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. Managing yourself: Self-Leadership - 2 days

The highly interactive nature of this programme allows participants to reflect and act upon their learnings. All diagnostic tools,
case studies and role plays which form the foundation of this programme are based on research by Vlerick faculty. By the end of the programme, you’ll have the skills and approaches to show more effective behaviour and get to better results. You’ll have a better understanding of your own strengths and weaknesses – and what the impact of your actions is on others. You’ll be ready to manage yourself in a smarter way.

Module 1: Your personal effectiveness
Module 2: Your impact on others

2. Managing others: The People Manager - 4 days

This programme tackles 4 main roles that a people manager must master. Always based on research, the content is made eminently practical via case studies, role plays, and examples. The tools and models shared by faculty are directly applicable in your company. In addition to learning from our faculty, you can gain inspiration from your fellow participants by sharing ideas and experiences.

Module 1: The People Manager as manager of the inflow
Module 2: The People Manager as a career manager
Module 3: The People Manager as a communicator and coach
Module 4: The People Manager as a motivator and performance manager

3. Individual coaching & action plan 

Coaching helps you to get even more out of your learning – and more out of yourself. Throughout the programme, you’ll get two two-hour coaching sessions with a Vlerick coach. Working together, you and your coach will set goals and find the best opportunities to bring your learning to your own organization.

When you come to Vlerick, you step away from your usual routine and gain a wider perspective. You discover how to tackle challenges, turn your knowledge into action and apply your skills in your workplace. You learn from faculty who are experts in their fields – and from a diverse group of peers.

  1. What is... your reflected best self?

    We often get the advice to just be ourselves. However, it requires a large amount of self-knowledge to know who you are authentically. Your reflected best self is your individual mental picture of the qualities and characteristics that are on display when you are at your best. But how do you construct this mental picture? And what are the trigger events that contain new pieces of information to add to the picture? Professor and Dean Marion Debruyne explains.
  2. What is... the competency trap?

    Is it better to invest in further developing and refining your strengths, or should you go for the tough track and overcome your weaknesses? Most of us prefer the former. Because it feels so much better to further develop what you are already good at. But by overinvesting in our strengths, we also take less time to learn other important new skills. Professor Katleen De Stobbeleir explains how to overcome this so-called competency trap.
