Führung von Mitarbeitern und Teams

People and teams drive organizational progress, yet it is executives who are faced with the complex task of forming and leading these groups.

> Target audienceKey benefitsKey topicsMeet the staff

To start with, they need to create a working environment that is conducive to high levels of performance while dealing with questions such as: How do I convince people to follow my lead? How can I influence the actions of others? How do I affect my employees? How can I solve conflicts within the team?

Based on these and similar questions, participants in this German language program will analyze their leadership styles, discover their weaknesses and strengths, and work out practical solutions using leadership cases based on their experiences. A feedback tool will help them evaluate their leadership styles. On request, the results can be discussed during individual coaching discussions.

As Englisch language alternative we recommend the program „Leading People and Teams“ (LPT). To continue learning and build on FvM we recommend the German language programs „Change Management Seminar“ (CMS), „Führungskraft als Coach“ (FkC) und „Leistungsmanagement: Führung, Resilienz, Stressmanagement“ (LM).

Participants have at least three years of leadership experience and want to achieve above-average performance with their people and teams. They want to exchange experiences with colleagues from other companies and obtain new incentives for their behavior as a business leader.
