This course is designed to improve the leadership skills of humanitarians who are working in management or coordination roles. It draws on the latest research by authorities such as ALNAP into the skills required to be an effective leader. Sessions combine theory with practical exercises, providing opportunities for participants to develop their skills in a controlled environment.
An on-going case study is used throughout the course enabling trainees to further practise their leadership skills in realistic situations, while considering the challenges faced by senior team members in a humanitarian emergency.
The course also offers participants the opportunity to reflect on their personal leadership skills and outline a personal development plan created with supportive peer coaching.
