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, that is, to make them more self-managed and self-responsible.
In this training course, you will learn about the “head and heart” of everyday leadership and management, the decision-making process, and new ways of managing motivation to enhance self-responsibility. This course 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.
This course includes 8 sessions spreading over 4 consecutive days. Each session is for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
The course is designed for everyone working in civil society organizations, who wants to learn the foundations of leadership and team management and build essential skills. We welcome participants from different positions and from diverse departments to create a rich mix of experience and perspectives.
