Leadership Skills for the Non-Academic Job Market

A workshop offered by the Bonn Graduate Center

Leadership is not for the chosen few at the top, it is for everyone of us. We can lead ourselves, others, or entire organizations. You might not yet value the many experiences you have made at the university, that could help you to succeed in leadership positions outside academia, be it consulting, industry, government or creative services. This workshop will introduce you to the topic of leadership.

Course Description

This workshop will introduce you to the topic of leadership and help you to acquire awareness about your own leadership style, as well as competences of effective leadership. It involves becoming aware of the relevance and power of individual experiences in academia for your future career and the improvement of your “inner” and “outer game” of leadership. While the inner game is concerned with attitude, mindset, and consciousness, the outer game deals with knowledge and skills. The workshop will address both sides of the leadership medal.

While the trainer will draw on his leadership practice in- and outside academia, it is not expected that you as a participant will have practical leadership experience.
