extracurricular course "professional and personal development"

Dear MBA students,

on short notice, we will offer the opportunity to attend the exctracurricular course "professional and personal development" held by Prof. Sridhar of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, USA. Prof. Sridhar is an expert in the field of management and leadership and works as a consultant for a great number of international companies.

Please find his course description below:

This course helps students identify their own personal and professional goals, develop strategies to achieve them and encourage others they work with to do likewise. Topics covered in this course include developing self-awareness, determining values and priorities, career management and developing skill in coaching and mentoring. The course is conducted in such a way that students are expected to be co-coaches and co-mentors for each other. To help students gain the familiarity with each other necessary to play these roles, the class facilitates students to work through a variety of problem-solving exercises in a relaxed, non-threatening, trustful setting. A primary outcome of this course is a personal and professional development plan that students can use to pursue their professional and personal goals during and after their time in the MBA program and beyond.  

The course takes place within the regular course hours on the following dates:
