Frequently Asked Questions​

Leadership Training

The subject of leadership is currently undergoing a major change. Whereas personnel management used to be characterized by specifications and control, managers now lead their teams at eye level and in a very agile way. The reason: globalization and digitalization have increased the pressure on companies to be highly innovative. Today’s customers expect new services and products more and more quickly. This makes it all the more important that social competences are brought to the forefront of the management function and that swarm knowledge is used successfully in an organization. This allows new ideas to emerge more quickly. Managers no longer provide ready-made solutions, but accompany their team on the way to the goal. To this end, they act as facilitators, coaches, motivators and mentors. However, this requires new leadership skills.
For example, only leaders who can relate well to their employees and motivate them to achieve their individual best performance will lead their teams to success. The good news is that leadership skills can be learned. This training provides the necessary psychological skills that are important for the new role of manager. Through leadership training, organizations increase the success of their teams. It pays off.

It is suitable for established managers who want to refresh their leadership skills and adapt them to the new conditions. In addition to a CAS leadership training and further training, an SVF leadership training is another opportunity to learn the new type of leadership from scratch. If, for example, you have completed basic education and have several years of professional experience in business or administration, you may be wondering how you can prepare for your desired management tasks; this type of targeted further training prepares you for a management position. Alternatively, perhaps you have recently taken on a management role and still feel unsure in the new terrain? Even then, it is a good idea to further develop your leadership role and your leadership skills in a targeted manner.

Do you want to update your leadership skills but are so busy in your everyday life that you can hardly find the time to participate in a time-consuming leadership training? Then an online leadership course is the method of choice for you. The advantage: You can integrate your remote courses into your everyday life as a manager in the way that suits you best. Access to your online leadership course is available around the clock and can be called up anywhere on the device of your choice – whether it’s a smartphone, laptop or tablet. You decide on a highly individual basis when, where and for how long you study. Luckily, variety is part of the program. A variety of formats are available to you: use videos, podcasts, e-books or scenario-based training in your online leadership course to deepen your knowledge.

All content is taught 100% online. However, an online leadership course from Swiss Connect Academy is not to be confused with pure self-study. You do not learn exclusively with online learning materials on our learning platform. You are also part of a virtual class. With this, you exchange ideas within a virtual classroom, independent of location and time, and regularly receive direct qualified feedback from experienced trainers.

Simply log into the SCA learning platform using your computer, smartphone or tablet. And you’re ready to go! The language level of a native speaker (at least B1 level) is recommended for participants. The modules last 17 weeks and require an investment of five to height hours per week. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 16 people per class. At the end of the management training, you will receive a certificate of participation from the Swiss Connect Academy. In our social media channels, SCA also reports on interesting leadership training articles.

The Swiss Connect Academy prepares you optimally for the certificate in leadership. The examination is organized by the SVF and the Swiss Association for Executive Education, which is highly regarded in Switzerland. It is a reward for your leadership skills.

As with the well-known Certificate of Advanced Studies – CAS Leadership, where you need a degree, with the SVF Leadership Certificate you show that you are optimally prepared for the challenges you will encounter in the new world of work as a management specialist. You increase your chances on the job market and thus have proof that you have both the professional and personal skills that are relevant to successfully lead a team. In concrete terms: not only do you know what is important in order to guide employees to good results in the age of agility, but you also have the necessary tools, from a business point of view, to optimally carry out your leadership tasks.

The exam covers, among other things, topics such as communication, conflict management, presentation skills as well as self-management and personal management. Each successfully completed module is individually certified. If you want to register for the SVF Leadership Certificate exam, you can do so online without any problems. However, after the SVF Leadership Examination, your training does not have to end. Supplement your Leadership SVF Certificate with the SVF Management Certificate, which is also included in the Swiss Connect Academy training portfolio. After successfully completing both the SVF Leadership and Management certificates, the next step at the SVF is to complete the professional examination to become a management specialist with a federal certificate.
