Digital Leadership – the 3 Cs of agile leadership in the VUCA world
  • Culture: Mutual openness and trust, spirit of partnership between equals, co-creation, positive willingness to fail, implementation of innovative methods (e.g. Design Thinking)
  • Communication: email, WhatsApp, Messenger, blogs, chats etc. – not just disseminating information, but effective synchronised COrRESPONDence
  • Conflict management: increasing interpersonal problems must be tackled together early on and fairly (in a WIN-WIN-WIN situation)

Digital transformation – systematic success for important changes
  • How to make (digital) change initiatives understandable to everyone involved at an early stage
  • How to develop customer, employee, and business benefits and minimise concerns
  • How to consistently support implementation in your daily working life right from the start
  • Change sponsors & agents, executives and coaches ensure long-term transfer success

Digital mediation – target-oriented conflict & challenge Management
  • How individual experiences and perceptions paired with unspoken interests create far-reaching problems
  • Using agile principles (e.g. "building on the ideas of others") in a solution-oriented and sustainable 5+1 multi-stage process
