Leading People and Teams

Executive education program in English

Do you have what it takes to be a successful leader? In order to improve your effectiveness as a leader, it is important to take time to sharpen your skills and to explore and reflect on your personal leadership attributes. Our four-day leadership laboratory Leading People and Teams will help you to gain awareness of your blind spots as a leader and develop strategies to correct them. You will also learn how to influence decision makers in support of your initiatives, how to diagnose and remedy potentially toxic organizational dynamics, and how to bolster your leadership through a well­-functioning, productive professional network.


The laboratory’s challenging but safe environment provides you with the opportunity to reflect on your experience as a leader, experiment with different leadership approaches, and receive valuable feedback and support from both faculty and peers. The individual learning experiences are seconded by a full day of group executive coaching as well as post-­program follow­-ups.
