4 Leadership Imperatives for Humanitarians®


Discover how to inspire trust. Learn how to communicate a clear and compelling purpose. Understand how to align systems. And gain the secret to unleashing talent in your team



A great leader knows how to achieve results with and through others. Too often in the humanitarian sector, highly engaged individuals find themselves in leadership positions without the necessary skills to succeed. Too busy with the whirlwind of daily activities and deadlines, they work hard at managing their environment instead of really establishing themselves as leaders. 


As a consequence, staff lose faith and touch with the organizations’ vision, leading to diminishing motivation, burn-out and, ultimately, the team’s effectiveness in reaching the organizations’ mission.

This team leadership programme introduces the “4 Imperatives of Leadership®”, helping you clearly define your role as a leader and develop the right mind-set to lead people in the 21st century. You will learn how to truly unleash the potential of your team members and effectively focus their energies on the organization’s critical priorities. This programme will not only show you how to get the most out of your team, it will show you how to get the best out of your team.


Many can get positive results over a short term, but it takes an exceptional effort from a leader to unleash the potential of the team over the long term and “write an ongoing story” of success.

How do I feel about this course? That’s quite easy to answer: empowered, enlightened and highly inspired! In an ideal world, every single manager and leader, no matter whether working in the corporate or the humanitarian world, shall attend this course at least once!
— Veit Vogel, Country Manager NRC, Cote d’Ivoire
I would like to thank the facilitators for the wonderful journey they have driven us through. It is amazing the way we take things for granted, and I have realized, after the training, that one could really do better and increase the number of his followers in any operation he would lead. I am convinced that applying the leadership habits I have learnt will make me a better leader, and make my teams work more effectively.
— Kimberly Roberson, Chief of FICSS, UNHCR
One of the best workshops I have ever attended. Very inspiring and challenging to review my personal mindset and at the same time providing practical tools to master leadership skills to make meaningful change at work and personal life.
— Peter Kozelets, Protection Officer, Dadaab
