Born in East Germany. Woman. Board member in a Dax company. Is that possible?

Join the 2nd Leipzig Leadership Talk with Hiltrud Werner, Head of Integrity and Legal Affairs at Volkswagen AG.

Hiltrud Werner, 52, born in Bad Doberan, graduated from high school in Mühlhausen/Thuringia in Germany and is now Head of Integrity and Legal Affairs at Volkswagen AG. How did she manage to make such a career with her East German biography? In the weekly magazine SPIEGEL, she recently said that she sometimes felt "like a rare animal in a zoo".

How did her origins shape her personality? What is her opinion on the Leipzig Leadership Model? What does she advise executives today? To answer these questions Mrs. Werner gives a lecture on the culture of courage and will hold a discussion with the audience under moderation of Prof. Timo Meynhardt from the Dr. Arend Oetker Chair of Business Psychology and Leadership at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management.

The HHL series on the Leipzig Leadership Model
In a world which is perceived as insecure, orientation is needed. It is precisely where there are no simple answers that "good" leadership begins. The Leipzig Leadership Model represents an approach which focuses on the questions of why and what for and consistently measures leadership performance by its contribution to a greater good. The idea per se is not new but has gained special momentum in light of the current challenges in the economy and society. The model establishes a scientifically-founded framework in this context and directs the attention towards the most significant and lasting challenges: What is the sense, the overarching objective and significance ("purpose") of one's actions? What does it mean to shape, think and act entrepreneurially? What determines whether or not the actions may be deemed appropriate? What does it mean to remain effective despite an increasing lack of clarity and complexity and to achieve goals in a practical manner?

The new Leipzig Leadership Talk series was designed to discuss the latest findings and original perspectives on these questions and present them to a wide audience. The series is addressed to all those in the economy, politics, culture and society who are facing leadership challenges that cannot be solved by giving standard responses. In this compact format, renowned experts will provide insight into the latest developments, present particularly creative ideas and, in doing so, challenge the participants to question entrenched mindsets and procedures. Additionally, the participants will have the opportunity to expand their network in an exclusive circle.
