„Psychological System Error" - Über den menschlichen Umgang mit digitaler Technologie im Führungsalltag
Digitale Technologien machen Führungskräften oft das Leben leichter. Argument für den Einsatz solcher Technologien ist oft eine erhöhte Arbeitsleistung. Der Einsatz solcher „digitaler Führungstools“, insbesondere elektronische Überwachung, kann im Team jedoch auch mehr schaden als nutzen. In diesem Vortrag soll ein sinnvoller Umgang mit digitalen Tools aus der Perspektive der arbeitspsychologischen Forschung diskutiert werden. Die Rolle psychologischer Grundbedürfnisse von Menschen wird thematisiert. Wann macht ein Einsatz digitaler Tools Sinn – und wann ist es nur digitales Micromanagement?

Emotional Intelligence – A Key Skill for the Future of Work
What skills do we need for the future of work? Of course, technical and digital skills are needed to keep pace with developments in robotics and artificial intelligence. But when machines take over the tasks that we used to do with our hands and algorithms are faster and better at the tasks we currently do with our heads, what is left for us humans to do? I suggest it is the tasks that we do with our hearts – raising questions with curiosity, evaluating options, developing inspiring ideas for the future, relating with colleagues and customers. All those tasks require emotional intelligence – the ability to recognize and regulate the emotions of yourself and of others. In my talk, I share with you why emotional intelligence matters, whether you can learn it, what steps you need to take now – and what puzzle piece we are still missing to create a better future of work for humanity.
