Managing yourself, Leading others

The path to optimal self-management and resilience


    If you want to lead others, it’s best to start with yourself. The first step is to know what you want. Your personal goals should be in tune with your professional goals. From this will result the desire to perform well and the ambition to make a contribution to the overall results of the company. To support this performance-orientation, there are leadership tools you can use to improve your effectiveness. These include good working techniques. Using your time correctly and avoiding time traps. Techniques for holding meetings. Sensible ways to use communication technologies. Setting priorities. The right way to delegate responsibility. Using networks and cooperative partners. How to motivate yourself and deal with doubt. Project management.

    All these tools of leadership should help you to optimally contribute to your company and to increase your effectiveness by optimizing the use of your time. Parallel to this, you also need to make time for private goals and family.


    Participants are younger managers, junior managers with experience, specialists and young talented employees who want to balance working hard with their private lives in an optimal way. Through the right use of their skill set and resources, they want to optimize their performance for their company.


    The more efficient you use your time and skill set at work, the more time will be left over for relaxing, private time and family. This seminar shows how managing yourself should be approached, how others can be motivated and what leadership tools can help achieve this balance.
