St.Galler Management & Leadership Summer School | English

Holistic qualification in 2 × 4 days - The program for professionalism in management

The Management & Leadership Summer School is a unique training option for all managers who would like to engage with new ways of thinking, acting and leading.
In 2 × 4 days, this compact, holistic program equips leaders to deal with new management roles. It takes place at a time of year when the absence of very busy managers from work is most easily tolerated, namely in the summer. The program’s design has a scientific basis: the system-oriented management theory, St.Gallen's management model and the TRANSFORM! model. The content comprises themes and methods which are compatible with one another and are based on an integrated, holistic approach.​
