On the subject
Do you still work in a group or already in a team? Can critical topics be addressed in your project, or is everyone nice to each other? Successful teams have a high level of social competence of all participants with regard to communication, the design of (intercultural) cooperation, motivation or team dynamics. In many organizations, project work is not a formal, but an informal management task. Another focus is on the design of leadership and the clarification of roles. Cooperation must also be optimised, e.g. with the "Radical Collaboration" approach. Project work is a conflict-exposed activity that always brings about change. Therefore, conflict management and dealing with change round off the content of this seminar.

You can also contribute your own project situations. You are expected to be willing to actively deal with the topic on both a factual and a personal level.
By attending the seminar "Methodology and Tools" or an equivalent seminar you are optimally prepared for this training.
The internationally recognized certifications in project management according to the IPMA® guidelines demonstrate mastery of the three competence areas of practice, people and perspective.
The attendance of the two seminars "Methodology and Tools" and "Leadership and Team" provides an ideal basis for successful certification according to the current IPMA Individual Competence Baseline (ICB4). The book "Project Management Handbook", Springerverlag covers all relevant topics for IPMA certification. The selection and immersion of the topics in the two seminars is based on the requirements of IPMA®.
Are you still working in a group or already in a team? Can critical issues be addressed in your project, or are they all nice to each other? The successful team can not be "made" by project leaders or scrum masters. Much more they rely on a high social competence of all parties involved, in terms of communication, the design of (intercultural) cooperation, motivation or team dynamics. Another focus is on conflict management. Project work is a conflict-exposed activity and a problem of conflicts is that they are prematurely personalized. Through a careful conflict diagnosis, you learn to differentiate between cause and symptom and to process it purposefully.
