The Management Teams & Leadership module is built along the guiding principles of military leadership to operate in a dynamic environment:
- TRUST: Trust as an overarching foundation
- CONNECT: Continuous Personal Development of Leaders
- DIRECT: Purpose-Led Leadership; Everything revolves around the team
- ENABLE: Ability to lead in a Comprehensive Way
Often the armed forces are still seen as a strict chain of command organization and obviously under crisis circumstances this can be the case. However, it takes excellent servant leadership skills and a true sense of purpose to operate in a military environment, often a VUCA (Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) one, and create the level of trust that people want to follow their leader. In many aspects the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990’s had the same impact on the military as the financial crisis of 2008 had on the business world. A radically changing operating environment requires a true transformation of leaders and their organization and that is exactly what the military did. We invite you to learn from more than 29 years of hard lessons learned!
How you will learn
During this module you will gain access to world’s leading best practices in the military environment. This means that you will work closely with your peers and have a constant loop of feedback and reflection. In order to maximize the impact of the program, we ask you to reserve a few hours to prepare and think before and after. During the Management Teams & Leadership module, we pay special attention to your own leadership challenges. Our executive coach Ms. Bercan Günel will supervise the group on this aspect. Complemented with real life experiences from the military, assignments, presentations, group work and inspirational diner speeches will make this a unique and senior leadership program.
