Leadership is one of the most widely used concepts in business. Everybody talks about it, and many organizations claim to nurture leadership as an important skill in leadership development. However, there is no consensus what it takes to be a good leader; and it has not helped that leadership has been mystified over the past decade, making this an almost magical quality only a selected caste of individuals has access to.

Quite recently, new economic and social developments have brought about anew class of knowledge workers who challenge the conventional leadership modeland re-think common ways of working. Importantly, the one-way hierarchal relations between leaders and followers are increasingly questioned.

In the course of this seminar, we are going to develop the key elements ofa new and practical leadership framework that takes account of what has worked in the past, and will introduce new thinking to address the challenges of the future.

Learning outcomes

The objective of this seminar is to jointly develop a practical approach to leadership.

We will let ourselves inspire by speakers from industry, a non-profit organization and an experienced leadership trainer from the United Nations. We will work on real business cases and see how we can practically tackle the leadership challenges involved.

We want to avoid “how to” cookbook approaches which apply same-size-fits-all solutions to each and every challenge.

Attendance requirements

The full course attendance is mandatory.

Teaching/learning method(s)

We are going to use a mix of brief lectures by experienced executives and leadership experts and group work on business cases.


(no written exam)

Attendance is a firm requirement of this seminar as many of the learning experiences take place during class and through interactions with peers.
