The Leadership Program
Skillfully managing staff, communicating more effectively, with a confident appearance. Management training and seminar for developing your own personal management skills. 4 + 3 days.
This program is ideal for a person who has been successful at leading employees for some time now, who has acquired a leadership style that is strongly shaped by his or her own personality. There is no such thing as "the" right management style with successful executives like you.
This is because managerial success is primarily due to the personality and social competence of that individual. Latest studies on the behavior of successful managers have revealed this. If you compare their management styles, you see that, despite some similarities in typical behavioral patterns, each style is highly influenced by individual personality. So it's a lot of work to develop your management style to be even more effective, because you're already effective. But if you consistently check your management situation, identify your own specific management skills and learn to apply these in an even more targeted way – while optimizing your social competence – then it is possible.
The St.Gallen Management Program makes this possibility a reality. It helps you be more aware of what you need to work on. It gives you the instruments and methods you need for assessing your own personal management style, and optimizing even further.
HOW THE PROGRAM IS STRUCTURED
A 4 + 3-day leadership program with the goal of appraising and optimizing your personal management style. If you're an executive with leadership experience under your belt, or a manager about to assume a new business management task, then this program is meant to inspire you to take your personal skills matrix to the next level by using what you learn here on a daily basis.
