Managers are used to being on the front line, dealing with change, and having to make decisions. Yet, the challenges they are facing now during the COVID-19 crisis are unparalleled, even fot the most experienced among them.
WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management is one of the top addresses for Executive Education in Germany. Having recognized a need for support in crisis management with its target group, the school will be offering the open online program “Leading Beyond the Crisis” to managers with at least ten years of leadership experience starting November 13. Interacting closely in small teams, the participants will develop strategies to cope with the challenges of the current crisis. They will discuss their individual problems, gain new perspectives through inspiring expert lectures, and, under the guidance of experienced coaches, find new approaches and methods for necessary transformations. The small-group workshops will allow participants frank discussions on their individual situations.
“One of the main topics will be resilience. It is the ability to recover quickly from a crisis, which can be trained by both people and enterprises,” explains Dr. Rebecca Winkelmann, Managing Director Executive Education at WHU.
The online format of this intensive leadership training fits the busy schedules of the participants and the current travel restrictions of many companies. The three-hour sessions will take place in a virtual format on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons.
