Conference “New Forms of Leadership” Brings International Experts to the EEC
At the moment, leadership practice is undergoing landmark changes on all levels, from new models of shared decision-making all the way to new gender models. The latest concepts and trends from business practice were at the heart of the conference “New Forms of Leadership” on Friday, 10 November, 2017, presented in partnership with the research association ForGenderCare.
Several guest speakers from international research institutions as well as a selection of experts from global companies followed the invitation by Prof. Dr. Claudia Peus, Professor of Research and Science Management and Senior Vice President in Talent Management and Diversity at TUM.
After a keynote presentation by Prof. Dr. Peus, presentations from guest speakers from an interesting mix of business segments and companies commenced. Experts including Heike Dansachmüller (d-fine GmbH), Dr. Thomas Moldzio (Moldzio und Partner), and Robert T. Heinemann (Messe München) discussed the latest leadership trends. These included new models of “shared leadership” in reduced work time that are prevalent at more and more companies, as well as organization-specific leadership models.
Congress attendants were treated to the latest research findings in an engaging format via “science slam” sessions, presented by Prof. Dr. Thomas Ellwart, Dr. Jamie Gloor, and Dr. Silke Weisweiler. The experts also covered leadership during change processes, the role of “change agents”, as well as the influence of digital disruption on work-life balance and generational peculiarities in dealing with Generation Y from a leadership perspective.
Following the speeches, participants used the opportunities to engage in a dialogue with our guest speakers in a lively panel discussion, which continued into the networking segment of the event schedule.
