Master Class Leadership program for the public and social profit sector


Public and social profit organizations are under increasing pressure to realize policy objectives as efficiently as possible. They must guarantee a high-quality service with less means. To achieve this, they need to work on leadership development. A personal leadership program fulfills that need.

This Dutch-language program is built around the 19 insights into leadership and the book ‘The Leader’s Clothes’ by Koen Marichal and Jesse Segers. Koen Marichal is the teacher/coach who takes the participants through the program. Based on its societal awareness, Antwerp Management School wants to give a powerful impulse to the professionalization of public institutions and social profit organizations, by offering practice-oriented training programs tailored to the specific management needs of the sector.

Part of Postgraduate

This program is part of a postgraduate degree in public and social profit management. The postgraduate consists of 5 modules of 4 or 5 consecutive Mondays or Thursdays each, with this leadership program as a constant theme and a final paper that participants write based on a management issue within their organization.

Learning objectives

Reinforcement of your 'leadership mindset' and your leadership claim as a public manager through:

  • Insight into the meaning of leadership, the evolutions in leadership and how leadership develops
  • Reinforcement of your self-awareness as a leader
  • Insight into the essential mechanisms of leadership: trust, authenticity & political action, and sharing of leadership
  • Reinforcement of your attentive and open-minded presence
  • Shaping and delivering of your own leadership story
