EMBA Psychodynamics of Leadership programme

  • gives you a chance to examine and reform yourself and your management
  • deepens your understanding of the phenomena of human behavior and management
  • prepares you for challenging interpersonal communications in working life

The programme creates a way for you to improve your self-knowledge, self-understanding and self-appreciation. You obtain means to understand the phenomena of the management world and build a solid foundation for making observations and for organising and processing them in your work. You will learn ways to express, receive and understand your experiences and opinions in a constructive way.

Programme contents

The programme contains three two-day contact teaching seminars (six days in total). The main mode of study is small-group work, where you have a unique opportunity to observe yourself as a person and a leader. In the group you will enter the field of management at several experiential levels. The group is a place where you can share the challenges of management, listen to others and be there for them. Each small group is lead by an experienced psychologist or psychotherapist. 

Under the guidance of the group leaders you will learn to recognise and understand the dynamic processes of working life and to apply what you have learned in your daily duties. Sharing peer experiences and learning from other participants is the essence of the programme. The expert lectures provide stimuli and ideas to self-leadership and management of work. You keep internalising and processing what you have learned in the contact teaching sessions by writing a learning journal.
