For me, the LEAD_able Summer School 2020 is, without exaggeration, one of the most beautiful weeks of my life! Seldom before have I had the feeling that I have developed to such an extent, both personally and in terms of skills, within a single week. I associate LEAD_able not only with effective training and productive sessions, but above all with intensive interpersonal contacts. For me, this short time has resulted in great friendships. My horizon immediately expandedby a few aspects. For me, leadership means developing your own character and, last but not least, listening to your own feelings and of your colleagues.
