Healthy Leadership

At TUM Campus Heilbronn

Mental health is more relevant today than ever before. In personal life, but also in the workplace, at least since the Covid-19 pandemic. That makes it all the more important for executives to address the issue of mental health and learn how to proactively deal with problems among employees. Our “Healthy Leadership” certificate program gives you the opportunity to do just that.

What we offer you

One in five employees in Germany has already suffered from depression, and the number of unreported cases is even higher. That is the result of a representative survey conducted by the Deutsche Stiftung Depressionshilfe in 2021. So, how do you deal with employees who suffer from mental health issues? And how can these be prevented?

Our program offers a holistic overview of the topic with evidence-based and field-tested measures. In 16 weeks, you will get to know tools to consolidate health-promoting work structures in a team or organization and avoid prejudice against mentally ill people. The prevention of burnout and other illnesses is also part of the program. 

The lecturers ensure that participants learn about scientific findings in theory on the one hand, but also gain practical experience on the other – for example in group coaching sessions. 

What's in it for you

We make you a better leader: Thanks to our approach, participants can recognize mental stress more quickly after the program and deal with it in a more targeted way – for themselves and their employees. In this way, you become a pioneer in the field of mental health and can positively shape the rapidly changing world of work.
