Leadership & Vitality

In this course you will zoom in on the themes of leadership and vitality in various accredited masterclasses. This program offers 3 modules from the accredited MBA training, possibly supplemented with the optional HRM masterclass. Due to the academic nature, we look at what is and is not scientifically proven about these subjects and we delve deeply into underlying visions and their practical applicability.

Why this Program?

The biggest challenge in leadership is to respond to the changes of our future. For several decades, leadership has been about inspiring and motivating employees. In this day and age this is especially important because of the battle for talent. Good people are scarce, therefore we must ensure an attractive working environment and employees must connect with the vision, values ​​and standards of the organization. People consider personal development more important than material reward.

The present time has an even greater challenge. The themes of meaning and sustainability play an increasingly important role for employees.

There is a lot of attention for social involvement and sustainability. Sustainability is also about the person himself. “Well-being” and “work-life balance” are just English words, every employee knows them, but how do we make policy for this? How do we integrate this into business operations? How do we turn this challenge into an opportunity?

About the Program

The specialized accredited course Leadership & Vitality program consists of 11 lecture days (or 14 with the optional HRM course) focused on a specific theme and several days you spend with your studygroup writing your final assignment.
