Leaders and governors: DMAN Director delivers lecture for undergraduate students
For the new students of the Global Governance and Leadership program at RANEPA Institute for Social Sciences (ISS), school began with a lecture by Director of the Academy of Management of Lower Saxony (DMAN) Harald Becker, who explained to them what a born leader is and how they differ from a formal leader.
The speaker discussed the professions that will be in demand in the near future and the basic skills that young specialists need to have to succeed in the chosen career. He especially highlighted communication skills. Dr. Becker also cited the ability to correctly set the task, convey information to your team, inspire and motivate the team as most important skills for any leader. The expert gave the first-year students some tips on how to overcome the fear of public speaking and stay confident in front of any audience.
The DMAN Director also spoke about a practicum program at the Lower Saxony Management Academy that first-year GGL students will join after their first semester. For two weeks, they will attend classes as well as visit large, medium and small businesses in Germany, including Volkswagen and Sennheiser. “Global Governance and Leadership students always make a great impression on us. They have a high level of English, a high level of motivation and interest. It is always exciting and rewarding to work with them – these students are not afraid to express their opinion, are open to contact and quickly grasp the idea. I am sure that they will have a great future,” Harald Becker shared his impressions of the meeting.
