New Leipzig Talents

This autumn, HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management is launching a leadership competency development program for new students: New Leipzig Talents. Participants will learn and improve upon their strengths with personal coaching by outstanding personalities from business and society. Embark now on your path to develop your competencies!

Success: Education and practical training are no longer enough to lead a successful professional life. More than ever, it has become important to develop your competencies in order to find the creative solutions necessary for the challenges of the modern business world.

Practice: Competencies are not learned in the classroom, but learned in practice. This emphasis on application is pervasive of the New Leipzig Talents program.

Coaching: The coaching at New Leipzig Talents comes in to answer these questions: Which experiences take you further? What are your real strengths? How can developing your strengths affect your future?

What is Competency Coaching?

"The ideal participant is motivated and prepared to work on their own competency profile to leave his or her existing comfort zone and try new things. The program participants benefit from the experience of their coaches, gain new perspectives on themselves and others, and can better assess and explore their unique previously hidden talents."

Prof. Dr. Timo Meynhardt, Dr. Arend Oetker Chair of Business Psychology and Leadership

Why Competency Coaching?

“While in career coaching we focus on goals and strategies, the New Leipzig Talents program is focused specifically on expanding your own personal competencies.”
