Vice-Rector of KUL at Catholic Leadership Program training in the USA

Last week, the Nanovic Institute at the University of Notre Dame (USA) hosted a training course called the "Catholic Leadership Program". Participants were leaders and scholars from Catholic universities in Central and Eastern Europe - including Armenia, Croatia, Georgia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine.

Our University was represented by the Vice-Rector for Mission and Digitization - Dr habil. Adam Zadroga. According to him, it was an excellent opportunity for cross-border knowledge exchange and international cooperation. The professional (workshop) sessions focused on effective leadership, supervision, management and human resources strategies.

Topics discussed at the training included:
• Building Teams
• Dignity Centered Leadership
• Catholic Universities as Protagonists of the Universal Church in a Global World of Challenges
• Vision and Strategy in University Leadership
• A Great Place to Work: Creating University Teams with Purpose

One of the sessions included a simulation of diplomacy led by Clemens Sedmak, Professor of Social Ethics and Director of the Nanovic Institute. This exercise was a valuable opportunity for participants to hone their skills in negotiation, compromise and effective decision-making with people with whom they may disagree.

In addition, thanks to the Notre Dame Alumni Association, participants had the opportunity to visit the beautiful campus of the University of Notre Dame.
