What does it mean to personally, strategically and organizationally look change in the eye? What do leaders and followers need in order to do that? How do we create the space for higher level solutions, collective intelligence and co-creation? The impulse speeches encourage and open eyes and hearts.
They inspire and show pragmatic walkable paths which I have experienced and continue to experience. And I always customise the introductory speeches individually. From fireside talks in small management circles to large group events with hundreds of executives and change agents.
Leading High Performing Teams
Performance cultures for high level solutions
The enormous demand for quality leadership within the dynamics of our time is completely undervalued.
Leadership is demanding at all levels, above all when requiring the ability to change oneself: to tactfully hand over power and control to the employees ‘self-responsibility and self-organization; to recognize one‘s own projections and be open to the unexpected;
to abandon old patterns, and confidently use one’s own judgment and influence in a precise way … These are only a few requirements for the leaders and companions of change. This is the only way to create higher-level solutions, collective intelligence and co-creation in order to provide the company with agility for today, tomorrow and beyond.
Become aware of what you already feel as change agents – and what you can and must change with real inner strength.

How trust culture emerges
Trust is the lubricant for efficient performance and a powerful corporate culture.
Trust reduces costs, increases speed, and helps reduce complexity. Trust is the breeding ground for successful relationships.
But beware: building a culture of credibility and consistency is a lengthy process with various stumbling blocks. It requires much more than well-defined guiding principles. It needs courage, good reflective skills and above all self-confidence.
Because self-confidence is the basis. Only those who trust themselves can trust others, therefore, managers must first focus on themselves.
Courage is needed to allow open feedback and confrontations. This is the only way to create an atmosphere that encourages the transmission of even bad news to the top.
In so doing, it is important to bear in mind how one’s behavior affects others …
