“Thanks to the Leadership Transition Programme, I received input to my own (as well as my company’s) action plan, and I now have more clarity and structure in what I do. In this dramatically changing world – in which employee involvement and personal development can make the difference versus the competition – the people manager is becoming increasingly important. In addition to theoretical information, this programme provided easily recognisable case studies and practical exercises to work on, as well as the opportunity to share experiences and tips with fellow participants.”

“The Leadership Transition Programme has meant a lot to me. I was stuck in structures that I had acquired over the years. I've been in a leadership role for 15 years now, and I needed to progress − and this programme has helped me do that.

It’s a high-level programme, with outstanding professors who provide you with new knowledge that you can put directly into practice. Interaction with the other participants is extremely valuable: you get the chance to test out solutions on like-minded colleagues, which means that you can return to the workplace with more confidence and apply what you’ve learned immediately.

I have learned important new approaches, especially in terms of managing employees and recognising and appreciating the variety of leadership roles in the organisation. I’m now implementing these things, and I notice that they are already beginning to bear fruit. I’m still in touch with a number of participants − Vlerick also provides an environment in which you can expand your network in a meaningful way.”

“The Leadership Transition Programme helped me gain more insight into my own leadership skills and to apply them more effectively in practice. After the programme, I was able to successfully lead my organisation through a period of great change and to guide members of my management team in their growth.”

Vlerick expertise in People Management & Leadership

  1. Happiness at work is a habit you can practice

    We all have to work. However, the key to finding happiness on the job is to feel good at work. There are countless benefits to happiness at work, both for the employee and the company, as scientific research has repeatedly shown. According to "The Happiness Advantage” by the American researcher Shawn Achor, happy employees are up to 31% more productive and their creativity is three times higher. With the support of ESF Flanders, Vlerick Business School and HR service provider Attentia have therefore developed a new tool which wants to promote happiness at work.
  2. Creativity is not result, it’s a process

    Creativity is all about generating as much ground-breaking ideas as possible. You put up idea boxes in the canteen, organise regular brainstorming sessions and your organisation will be brimming with creativity, on the forefront of innovation in no time. Right? Not quite. “Statistics show that only few ideas actually get implemented. Granted, not all ideas are feasible, but implementation often fails because organisations lack a proper innovation process,” explains Professor Katleen De Stobbeleir.
