The course supports students in finding their own unique potential and serves as a platform for exploring and engaging in key areas of personal leadership and transformation with a direct interface to the student’s own professional development and other areas of life. Participation does not require a formal leadership position but improves the ability to act as a leader.
- Enabling vs. restrictive beliefs and stories
- Emotional intelligence
- Balancing between being and doing modes
- Personal triggers of behaviour
- Presence and mindfulness as a means to bring clarity into action
- Whole person paradigm
- Intention and experimental mode of action as a path towards trust and results

Depending on the implementation, learning takes place in contact lessons, independent studies, individual work, group and peer discussions and assignments as well as individual mindfulness practice. The course includes the assessment of one’s own learning.
If students have acquired the required competence in previous work tasks, recreational activities or on another course, they can show their competence via a demonstration and thus progress faster through their studies. More information and instructions for recognising and validating prior learning (RPL) are available at MyNet.
Will be specified later.
Other literature/material assigned by the teachers.
The studies and learning assignments seek to mirror everyday business in corporations and other organisations. The learning sessions may include guest lectures, visits and/or real-life cases. Students apply their learning within their current work environment.
Starting level and linkage with other courses
Assessment criteria - grade 1
The student becomes aware of his/her own thinking patterns and forms of behaviour. The student realises the influence of their own beliefs and their emotional mode on relationships, action and results on a general level, and finds ways to express him/herself genuinely and constructively in less challenging situations. The student increases his/her own resilience and finds ways to stay grounded despite shortcomings and incompleteness. The student can apply tools to take responsibility for his/her own professional life and situations and recognises their own vision of the natural mode of operation in different situations.
Assessment criteria - grade 3
In addition to previous competences (grade 1), the student is aware of his/her own thinking patterns, emotional modes and forms of behaviour and recognises their connection to everyday organisational drama. The student realises the potential of using everyday life as an opportunity to practice self-awareness and growth in a curious and mindful manner. The student discovers resources behind all kinds of feelings and is able to put them into intended action. The student realises new ways of becoming an organic part of organisational culture, recognising his/her own change and finding new openings to serve and promote organisational goals
Assessment criteria - grade 5
In addition to grades 1 and 3, the student is aware of everyday organisational drama, its drivers as well as his/her own and others involvement in it. The student is able to see more clearly the challenges and potential of different situations. The student recognises his/her own patterns to control difficult situations and is able to alter his/her approach and, based on the situation, express oneself in a candid and constructive manner. Based on his/her own experience and insight, the student is able to understand and empathise with others while honouring personal borders and responsibility. The student profoundly understands that she/he provides their own security, control and approval, which enables freedom to be authentic, while at the same time appreciating and respecting challenges.
