Introduction to Feedback for Effective Leadership

What are the most essential tools for survival by settlers and explorers in worlds that are new to them? This workshop introduces students to exploration and survival in such worlds. It compares challenges faced by explorers throughout the ages and looks at contemporary knowledge of conditions for survival in Jamestown in 1607 and on the Moon in 1969. But this is only the beginning…


In this workshop, you will learn about the principles of leadership and feedback within a setting of teamwork. At the end of the workshop, you will have become familiar with traditional and modern-day types of leadership and you will be able to give and receive effective feedback to and from team members. This experience will help you improve your own ability to work in a team efficiently, so that you will be able to find solutions for (research) questions or challenging assignments more adequately. Along the way, it will be fun to discover these principles by taking a look at one of the world’s most famous team exercises, the Moon Survival Exercise of NASA
