What you'll learn
- You identify talents based on their leadership capabilities and future potential
- You avoid promoting people lacking leadership skills
- You fill your succession bench with people every other company will envy you off
- You use the 58-page workbook as a guide during & reference after completing the course
- You use methods from wildlife to find the best leaders - methods tested for millions of years
- You learn that most packs, clans, or herds in wildlife are led by female leaders
- Openness to think and act 'outside the box' and leave old paths when finding and developing talents & leaders
- Openness to engage with learnings from wildlife and translate them into actions for us humans
This is an INSPIRATIONAL course to give anyone working as a manager or HR professional a new perspective on how to select new leaders!
This course is NOT a TRADITIONAL "How to do talent management"-course! This course well make you RE-THINK and RE-SHAPE the way you find and select talents!
You could try the 17th new psychological test or the 12th assessment center method to find your talents to become new managers. But we could also learn from those who have been successfully finding, selecting, and promoting their next generation of leaders for 40 million years: lions, elephants, and the like.
This talent management course lets you
rethink your approach to select new leaders and
focus on what is really important for successful future leaders!
You will pay attention to the skills that determine leadership success and use the methods of (for instance) young lions and how they learn from an early age what is expected of a 'Lion King'. (By the way: Prides of lions are led by females...)
THIS COURSE IS MADE FOR
you, if you are
Executive who is responsible for the selection and development of new/young executives
Manager who trains prospective managers (= talents) and who wants to ensure that they can really lead
HR experts in the human resources department who are responsible for talent management, learning & development, and the promotion of young talents
Employees without management responsibilities who want to know how they can improve their chances of being discovered as a talent and recommended for a management career
>>> THIS COURSE IS NOT (!) FOR YOU <<<
if you are looking for new tools like Big 5, DISC, etc.
YOUR BENEFITS OF ATTENDING THIS COURSE
You see in which areas your talent management is already focusing on the relevant critical leadership criteria and where you might need to adjust it
In the future, you will pay even more attention to the vital leadership skills when selecting talents for management positions, instead of being blinded by technical or rhetorical skills
You leverage established methods from the animal kingdom (proven to be successful for millions of years) to prepare new managers for their tasks in the most effective way
You establish a healthy feedback culture for new (and seasoned) leaders to help them lead even better
You prevent people from being promoted who have no leadership potential (yet)
You avoid the promotion of people who will flourish much better in an expert role
You ensure that successors are developed and that your 'succession bench' is filled with top-class talents - made by your organization
When a manager leaves, you no longer have to desperately call head hunters to find a successor because you always have candidates available who can take on management responsibility at short notice
THE IDEA OF THIS COURSE & WHY IT WAS RECORDED DURING A SAFARI
Because for millions of years, packs of animals live in groups with clear leadership responsibilities and succession methods
Leaders of a pack or a herd are tested daily for their ability to lead their group - it's not a one way-street
Leaders of an animal group only remain in their role if they ensure that the pack or herd is safe and well fed
Animals do not accept bad leadership
Group dynamics can be seen in animal groups as much as in groups of humans - while there is (in most cases) no 'political agenda' negatively influencing the behavior
Bad leadership in animals usually leads to the death of the other animals - therefore, only animals with all leadership capabilities are eligible to lead! There are no dazzlers, gabblers, or people who only got promoted due to their connections
The examples from wildlife and how 'talent management' works in the animal kingdom show us exactly how we can improve our talent management in businesses and organisations.
The manager of the future has to be
agile like a cheetah,
perseverant like an African Wild Dog
and level-headed like an elephant!

>>>>>>> ENGLISH BIO AND PROFILE <<<<<<<
My promise to you and all my clients since I became self-employed in 2008 as a trainer, coach and author of leadership and communication is:
"Every single element of a course must create value for your and be ready to be implemented easily"
This means for you:
1) You'll learn methods and tips you can immediately implement
2) You'll have step-by-step instructions available, so you'll know exactly what you need to do to be successful
3) All content is designed to give you maximum results with the least effort possible. I won't waste your time with "bla bla"
4) You can always contact me directly to answer questions, share suggestions and criticisms.
Since 2008, I am working with executives and entrepreneurs from over 30 countries, advising, coaching and training them to become better leaders.
This includes (sorry, only released in German) publishing the book "Management Practice for Engineers and IT Experts" (Original title: "Führungspraxis für Ingenieure und IT-Experten"), published by Springer Verlag.
I only teach what I use myself and know from practical application: I set goals using OKR, I help clients achieve their goals with OKR and I train leaders in leading their teams with OKR - because I truly believe in this concept.
Prior to working as a coach I was an entrepreneur in the IT industry for 15 years, and also spend some time as a manager at Accenture and mid-sized companies.
I was born, raised, and started by business in Germany, before I moved to Cape Town in 2008. I am an avid Ultra Marathon runner and you can see me on the roads and trails of almost all the cities I travel to - while my favourite will always be running along Table Mountain.
You, my students on Udemy, can always reach out to me via the Udemy platform and I am happy to answer your questions.
