Detailed programme

Programme Design

We support you as you grow in your leadership role. The programme combines our two short-focused programmes: Self-Leadership and The People Manager, giving you opportunities to better manage yourself and others. This is backed up with expert coaching, so that you’re not on your own once the course has finished. You’ll learn how to channel new skills and insights into your new and future roles – so return on investment is guaranteed.

The programme has three key components:

  1. Managing yourself: effective management skills
  2. Managing others: key people management skills
  3. Connecting the dots: coaching and action plan

 

Programme Content

1. Self-Leadership - 2 days

You’ll strengthen your management skills with this active, practical programme of role play, peer feedback and analysis from your faculty. We will help you develop your own unique management style. Our tools give you a better understanding of your own strengths and weaknesses and your impact on others. You’ll gain the skills and approaches to improve your effectiveness.

2. The People Manager - 4 days

This 4-day module will help you to develop all the skills you need to become an effective people manager. The practical course content is made up of case studies, exercises and examples based on sound theory. You’ll be able to put the tools in your own team into practice immediately. After this module, you’ll be ready to manage your team in a smarter way.

3. Connecting the dots with coaching

Coaching helps you to get even more out of your learning – and more out of yourself. Throughout the programme, you’ll get three two-hour coaching sessions from a Vlerick coach. They’ll help you to adapt what you’ve learned to your own circumstances, challenges and opportunities. Working together, you and your coach will set goals and find the best opportunities to bring your learning to bear in your own organisation.

The Vlerick Difference

We have a unique approach to learning, which focuses on bringing theory to life, giving you the skills and insight you need to really make a difference. Spend time on our beautiful campuses, and you become part of one of the most active business communities in Europe, learning in a way that will help you to be a more effective and productive business leader throughout your career. Learning at Vlerick really is an experience far away from traditional classroom learning. You’ll work collaboratively with your faculty and fellow participants to bring your ideas to life in a robust and practical way.

Digital − the new normal in business − will also strengthen your learning process. Our online platform ‘Showpad’ and the use of a tablet grant you access to all of the learning materials anywhere, anytime, and enable you to go beyond note-taking: take pictures of the flipchart during a brainstorming exercise, record a video of a role play, participate in a quick poll, create a Wikipage together … and share them on the spot with your group.

    Would you prefer your staff to go ice fishing or cast their nets on the high seas? It all depends on what you want to achieve as an organisation. In his doctoral thesis, Bart Verwaeren researched which fishing method leads to more radical innovation and how you can stimulate people to do things the way you want them to. Should you give your people bait or a boat?

    This case gives an overview of the diversity evolution that Coca-Cola Enterprises has gone through, and the different phases that the organization knew before reaching an inclusive organizational culture. This gives us the opportunity to encourage a debate regarding inclusive leadership and professional gender equality, specifically meant for women who have the ambition to obtain a middle to senior management position.
