Second Edition of the HENSOLDT “iDARE” Leadership Development Program Launched with an International Focus
With a new international focus, the second iteration of the HENSOLDT “iDARE” Leadership Development Program launched on 11 October. The program is once again aimed at about 20 high-ranking executives with a mission to teach valuable skills for mastering the challenges of today’s VUCA business landscape (short for “volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity”).
The unique customized program places special emphasis on strengthening entrepreneurial thinking and transformational leadership. It provides participants with an opportunity to increase their individual leadership skills while internalizing the company’s basic values, the HENSOLDT Fundamentals. Course contents provide an inspiring mixture between state-of-the-art research and lectures from business practitioners.
In line with the TUM Executive Education teaching philosophy, the participant’s personal skill development is of utmost importance. The program supports this process through a large degree of self-reflection while also providing every participant with a unique personal leadership profile, based on 180-degree feedback from their colleagues, supplemented by coaching sessions as well as our digital coach, Emma.
The curriculum features practical tools such as the business canvas method as well as meetings with startup companies during networking events in the evenings. The HENSOLDT program once again encourages reflection as the key to strengthening the transfer of newly acquired skills into leadership practice.
The “iDARE” leadership development program was created in close cooperation with TUM experts to meet the company’s particular demands and extends over the duration of five months. The program’s modules focus on the targeted development of personal leadership skills in key areas such as digitization, agile methodology, reflection, and entrepreneurship.
HENSOLDT is a world leader in the field of premium sensors and has a strong presence in industries such as radars, optronics and electronic protection systems. The company emerged in 2017 as a spin-off from the electronics branch of the Airbus Group and currently employs 4,000 people at locations in Germany and South Africa.
