do.

Since the art of leadership is only truly mastered by hands-on experience and practice, you are also invited to practice and reflect on a number of skills.

Developing your personal leadership style/values will be a central theme throughout the program. This course tackles only a small part of the subject of leadership and will be a combination of theoretical concepts and practical exercises.

This program is flexible and can be adapted based on the input of the participants. Therefore, we expect you to take an active role as participant in order to link the different visions and practices to your day-to-day life.

After successfully completing this course you have:

  •  Acquired insights in your personal value system and leadership strengths and weaknesses.
  •  Acquired insights in how you influence and are being influenced
  •  Acquired insights in your personal sources of power and how to use and extend these
