Shape the future: Set the course for your career path

Empowering you to shape the future

No one can avoid the future. The only question is what you do with it. Simply run with it or help shape it? If you decide to “shape the future”, then your future can begin with us! We will give you the tools to be or become a responsible leader who thinks in new ways and shapes new things. We prepare you for a future in which you will play a decisive role. And tomorrow’s world needs leaders with new qualities: agility, enthusiasm, empathy and courage count. Courage to make mistakes and to reflect on them in order to learn from them. Personalities who like to take responsibility and go the extra mile to bring themselves and others forward together. As superiors and as people.

Individually tailored coaching at EBS

Coaching & Leadership Hub

The need for responsible and modern leadership has never been greater. For many years now, we have been committed to the topic of “Responsible Leadership” and have systematically incorporated it into research and teaching. Our goal is to train responsible leaders who want to help sustainably shape the future. In the Coaching & Leadership Hub, we specifically address the challenges and demands associated with this.

“At our university, we emphasise holistic education because our graduates have to take on leadership tasks and social responsibility in a highly dynamic environment. In our coaching sessions, soft skills are just as much in demand as intellectual abilities.” – Marie-Luise Retzmann, Head of Coaching

Targeted personality development

The coaching programme raises our students’ awareness of life issues in their private and professional lives and supports them in their personal development. All coaches are professionally trained as “Systemic Coach (EBS)” and thrive as managers or independent trainers. Every EBS student can request personal coaching with up to four meetings per semester, including an intensive, open and trusting dialogue between the coachee and their coach on various topics. These include, among others, reflecting on one’s strengths, weaknesses, typical patterns of thinking and behaviour, and values and improving self-organisation and time management.

Professional development through coaching

As a manager, you need to be able to take responsibility in a highly dynamic environment. At EBS University, we offer you the opportunity to prepare yourself specifically for this challenge. In personnel development, for example, coaching is used to improve employees’ problem-solving and learning abilities and thus to promote lifelong learning. At the same time, coaching can increase the ability to change and balance the area of tension between personal needs, the tasks assumed with a role and the higher-level corporate goals.
