Good leaders know how to lead themselves first

This 6-week course has been developed to make you a proactive and effective leader of your personal life and for your teams and be able to deal with challenging situations.

Week 1: Leadership starts with you

You will meet your instructor and establish a comfortable group. You will learn the basics of leadership theory, set a personal goal and reflect on your own strengths, weaknesses and values. 

Week 2: Begin with the end in mind

As a leader it is essential to know where you are going, and communicate this effectively.  We will dive into vision creation, persuasion, charisma and communication. We practice communication in engaging ways!

Week 3: We, not I (Forming)

Leadership is not about you, it's about the team. We'll focus on creating the right team next to you by selecting and interviewing applicants. We perform a famous leadership challenge, and learn how to form a team through a Team Canvas.

Week 4: Seek first to Understand, then to be Understood (Storming)

Teamwork involves conflict. Your goal as a leader is to solve and minimise. We will learn the essentials of conflict resolving, delivering proper feedback and communication challenges. 

Week 5: Think win-win (Norming)

After the Storming phase, the team will have more clarity and purpose. The leader creates the culture together with the team, and coaches individuals. We'll practice different leadership styles to be more resilient!

Week 6: Sharpen the Saw (Performing & Adjourning)

The last session includes a wholesome challenge to practice leadership under pressure! We learn how to perform efficiently with our team, and debrief in depth!

Students' Testimonials

Don't just take our word for it

This course is most optimal for students that aspire or are currently in a leadership position. Whether it is leading a small project team within a student association, start-up, initiative, or aspiring future leader, this course will empower you to be an organized, inspiring and effective leader.

The content was engaging and an absolute addition to my learning experience. The amount of study material was sometimes challenging next to my regular studies. The more time you are able to invest in the preparation of the learning material, the more you will get out of it!

The content was very engaging as you learned a lot about different leadership styles and were encouraged to challenge yourself and try new things.

Nicolaas has a passion for self-development and public speaking. In 2019, he set up the EL Association to bring a new message to university students. This message is radically honest, entails stepping outside the comfort zone and creates a sense of belonging. After an amazing board year with the team, he biked from Rotterdam to Zurich to pursue his exchange. In Switzerland he set up the first international branch of Extraordinary Life. Niek is characterised by going against the grain, caring for improvement and discipline.

Georgia is a Master’s graduate in Marketing at Erasmus School of Economics. To express her passion for teaching, Georgia is a teaching assistant at Rotterdam School of Management and a trainer at Lifeversity. For Georgia, personal development is a choice we all have to make to take the right activities to evolve and become better versions of ourselves. She believes in the aphorism that we have all the assets to develop whomever we want, and this process needs to start now. Therefore, her heart bravely follows the challenge to live her life as she desires. Are you ready to start your personal development journey?
