Title: Agile Leadership in the digital age

In the course, participants will deal intensively with agile leadership. Because Agility is not only a concept for organizations, but a mindset for every individual on a global scale. Agility is about fast adaptation to changing circumstances. It is about focus on people and their needs, be it customers or organizational members. It is about creating space for innovation and creativity. During the course the different types of leadership will be examined and the term agility will be discussed intensively. International differences are taken into account and the role of agile leadership in international context is also highlighted. The participants will have the chance to try out and get to know different tools by themselves. The digital world and how leadership changes in it will also be part of the course. The main focus is to know and name the students’ own competencies and strengths and to identify their own leadership strengths to be able to work successfully in global contexts.
