How you will learn
The Hyper Island approach is different from a traditional online course. We combine hands-on learning in your workplace with a fast-paced online environment to create a powerful experience that truly pays off.
You will receive a weekly learning kit consisting of original content and insights to maximize your knowledge. The course content is available for you to go through at any time you choose during the week.
The 2.5 hour online workshops are scheduled on Wednesdays 14:30-17:00 CET and held by the course facilitators. They will dig deeper into the weekly module content and discuss questions and challenges.
Every week, there will be hands-on tasks and challenges to solve. They are designed to integrate with your work to build your competence.
Peer learning and perspective
We believe the smartest person in the room IS the room. We find that much of the learning comes through interactions and discussion from your peers on the course. As part of your journey, you will engage with other participants’ insights and share your perspective to create an interactive participatory experience.
Outside of the weekly live sessions, this course is designed to be flexible to your schedule. The time commitment is individual, however you are expected to spend approximately 5-7 hours per week on your learning.
Your peers on the course
This course is for anyone who leads projects, meetings, activities or teams in a work context. It is for formal and informal leaders alike, with a focus on the traits of leadership that are not constrained to formal managers.
With that said you do not need to be a formal leader/manager to take this course, but it is preferable to actively working with some type of team or teams, in order to apply the challenges. These teams could be formal or informal, co-located or remote, etc. Consultants and freelancers may consider using client/project teams for the practical tasks in the course.
