Young Leadership Course

In the cooperative sector it is not only a question of the members’ authority, but especially the way in which it can be shaped: expressiveness. This applies to agricultural organizations and also for water boards and political parties, for example. It is very important for the sector to have good managers now and in the future, who can do their bit. The Young Leadership Course is the first step for young potential drivers to become proficient in the drivers profession. This will create a breeding ground for managers, who in future will be able to take over the torch from the current generation of drivers.

In this course three themes are central:

– The management of organizations;

– The social context in which this happens;

– The person behind the driver.

The participants are preferably between 20 and 35 years old, have administrative and social interest and are willing to invest in their own development.

For dates of the next edition, please contact our secretariat.
The work forms are very varied. In addition to presentations by initiators and theoretical sections, the participants mainly work themselves. An individual trajectory takes place in the form of two coaching conversations, in which personal ambitions, personal and managerial qualities and the determination of personal learning goals can be addressed.
