Information about seminar

Wherever people meet, psychology is involved. The "theory of the soul" is nothing other than perceiving and correctly assessing the behavior of the other person.

For managers, therefore, it can only be an advantage to have the basics of psychological knowledge. After all, professional experience and common sense are often not enough to guide employees, unite different types of people in a team and resolve conflicts.

In many cases, however, corporate psychology is not so easy to implement: Depending on the situation, people's understanding, feelings and behavior may differ. Their actions may then seem strange or contradictory to outsiders; in any case, they are difficult to interpret. What the person thinks, what exactly he wants, and what goals he is pursuing remain unclear to others.

However, if employees feel understood on a deeper level, they will generally be more satisfied. As a supervisor, you can generate more motivation and performance in others by arousing positive emotions.

In addition to professional competence, developing a good knowledge of human nature can be a decisive key to success. In order to familiarize you with this complex topic, you will receive a solid introduction in our management seminar and learn the most important basics. Among other things, the following points will be covered:

  • Increasing your self-awareness
  • Your effect on others - as a person and as a leader
  • Explanation of the terms "id, ego, superego" according to Sigmund Freud
  • Suggestion, trance and hypnosis - what do these techniques mean and how are they used?
  • Test psychology
  • How can I use psychological insights in my leadership role?
  • How do I know what the employees in the company or department think, want and how do I conduct constructive employee discussions?

Thanks to a small group size with a maximum of nine participants, this leadership training is tailored to the individual learning needs of each participant. During the two-day training, you will learn how to deal with various problems and how to react to them adequately - from a psychological point of view.

The leadership training is has many practical exercises and versatile group work.

Social competence and emotional intelligence are often underestimated in business. However, certain human behavior patterns repeat themselves in everyday working life and those who see through them know how to act better. The psychology seminar will strengthen your ability to include the emotions of your employees in the work process, to use them and finally to control them. In this way, you will not only succeed in optimizing your leadership behavior, but you will also be able to better organize and implement future learning and change processes in the company.

The leadership seminar gives you the opportunity to exchange ideas with our trainer and other participants, to get direct feedback and to benefit from collegial case consulting.
