Two-part program for experienced executives with responsibility for strategy and leadership seeking to acquire state-of-the-art knowledge in central areas of future-oriented corporate management.


Mastering the entire range of leadership and management challenges is essential for executive managers, board members, CEOs, entrepreneurs, and all senior executives. This program supports participants in this task and equips them with practice-tested and implementation-oriented management know-how.

The seminar addresses the most important skills in strategic management and all the increasingly important leadership qualities. Furthermore, dividing the program into two parts allows a more comprehensive view of the current challenges in modern corporate management.


Strategic Management

Clear and precise strategies can offer competitive advantages in the future. Strategies therefore need to point out today’s necessities that will lead to future success. But how can we achieve this in an increasingly complex environment in which companies are repeatedly confronted with unexpected and drastic external factors? A systematic and methodical approach helps identifying, analyzing and dealing with all strategically relevant issues.

Leadership Management

Leadership is a very broad field with numerous different doctrines, concepts, and instructions. Maintaining an overview can be difficult and using only one particular "recipe" often falls short. Here, the St. Gallen Leadership Concept comes into play: it classifies the different approaches and offers a structure for developing a leadership style based on one's own strengths. In addition, it enables constant adaptation to these requirements that arise from superordinate strategies, guidelines, and goals. In this part of the seminar, executives with responsibility for results receive practical guidance for effective and results-based leadership.
