Olivia Adins - Transuniverse Group
Director

“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.”

General Manager

“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.”

  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.
