An opportunity for senior leaders to enhance your understanding of sustainable peacebuilding and develop leadership styles that can achieve concrete results
Multiple challenges restrict the exercise of effective leadership in peacebuilding contexts. International peacebuilding policy and practice is still evolving to address the real challenges of building sustainable peace in conflicted, polarised and violent societies. This leadership course provides an opportunity for senior leaders to enhance your understanding of sustainable peacebuilding and the leadership styles that can achieve it. You will also learn how to apply this understanding to your own situation.
The course emphasises collaborative and inspirational leadership methods. It is interactive, building on participants’ specific knowledge and experience. Plenary and work group discussions include conceptual input and experiential learning methods. Case studies focus on specific leadership issues in peacebuilding. With experienced leaders acting as mentors, participants are encouraged to address their own leadership challenges and develop problem-solving strategies that are immediately applicable in their work environment.
