OVERVIEW 12 week online training

The 12-week interactive online course, for NGO staff and humanitarians, focuses on developing leadership skills through practicing and reflection. The training is for NGO and Humanitarian managers and leaders working with an NGO or humanitarian organisation, who want to develop their leadership skills and become an effective leader. Before the training, participants start with a learning needs assessment, which will include a 360-degree feedback collected from managers, colleagues, and supervisors.  The aim is to identify the available leadership capacities and the learning needs. This will be a starting point to reflect on your own leadership skills, develop your own learning objectives and a personal development plan, with the aim to become an effective leader. The training will be offered through a mix of training methods, including discussions, assignments in the online learning environment, reflecting on individual experience and peer group support. In the online learning environment, you can expect to be actively learning where your own practical experience will be used as a basis for the training; therefore, you are expected to come with your own examples. Through practicing and reflecting, you will discover different leadership styles, your own preferred style, your areas for development and finally choose which style is needed in different situations. To ensure in depth learning this training includes 5 hours individual coaching

Training methodology 

The course will start with a learning needs assessment, 2 weeks before the start of the training. After registration and confirmation, you will receive a link to the online learning management system of Imarah consultancy, where you will do assignments in order to collect information about your training, experiences and learning needs regarding team leadership. The aim is  to identify learning needs and ensure learning needs regarding leadership are addressed during the training.  The online live training sessions will be once a week on Mondays 13.00 to 17.00 central European time. Any theory which is needed, will be given as a homework assignment to read and prepare.  In the virtual classroom we will reflect on the theory and focus on developing leadership skills and competencies, through discussions, assignments, linking theory with practice, and reflecting on individual experience, where your own practical working experience  will be used.  Participants will be actively working on assignments in the online learning management system and will be supported with feedback. Self-reflection is an important process to develop your leadership skills. Self-reflection is like looking in the mirror and assessing yourself. It assists to develop critical thinking, reflecting on own performance with the aim to improve your leadership performance. Self-reflection will therefore play an important role throughout the learning. Assignments, peer group and individual coaching will support in the self-reflection and the development of your leadership competencies. To ensure in depth learning, coaching will continue after the last online training session. The number of participants will be limited to a maximum of 12 per training, as to ensure the active participation in the virtual training environment. Reliable internet is essential.

“I learned many things during the training “Being an effective team leader”. I also did many exercises and assignments, which was the interesting part, as I was practicing  active listening, communication, conflict management etc. The feedback on my leadership skills from 5 persons at work collected anonymously was also very interesting.
