The Fundamentals of Effective Leadership

The workshop will introduce to you fundamental, theory-based principles of successful leadership and teamwork and will provide you with practical strategies. After an overview of the main theories and models of professional leadership, we analyze your role as a leader (e.g., your interaction with student assistants, diploma students or interns) and discuss strategies for improvement of your leadership skills. Finally, we develop viable strategies for an effective cooperation with your supervisor. You will have the opportunity to exchange views on your individual experiences and your individual concerns in a moderated and practice-oriented discussion.
