Leadership based on authority and hierarchy is no longer adequate in a working environment characterized by digitalization, globalization, demographic and cultural upheavals. Leadership in the 21st century is complex - traditional business models, employment and communication relationships require a high degree of flexibility, mobility and commitment. This in turn means that the pressure on executives is increasing rapidly.
As always, leadership means influencing, inspiring and motivating people. If this is to succeed, if we want to master the large and small challenges of our time jointly, we need a new understanding of leadership. Excessive egoism makes way for a serving attitude. Autocracy turns into community. Ambiguity turns into focus. Out of hubris grows humility.

As a sparring partner at eye level, I assess your situation, give honest feedback and point out possible directions and solutions that will strengthen you in your leadership role.
