Advanced Leadership & Communication Skills

Skillfully managing staff, communicating more effectively, with a confident appearance. Management training and seminar for developing your own personal management skills. 4 + 3 days.


The goal of effective leadership is to focus the power of an organization on common objectives. Resources and talent should be employed in such a way so that everyone involved is committed and motivated to achieve above-average results. A desire to perform well, to be productive and produce high quality – along with enjoyment in shared success – should be anchored throughout the entire company.


4 + 3 days to take you to the next level. In our Advanced Leadership Program, you'll learn the most important principles for being an even more effective leader. Especially suited to implementers and executives who have been successful and are currently working in leadership positions with high responsibility. In the first seminar you will learn techniques to optimize your leadership skills, so you can then apply them even more effectively in an executive capacity. In the second seminar, you'll practice using these skills to convince others, and to successfully assert yourself in a friendly way, during difficult communication and meeting situations.
