Personal Performance

This 3-part program for executives, ambitious specialists and practitioners deals with the essential topics and skills behind authentic presence, effective communication and smart decision-making, and trains you in them.


Strategy like you apply in chess, team spirit in football and the endurance you need running a marathon – when we talk about management and leadership, we often run into analogies from sports. But what does a manager’s average day really look like? How far does the ideal picture of a dynamic manager, who easily triumphs over the competition, correspond to this reality? Every manager has to deal with aimless meetings, time-consuming answering of emails and the exhausting struggle with internal and external red-tape. But then there are those decisive moments when you need to have your total package of successful management skills ready – whether it’s the appropriate negotiation techniques, skill at leading meetings or the ability to make decisions as the situation calls for. To enhance how you perform at work is the goal of this 9-day advanced training program. Taught by top lecturers with experience, it uses role-playing, video recordings, interactive training, active feedback and other practical-oriented methods.
