Cancelled Elective Course - Leadership assessment

Course content

How can leadership behaviors be measured? What leadership behaviors should we assess? How can we select leaders who perform effectively and foster their subordinates’ well-being? This course centers on these practically relevant questions at the intersection of research and practice on behavior-based leadership assessment and provides insights on the research areas of leadership and personnel selection in this context. The scientific background, advantages and limitations of behavior-based leadership assessment methods in light of current research and practical challenges are discussed. This elective course consists of both lectures and group activities. One particular focus of this course is on the practical application of the acquired knowledge in several group exercises. In these exercises, students learn to develop behavior-based methods to assess leadership behaviors and discuss different concepts of leadership behaviors. The course is particularly aimed at students who are interested in the topics of leadership selection and assessment and who appreciate gaining practical experience in the construction of behavioral leadership assessment methods.
