Leadership intelligence: leading yourself and others intelligently

Why this seminar?

Successful leadership is still largely dependent on the personal maturity and human qualities of the leader.

At the same time, the demands on leaders and on all those who want to assume responsibility for their role will become very demanding in the future:

  • Currently aggravating external influences that are incalculable in advance, such as global political crisis situations, resulting supply chain problems, inflation-related cost increases, etc. These influences increase the pressure on managers to lead effectively and successfully and to achieve good results.
  • New forms of work such as agility, self-organization and home office as a sign of more employee participation create new challenges for leaders. Leadership principles that have proven themselves in the past often collide with future challenges and thus reach their limits.
  • The shortage of skilled workers and growing complexity create additional pressure: old behaviors characterized by hierarchical-authoritarian ideas reduce the likelihood of leadership success in these contextual conditions.
  • The coming generations are constantly placing new and unprecedented demands on leadership and cooperation.

This increases the demands on the personal maturity of managers. An adequate response to the demands of dealing with ambiguity and complexity therefore lies in the personality of the respective leader. Social and emotional intelligence become important effective factors of the respective leadership role: Leading oneself and others - leadership intelligence.

Mode of operation and procedure of the training

We are interested in long-term development processes and therefore work experience-oriented. Real development requires precision and time. An exercise-intensive approach with an exploratory character, as well as coaching sequences in small groups, enable experiences that take into account the individual concerns of the participants and allow them to experience sustainable development with all their senses. Our approach is supported by mindfulness as the basis for increased self-awareness and genuine personal development.

Part 1 (4 days): Self-knowledge, self-regulation, self-leadership, courage.

Part 2 (3 days): Relationship building, cooperation, trust

Part 3 (1 day): Transfer and future day

Hybrid or virtual sessions take place between seminars to deepen content, clarify questions and accompany development through professional supervision.

What is this seminar not?

Our seminar is not a surface polish with entertainment character. We deliberately avoid standardized personality models with color or letter clusters in order to avoid pigeonholing. Rather, our aim is to explore oneself and others on the basis of observation anchors, to sharpen one's view and perception of the individual, and thus to build open, explorative leadership awareness. We impart competencies in order to be able to solidly shape the expedition of personality development.
