Leadership is changing. In the digital age, new, dynamic leadership competencies are needed in addition to traditional competencies. Providing orientation without knowing the exact path, providing security in times in which something different can apply tomorrow than today. Your managers need the right tools to do this.

Seminar 1

leadership basics

Confident start in the new manager’s role

“At last Manager!” The joy is tremendous over this longed for promotion!  However, it does not take long to find out that with this new position many unexpected situations arise.

Managers are able to prepare for these unexpected challenges, for example how to deal with various personalities. Only when you have the knowledge of how to approach these varied challenging situations are you able to categorise and master irritating or surprising behaviour of your staff.

In this foundation seminar for prospective and new managers you will get to know psychological explanatory models giving you a better understanding for the behaviour of other people. With this Power-Potential-Profile® developed by flow consulting, you will also gain insight into your own personality and your inner attitude towards leadership and your professional role. This way you will be even better equipped to deal with various management situations, reflecting, recognising, mastering options.

Seminar 2

leadership communication

Practical, sound, suitable for everyday use – valuable tools for your management communication

Your employees may expect you as a manager to set the tone in the team. It is therefore important to strike the right note in very different situations.

Many managers owe their rise to leadership to their professional competence. But you won’t get far with that alone. Your communication skills are at least as important for your professional success. As a manager, you have to assign tasks to your employees, criticize and motivate them, give feedback and address conflicts, convince them and enter into a real dialogue. This is often challenging and new. This makes it all the more important for you to acquire the communicative tools on which you can rely even in difficult conversations.

In this training you will reflect on your communication skills and develop them further. You will get to know practical tools for every conversation situation and test them in the seminar so that you can use them successfully in your daily work. It is no longer a problem for you to strike the right note after this seminar.

Target group:

  • Executives at all levels
