This course provides new, engaging tools designed to help you become a more effective leader. Using the ‘four frames’ model of leadership, the course explains how to choose your leadership behavior strategically and respond to context in an agile manner. It provides structured opportunities for you to reflect on challenges, share ideas, and strengthen your abilities. Further, it will reveal your tendencies for ‘framing’ leadership situations and help you identify your blind spots. Across three weeks you will complete 7 modules presented in compelling 20-minute lessons designed to fit your schedule. Based on a proven curriculum from The Maxwell School of Syracuse University, USA, this course is facilitated by Humentum and Syracuse University. The Maxwell School was ranked first overall in a number of academic disciplines related to Public Management in 2019.
Listen to Humentum's SocialEx podcast with Tosca Bruno-van Vijfeijken.
