Leadership Essentials Program
WHU’s Leadership Essentials Program explores the foundations of leadership by comparing effective and ineffective leadership behaviors – and by challenging you to (re-)consider who you are as a leader and why anybody should be led by you. During the 3-day interactive leadership seminar, you will develop a greater understanding of your own leadership, critical team dynamics as well as the strategic value of leadership at an organizational level.
We use exercises, group work, and case studies to illustrate the behaviors of highly effective leaders. The program concludes with reflections on what you have learned and a forward plan that will help you apply the insights you gained during the business leadership program. You will receive a WHU Executive Education Certificate after successfully completing the program.
This Program is part of the Management Essentials Program, a package that provides participants, who are transitioning into a leadership position, or have done so recently, with the fundamental skills of General Management. You can choose 3 out of 5 of the following programs: Leadership Essentials, Strategy Essentials, Financial Literacy, Brand Management, and Innovation & Corporate Entrepreneurship Essentials.
In combination with an additional personality profile, the 3 programs can be scheduled flexibly to make them best fit your professional and personal schedule.
Upon completion of the program, participants receive WHU’s “Certificate of Excellence in General Management”. Furthermore, you can choose to gain 6 ECTS credits.
The advantage for you is that program contents and methods can be adjusted to your company’s strategy and your employees’ skills and needs.
