Organisations today are characterised by ever-flatter hierarchical structures. Thus, leading people outside of one’s formal line of authority, as for example in matrix organisations or on technical levels, as well as being a reliable internal business partner to peers, is becoming increasingly important. At the same time, this is a very particular challenge.

In this training course, you will take a close look at your individual situation and explore what it takes to act confidently outside of your direct reporting lines. You will learn that clear and appreciative communication has a motivational impact on people’s commitment to their dedicated tasks on the one hand, as well as their trust in you and your leadership skills on the other.
