Course Content:
Leadership today requires a wide range of skills and abilities. This online-workshop will provide students with an understanding of modern leadership techniques and allow them to develop their own leadership potential.

The workshop will be conducted in three sessions and take an interactive approach, emphasising group work. They will be built around three main headings:

  • Leading Teams: This session will establish an overview of leadership styles. It will also provide the necessary tools to put together effective teams and understand different team roles and functions in order to prepare students to lead teams of varying configurations.
  • Leading Subordinates: Leadership in modern work environments increasingly takes on roles of mentoring, coaching and empowerment. This session will provide students with the necessary tools and knowledge to fill these important functions. This will include communication and effective feedback techniques as well as developing methods for creating gender equality as well as intercultural equality.
  • Leading Change: Leadership in situations of uncertainty as well as short-term projects aimed at adapting to changing external circumstances necessitates a particular set of skills. The third session will draw on the knowledge gained previously and broaden the scope to the challenges of change management. This will be introduced in depth before encouraging students to apply their new expertise independently.

Learning Goals:
The workshop aims to provide an understanding of leadership techniques and how to apply them. Key concepts include: Teambuilding, communication, feedback, coaching and mentoring, talent development, establishing a leadership vision and leading by example.

Study Performance:
Full attendance and active participation, independent involvement in exercises, reflecting on exercises and seminar content, presentation of work results, completion of possible tasks, independent preparation of content and materials (also between the course days).
