course contents

The course introduces the basics of the thought-processes and actions of leaders and the simultaneous application of management and leadership skills. Exercising power responsibly, communication and empathy characterize leadership as a central competency in companies. The discussion will be based on the relevant qualities of leaders as well as on their behavior in order to lead and promote colleagues and teams to make innovation and change possible, and to be a role model as a business-minded person. The range of perspectives of the applied examples is large: from leadership in international contexts to leaders in top-level sport and culture.
