Today’s working environment is heavily driven by dynamic digitalization, but leadership is more than just a digital investment. It requires leaders to build and foster meaningful relationships, understand and implement new technologies, as well as build a meaningful culture of innovation.

  • In order to be able to cope with the pressure of innovation in the digital world, companies need digital solutions and a supporting innovation culture.
  • Despite the increasing importance of technology, leaders must focus on people and relationships – the true drivers of their company.
  • Managers must now communicate and lead remotely, creating new challenges for building trust, motivating employees, and ensuring performance.

The workshop offers a glimpse into our research with case studies from our global partners and assists participants in exchanging experiences and innovative ideas on their personal leadership behavior. Prof. Dr. Sabine Remdisch will talk about digital leadership and the new skillset of the future leader. Christian Otto will give an in-depth look into the importance success factors of integrating new technologies into leadership.
