Leadership from Inside-out – Being an Exemplary Leader for Intercultural Teams

Training Course

11-17 September 2017 | Creative Space, Hollókő, Hungary

It is an intensive experience-based programme that will enable you to explore key leadership and cultural concepts and theories (e.g. situational leadership, Hoefstede’s cultural dimension theory) and their associated skills.
Being a leader is a special privilege given by people and it comes with certain responsibilities and expectations. While leaders are aplenty, good leaders are few and far between. Exemplary leaders who understand the sensitivities of different cultures and can effectively bring people together are even harder to come by. With the increasing complexity of issues our societies are facing right now, we need leaders who care about making positive change, starting with themselves. We need leaders who understand the importance of bringing people of different cultures together to build trust, synergy and mutual respect. We need leaders who dedicate their life purpose to creating positive ripple effects that transcends cultures and boundaries. We need leaders who care about growing others to be the best leaders they can be. We believe that authentic leadership should start by looking within oneself – knowing who I am, what I stand for and what my purpose is. Only when we have the answers to these questions should we then look outward to others – who I want to influence, how I lead others and the kind of impact that I create on the people around me. We invite you to take this exciting journey to explore the depths of your inner space with us. Who is this course for? “Leadership from Inside-out” is a training course for trainers, facilitators, youth workers, youth leaders, educators and teachers, who actively work with international / intercultural groups, who want to enable individuals to reach their full potential and who, above all, are keen on developing themselves as the kind of leader that makes a real difference. What will you be doing in the 5-day programme? You will undergo an intensive experience-based programme that will enable you to explore key leadership and cultural concepts and theories (e.g. situational leadership, Hoefstede’s cultural dimension theory) and their associated skills (e.g. observation, feedback, active listening). We will create the space and the context for you to explore the following questions: WHAT defines me? WHAT kind of leader am I? What is my style of leadership? WHAT kind of leader do I want to be? WHAT kind of influence do I have on others? WHAT are my personal biases? WHERE does my source of power come from? HOW do I see people of different cultures? HOW can I bring people of different cultures together? WHAT is my contribution to connecting peoples of the world? There are mainly three main elements that we expect you to have in mind: One, that you should be ready, open and committed to explore within yourself at a deep level, however challenging the journey may get; Two, that you are also responsible for other participants’ learning and growth, not just your own; and Three, that you come with an intention to make a real difference when you go back to your organisation or community. Your learning and transformation should be evident from the way you lead future projects or teams. During the training, you will explore: - leadership concepts and theories - leading and being lead - group dynamics - trust in team members - self-confidence and being/talking in front of the group - intercultural learning - giving and receiving feedback - observing and being observed
