Leadership skills

The success of a company depends to a large extent on the leadership and skills of its managers. Giving feedback, motivating employees and delegating tasks are some of the key elements of successful leadership. However, the demands placed on leaders are increasingly numerous, and the roles they have to take on are more and more diverse. Key leadership skills for the 21st century include being able to successfully lead virtual and intercultural teams and to act as a coach or change manager.

Typgerecht führen
macrolearningTypgerecht führen
Typgerecht führen
Jeder Mensch ist einzigartig. Trotzdem treffen wir bei unterschiedlichen Menschen immer wieder auf ähnliche Persönlichkeitseigenschaften. Typenmodelle helfen als Vereinfachung einer komplexen Welt dabei, Menschen besser zu verstehen. In Ihrer Führungsrolle haben Sie mit den unterschiedlichsten Mitarbeitertypen zu tun und sollten wissen, wie Sie mit wem am besten umgehen. Damit alle Mitarbeitenden in Ihrem Team ihr Potenzial voll ausschöpfen können, ist es wichtig, sie entsprechend ihrer Persönlichkeit beziehungsweise ihres Persönlichkeitstyps individuell anzusprechen, abzuholen, zu fordern und zu entwickeln. Typgerechte Führung ermöglicht Ihnen genau das: einzuschätzen, was für ein Typ Ihr Gegenüber ist, und dann aus dem Repertoire der Handlungen treffsicher genau die Strategie auszuwählen, die genau diese Person bestmöglich abholt. So gelingt es Ihnen nicht nur, typgerecht auf die einzelnen Mitarbeitenden einzugehen, sondern auch, Teams so zusammenzusetzen, dass Gleichartigkeit vermittelnd und Unterschiedlichkeit befruchtend wirken.

More and more projects are being executed outside of traditional corporate hierarchies, by interdepartmental or even intercompany teams assembled based on competencies. In teams like these, there is often no disciplinary leader. Instead, the team has a lateral leader. That leader is then responsible for the project results but without being a superior in charge of the team. In this course, we will explain what exactly the special characteristics of lateral leadership are. We will use a practical example to show you how lateral leadership operates and what leadership tools are of special importance.

Führen mit Empathie
macrolearningLeading with Empathy
Leading with EmpathyLeading with Empathy
The ability to lead with empathy is considered to be a supreme discipline in leadership. If you succeed in managing your team with appreciation and trust in your daily work, you will be able to win over your employees more easily. Because with empathy, you not only take other people with you – you can also better understand them and put yourself in their shoes. This will create a working atmosphere in which your team will know they are appreciated and therefore will feel more comfortable. This will have a positive effect on every conversation and on your ability to persuade and convince others as a manager. Those who show empathy and attentiveness when dealing with other people can also better assess their attitude and thus avoid negative consequences of misjudgments. But leading with empathy is something that needs to be learned. In this training course, you will learn how to be more perceptive of other people's emotions and understand their motives. By applying this understanding, you will have greater assurance in working out suitable courses of action.
Konfliktmanagement für Führungskräfte
macrolearningConflict Resolution for Managers
Conflict Resolution for ManagersConflict Resolution for ManagersConflict Resolution for ManagersConflict Resolution for ManagersConflict Resolution for Managers
For managers, the rule is: intervene as little as possible, but as much as necessary in a conflict involving their own employees. As a starting point, it is important to also recognize hidden conflicts and assess their severity. The theoretical basis for this is provided by Friedrich Glasl's model of the nine stages of conflict escalation. It clearly shows how conflicts can escalate if timely intervention is neglected. For each escalation stage, managers therefore learn various methods of conflict resolution - from the promotion of independent conflict resolution to mediation and arbitration as well as to the intervention of power.
