Leadership Essentials

Develop Yourself and Strengthen Vibrant Teams

The most valuable assets of every organization are the people. One of the key objectives of today’s leaders and managers is the empowerment of people, i.e. to make them more self-managed.

Civil Society has become a major force globally, and increasingly in developing countries. However, the pace of change and influence of civil society depends a lot on the capacity of civil society organizations and specifically their leaders. In this context, leadership plays a crucial role in organizational development, influence and ultimately the success of civil society actors in achieving social change and social justice.

This course will help you to reflect on your leadership and management style. It will deepen your understanding on and how you interact with your colleagues and partners. This is important in order to fulfill the most noble objective of leadership, which is empowering others.

In this training course you will learn about the ‘head and heart’ of everyday leadership. It will deepen your understanding of why and how leadership and management skills are so critical to organizational success. The practical tools and concepts will help to develop yourself as well as high-performing teams.

What fellow pioneers share about the training

Thomas Hoerz, Area Manager, Somaliland, Welthungerhilfe

"It was very useful for myself-reflections about my own leadership style and my own values. More then for myself, I could reflect on the leadership and management strengths and weaknesses of the managers and leaders working in my programme. What impressed me clearly most was the competent, but always patient, and respectful moderation by Sohini."

Rakhi Sharma, Assistant to National Coordinator SHA, Kindernothilfe, India

"Well developed course with excellent trainer. Simply explaining the complex concepts, space for discussions in break-out rooms was most interesting. The course was extremely relevant in exploring self-leadership and improving my skills."

Gisela Pereira, Roving Head ofProject, Welthungerhilfe
