Systemic Leadership Psychology

Master the synthesis of new thinking and practical action.

Our world has become increasingly complex. It is, in fact, more volatile than ever. As developments can no longer be predicted, algorithms help retain control of processes. But how, under such unstable conditions, can you lead yourself and others without developing burnout or falling into self-alienation?

  • Pendulum swings occur more frequently and with greater force.
  • Machines learn faster than humans.
  • Everything is connected.
  • Tomorrow everything may be different.

Scientific basis

The systemic concept of leadership draws on a variety of sources, including epistemology, humanistic psychology, modern systems theory, and cybernetics. Over the past few years, this approach has produced many practical methods and techniques which have proved to be particularly effective in leading teams and organizations. Systemic management is characterized by its circularity, multiperspectivity, resource-orientation, and sustainability.

Aims and benefits

If you want to lead others, you have to be able to lead yourself first. Therefore, this course does more than provide knowledge: it has been created to give participants the opportunity to experience for themselves what they have learned, and to put their newly acquired knowledge into practice, wherever this is appropriate and possible. An atmosphere of intellectual curiosity encourages participants to team up with like-minded individuals and gain new insights together. With this, the course helps them fulfill three important requirements for a successful career, while helping them improve their leadership skills. It also strengthens their self-awareness and equips them with a heightened sense of self-efficacy.

The compact certificate course is designed for

  • experienced and mindful leaders and decision makers aiming to explore new paths to successfully manage teams and organizations under the current and future conditions,
  • individuals looking to prepare for a leadership career without bearing the burden of obsolete lines of thought and action
  • freelancers who are confronted with issues of leadership and consequently wish to broaden their horizons.
