Leading beyond Authority – Shaping collaboration, driving topics and projects


Program language

This program will be conducted in German.


Who should attend

All employees who drive topics or projects as part of their daily work without formal authority and who are faced with the challenge of convincing and motivating their colleagues and who desire to promote constructive teamwork.


What you learn

The program addresses the challenges teams are facing today: How can you cope with the complexity of today’s work environment, your role and your task? How can you convince your team members and colleagues to engage with your topics and contribute to your project? How can you achieve clarity regarding team goals and desired results and take everyone with you? How can you shape an appreciative and constructive team culture? We will get to the bottom of these and other questions in this program. You will reflect on the challenges of leadership without authority and be able to face them. You will understand your influence on trustful and goal-oriented cooperation and how to establish an appreciative and constructive team culture. You will discover important leadership tools and the basics of agile collaboration and be able to establish the team structure appropriate for the respective project goal.


How you learn

We will discuss approaches that will make you rethink existing structures and try out new ones if necessary. We touch on classic leadership topics such as motivation and persuasiveness and give tips on how to create team culture and (agile) cooperation.


The program includes an intensive self-directed preparation phase, the face-to-face workshop, and a transfer phase including a virtual learning unit.
