Leading with Impact

Using different models, the program will challenge participants to work on and further develop their strategy; for their area of responsibility, but also for them personally.

Organizational design as a strategic responsibility will be emphasized and embedded in participants’ leadership practice. They will further their understanding of the German research landscape and Helmholtz’s place within it. The importance of networks will be discussed and how to increase leadership impact. Participants will enhance their change management capabilities and acquire additional tools for their leadership toolbox.

The Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ) by SHL will allow participants to gain insights into their personal leadership style and preferences. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to discuss the results with their trainers in an individual coaching session.

Throughout the program, participants will jointly work on developing Leadership Insights: Questions and insights derived from your actual experiences as leaders, which might be of interest to and shared with other participants and alumni of the Helmholtz Leadership Academy.

During Camp 4 (“Camp on Demand”), all participants will have the opportunity to delve deeper into some of the topics discussed during Camps 1 to 3 as well as to work on their Leadership Insights. Topics and formats will be decided jointly.

In addition, participants of ‘‘Leading with Impact’’ may choose to further drill down on specific topics or issues through virtual ‘‘Deep Dives’’, following Camps 2 and 3.

REQUIREMENTS: For international executives in science, administration and infrastructure who may or may not lead other executives. This includes department heads in the scientific or administrative field, heads of infrastructure facilities and larger project as well as program and topic speakers.
