Intro

New Technologies, the international crisis and other factors has shown: We need more leaders, less managers. But what is the difference? A short, but great Synopsis, I`ve seen:

Boss vs Leader

Courage for Leadership

We don`t have a solution for all the Problems. A new Generation of Leadership, based on Courage and Integrity, can bring all of us the solution:

1. We Need responsible Leadership

  • the ability to encourage and motivate people, employees and customers
  • to guide and coach them in good and bad times on their way to the common goal
  • to be successful jointly and have better results as a team
  • The key factors are – trust of the people in the right leadership – adjusted approaches of „right“ leadership in different situations – a responsible guideline for social responsibility.
  • other important factors are personal qualities like charisma, willpower, trustbuilding, strenghth, courage and decisiveness
  • a responsible crisis management – i.e. to be cool headed in critical situations, but with authenticity and integrity

2. We Need the leadership of tomorrow!

  • after the age of number-oriented management decision making follows the era of business culture driven leadership
  • What is competence? today: fact oriented decision maker  tomorrow: enabler and engineer of decision making processes
  • What is character? today: compliance tomorrow: personal integrity
  • What is culture? today: apply the company values tomorrow: business culture creation and formation

3. New role of the business leaders

    • Ethical behavior not only as individual, but as well as institution
    • incentivation i.e. boni longterm and related to sustainable results
    • decision making processes adjusted to ethical values (i.e. no discrimination, „Red Flags“)
    • CEO and leadership team as „role models“ demonstrate christian values
    • appreciate human capital
    • fairness for all stakeholders
    • sustainable entrepreneurship
    • show responsibility and reliability
    • open and transparent communication
    • social engagement and common good-Engagement
    • Pope-encyclica „Laudato Si“ = „our planet is our common house“
