Leading effectively as an expert - Practical training program

Experts carry the professional know how of organisations and gain more and more importance in nowadays knowledge society. Specialists contribute to organisational goals as much as hierarchically high positioned top managers. But the experts’ development – concrete careers and appropriate development and qualification offers – often have less focus than line managers’ development.

With three modules our certification course communicates and trains the very competencies experts need to execute plans and projects across different departments.

Webinar: Exposure Therapy in people development

How to gain more meaning and purpose for your (business) life

In his webinar, Michael talks about the underlying psychology of confidence and self-esteem, and how using methods from Exposure Therapy as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) can help you and your team live a more meaningful life that is directed toward your goals and guided by your core values.

Instead of waiting “to be in the mood” to do what’s really important, ACT teaches how to increase the willingness to act despite negative thoughts and emotions through psychological flexibility. Not by changing these thoughts and feelings – but by learning ways to gain enough distance from them so that they are no longer the driving force of our behavior.

Limited participant number!

Next dates:

  • 23.02.2018, 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. (GTM +1:00; in English)

Workshops & Trainings

Lateral leadership at eye level

Modern forms of cooperation – in flat management structures, matrix or expert organisations – require a new understanding of management. Lateral management means taking influence to reach shared goals, without the hierarchical authority of a manager.

Traditional management tools meet their limits here. Our partnership approach of lateral management provides the commitment console as an instrument for the key tasks of a lateral manager: strategy development and communication.
