Concept

It's not easy being a boss today, or it's at least harder than it used to be. It no longer suffices to simply »call the shots«. You need to persuade people. Employees set extremely strict standards as far as the quality of management, professional skills and ethical behaviour are concerned. It's only when these standards are met and achieved that employees can be motivated to achieve their very best and turn visions into reality, even in companies with flat hierarchies.

In this 4-day seminar we will be discussing the most important general management topics and instruments that are needed in order to perform the increasingly complex tasks of executive management.
