Conscious Leadership
No. of Credits: 7.5 ECTS
Credit Level: Master Mandatory
Pre-requisite: Orientation Module
Module Description:
How many inspiring working environments have you been a part of? A team is only as successful as its contributing members. Rather than fusing together diverse talents to arrive at positive and high impact goals, most often, individuals within a team present the most substantial obstacles to the goals. If organizations truly understood, beyond the smooth PR talk, how the inspired team member naturally engenders increased creativity and productivity, the face of business would look dramatically different. In organizations, where a performance-oriented culture and responsible approach are understood to be the foundations of success, it is critical to create an environment of creativity, commitment, trust and collaboration. This module is aimed at training individuals to naturally facilitate such a work atmosphere based on high levels of personal awareness and inspiration.
