New in a Leadership Position - Qualifying Program


Your Situation

Leading employees means assuming responsibility for people in a professional context; together meeting agreed targets and being a representative of the interests of the organization
The pleasure experienced when transferring to a leadership position is also accompanied by tension and brings up diverse questions:

  • What are my future employees like and how do they expect me to be?
  • Are all my employees at the same location or are they geographically separated?
  • How will I be perceived by others? Will my management style be accepted?
  • Who else will have a say on the subject of leadership?
  • How will I handle my work - private life balance?
  • How will I meet the expectations of my superiors and the company?

Without the support of your employees, you will not be successful. Try from the beginning to captivate and win over your employees for your ideas with your credibility and personable manner. Become aware of what motivates them, what expectations they have and how to work together in a team in order to be successful together.

Your Benefit

In this three-part qualification program we will compile general and individual answers to the questions that typically arise after taking on leadership responsibility. In this way, participants will be prepared for their new leadership role and thereby learn to avoid the classic pitfalls.
Keeping in mind the leadership philosophy and values of the organization, proven leadership models as well as the personality of the individual manager, the participants reflect on their own approach to leadership and develop a personal stance and courses of action for various leadership situations.
