What does it mean to be a leader? This seminar introduces you to the process of leadership and the vast array of skills needed to be a leader in a variety of contexts. We will cover the fundamental skills that will shape your leadership style, including emotional intelligence, team dynamics, negotiating, solving problems, motivating others, giving feedback and intercultural communication. You will also evaluate your leadership potential by taking the CliftonStrengths assessment, which helps you reflect on how your talents can build your leadership reflexes.

The workshop series covers different modules that span over seven weeks where you must commit approximately 3.5 hours per week. Activities include working through case studies, role-plays, group discussions, and self-reflection. Upon completion of this series, you will receive a certificate, have your personal CliftonStrengths Top 5 report, and a personal plan for your leadership development.

Great leaders negotiate based on principles. Rather than understanding negotiations as an opportunity to defeat an adversary, they work as a team together with their counterparts, to increase the value of the outcome for every stakeholder. They persuade, but within a framework of truthfulness, respect, and social responsibility, because their goal is not a short-term personal victory, but a long-term fruitful relationship that benefits everyone.
 
In this workshop, we will emphasize the importance of continuously improving our negotiation skills, regardless of our area of expertise. Also, we will introduce the principled negotiations model, increase our ability to identify opportunities for negotiation, and become more persuasive negotiators. Finally, the workshop will offer an opportunity to apply these concepts in practical simulations.
