Leadership has always been demanding. This holds particularly true in times of fundamental change, which we are experiencing nowadays. We are currently driven by globalization, digitalization and the ecological movement. Where do leaders find orientation in these fast-moving times to form critical and creative opinions on complex matters and topics which can contribute to the big picture? Questions on the ‘why’ and ‘whereto’, the ‘what’ and ‘how’ as well as the consistency of the respective answers to these questions are gaining a new value, particularly with regard to the latest generation of junior executives.
“With the new Leipzig Leadership Model, we would like to offer orientation in the sense of a compass. The model is not normative as it does not aim to prescribe the goals and values of good leadership. Instead, it provides notes on fundamental, not to be neglected dimensions of good leadership which initially lead rather to questions than to answers,” says Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart. The model places high emphasis on further development and has clearly-defined dimensions (the ‘why’, ‘how’ and ‘what’) which offer orientation to executives in rapidly changing environments.
