Leadership in Service Organisations
This course provides insights into the different dimensions, situations and problems of leadership. The aim is to give specialised understanding of the specific conditions of service organisations, such as close customer contacts and focus on service meetings, and how these conditions affect leadership. Furthermore, you will be familiarised with approaches and tools to develop your own role as a targeted, accountable and reflective leader.
In the course, situations and problems from different themes are discussed and analysed. The main focus is to give an insight into organisational structures, external and internal efficiency, environments, group processes, motivation, leadership and personal development. Through situation-based learning and practical examples, you will understand the consequences of different theoretical approaches in practice.
