    How come my event did or did not go well? Develop your leadership skills for working with groups in a lively way through reflection.

    A group can develop synergistic collaboration or remain stuck in passivity. There are many shades in between. The type of leadership plays a major role in the success of a group situation or the group dynamics. The concept of “Theme-Centred Interaction” (TCI) provides answers to the question of how to make lively and participant-oriented teaching, learning, working, and leading successful in different kinds of groups. TCI offers criteria by which various types of teaching events and group sessions can be analyzed and developed. In the LEADR (Leadership with Reflection) project – sponsored by HOOU@HAW – we have developed two TCI-based online guides which enable you to systematically reflect on your leadership actions retrospectively or prepare in advance. After all, we often still mull things over after an event and/or the next one is already in the wings. Therefore it is a good idea to pause and consciously reflect on the past or the upcoming situation. 


    It can happen that there is no time to discuss things with a colleague, let alone for personal supervision. These self-reflection tools allow you to answer important questions concerning the factors of your work with a specific group in a structured way and to adjust your future actions accordingly. Use the tools and fill in the free text boxes – writing promotes the process of becoming aware! You can save your result as a text file. If you are interested, you can read more in-depth background texts on the various reflection areas of the tools and get suggestions for further reading.

    Learning objectives

    You will become familiar with the four-factor model of TCI as a tool for reflection, increase your ability and willingness to engage in structured self-reflection, and become more self-assured as a leader for the long haul (improvement of chairpersonship).

    You practise 

    • perceiving your leadership interventions / your leadership actions more consciously and reflecting on them 
    • expanding your perception of the participants by changing your point of view
    • training your perception of the effectiveness of connecting attitude, content, methods and structuring with each other 

    and as a result you will learn to manage future situations more consciously. 

    The more often you use this guide, the more often you will go to the next event with greater inner clarity and notice that conscious reflection has a positive effect. You will experience greater clarity in your own attitude and actions, more unambiguity in your content work, and more lively collaboration within the group. 

    Technical requirements

    The tool is based on H5P and can be used with all browsers on all standard terminals. We recommend using a device with a keyboard to facilitate writing your own texts.
