In the current fast-changing environment, developing and showing leadership are of great importance to the UT. However, being a manager is never matter-of-course. It is a profession that requires you to be a jack-of-all-trades: reach results as a team, develop a vision, decide on a strategy, cooperate, motivate and coach people, give direction, exert influence, be an entrepreneur, develop and innovate. As a manager you are responsible for the results of professionals; it is your task to stimulate them in their individual and collective development. Powerful leadership involves giving constant direction and energy to people and processes, sometimes against all the odds. The UT thinks it is important to support managers as well as is possible in their development towards competent leaders.
