Team building and leadership

This seminar improves and challenges the participants' team-building and leadership competencies in an interactive way. It will provide some theoretical background on leading and working in teams, but mainly it will help transfer this knowledge into practical situations. In addition to group-work phases, the training will include several shorter and longer exercises including feedback from the instructors. At the end of the training, participants will have:

  • Been introduced to the idea of leadership being essentially about dealing with complexity and about making decisions in complex situations;
  • Understood the idea of different leadership styles and started reflecting on and further developing their own leadership style;
  • Gained insights into different ways of leading, as well as working in a team and be able to relate this to their experience from other work contexts;
  • Have improved their practical teamwork and leadership skills, among others in the following respects: Defining the structure of the team, organising the workflow, establishing clear and realistic goals, communicating effectively, recognising and managing conflicts, coaching and motivating team members, etc.
