Programme overview

Effective leadership in the age of globalisation and digitalisation always begins with the effective management of the self. Unfortunately, this often gets neglected as life’s pressures and challenges start to mount. True inspiration and innovation can only happen when we become conscious of and question our irrational assumptions, automatic thoughts and potentially harmful patterns of behaviour. In this seminar, which is based on behavioural therapist Jens Corssen’s renowned philosophy “The Self-Developer”, you will gain valuable insights into ways to transform your attitude and leave the victim mentality behind. As a Self-Developer, unpleasant situations become training exercises, enhancing both your ability to manage your self and show resilience and fortitude when under stress.
