Professional Leadership


You have an insight into your personal strengths and weaknesses.

You are able to use different communication and leadership styles.

 You understand how to lead people and processes at the University of Twente.


Topics that will be addressed


You follow the course with colleagues in similar positions within the organization. Your active participation is required. We ask you to share your challenges and pitfalls and at times we will discuss personal matters. All this is done in a safe and confidential environment that we create together.

There will be plenty of opportunities to learn with and from each other. Different tools and frameworks will be presented by the trainers and discussed by all. You will actively explore if and how these models apply to your situation and how they can help you understand your own context. You will learn (new) skills which you will practice during the training. You will try out these skills in your daily work life and reflect on them with other participants throughout and in between modules.


An intake takes place prior to the training. In this, the learning question is defined and a final decision is made as to whether participation is appropriate.

If you do not have hierarchical managerial responsibilities, but you do have to direct or motivate people, check the training Influential coaching, and effective management.
For academic staff, we have the Academic Leadership course.
