'I recently participated in the Self-Leadership programme. In particular, this programme helped me get to know myself better – what my strong points are, as well as my weaknesses. Insight into yourself automatically makes you aware of the effect you have on other people, who interact with you from another frame of reference. The programme is conducted in a group setting – which has the advantage that a lot of things can be taught in the form of concrete role play, and also that the interaction with others gives an extra dimension to the subject matter. At a certain moment, we even began coaching each other. I especially remember the open atmosphere and the vulnerability with which my fellow participants shared their opinions, which made it a super-instructive experience. Ultimately, you yourself are the most fascinating toy, and during this programme you receive a large part of the operating instructions.'

'During the Self-Leadership programme’s 2 intensive days, you are immersed in a variety of theories that give you greater insight into your own style of thinking and interacting with others. Concrete work situations and discussions are sketched out as practical contexts – and then the majority of the programme is dedicated to applying the theories in group discussions, game situations and observations of your fellow participants.

First of all, I learned a lot about myself – this programme has really helped me gain deeper insight into my own strengths and style of interacting with others. I’ve become more aware of myself and my relations to my colleagues. Right after the programme, I noticed how this understanding immediately helps you evaluate situations and discussions better – which also increases your poise and self-confidence.

The Self-Leadership programme was an investment in myself, and it serves as the perfect starting point for my further professional development. Last but not least, I would like to call attention to the personable and interactive presentation style of the Vlerick professors – which certainly played a large part in meeting my high expectations.'

'After the 2-day Self-Leadership programme, I felt enormously stronger. In addition to trying out a solid academic framework with immediate practical applications, I gained a lot of useful knowledge for improving my team’s job performance, and my own too!
I have rarely experienced a training programme as complete and useful as this one − I recommend it highly. In addition, the interaction with the other participants from a wide variety of viewpoints is more than enriching in itself. A bonus that’s added for free!
If all managers and team leaders would follow this programme, we’d have a greatly expanded satisfied employee-employer network in no time. Let the economy grow! We’re ready!'

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.
