About the course
Acting as a coach, executives address the central requirement of an agile leadership: they see themselves as a service provider for their employees. Important is leadership at eye level with the goal of allowing employees to act and decide in a self-organized and responsible manner. In the role of a coach, managers concentrate on the resources of their team.
