Grow your leadership qualities with a team leadership course
As a leader, you need to set the direction, provide energy and connect with your team. But do you know what type of leader you are and how your behavior impacts others?
Mobilizing People is a highly experiential leadership development program which lets you explore who you are, how effective your team leadership style is and what happens below the surface of team dynamics.
You will complete this leadership training with a clear sense of how to energize and mobilize people to reach a common goal, through authentic and effective leadership.
You'll be equipped to bring out the best in others, your team... and yourself!
Best team leadership program to realize your team and personal potential!
Your quest to become a more effective team leader will take you through 9 days of intense experiential learning at IMD, in the Swiss Alps and back on our campus again.
Concise lectures and presentations introduce you to key concepts and frameworks that deepen the central process of learning from experience.
Whether you’re in the classroom with faculty, debriefing with a coach or up in the mountains with peers, you’ll be applying these guiding principles: undergo deep experiential learning, develop self-awareness and practice “change begins with me”.
Learning in teams
Team dynamics are the core focus of this program and the building blocks of organizations and businesses, so most of your learning happens in small and larger teams.
Integrated approach to coaching
Opening up to coaches, faculty and peers, you’ll experiment with different team leadership situations. You’ll benefit from one-on-one and team coaching. As you progress, you refine your self-awareness, understand others better and grasp what happens below the surface, when teams interact. You develop a clear idea of how you can leverage your personality and experience to become a more authentic and effective leader.
