Never TOO young to lead
"Mit Mitte/Ende 20 bist du glaub ich noch zu jung für die Position. Ich glaube es ist doch ganz gut wenn du noch weitere Erfahrung im operativen Bereich sammelst, bevor du die Karriereleiter hochläufst" wie oft muss man genau diesen Satz hören. Bei den sogenannten Zillenials oder GenZ leider ZU oft. Ich möchte allen Frauen zeigen wie sie weiterhin an sich selbst glauben können - selbst wenn es der eigene Manager nicht mehr tut! Wie kann man relativ jung bereits Führungsverantwortung zeigen sowohl mit Team als auch ohne? Wie schafft man es im richtigen Moment den Schlussstrich zu ziehen? Wie kann man an sich selbst arbeiten und aus sich hinauswachsen in Bezug auf Teamführung im jungen Alter

Transforming Leadership: The system change imperative
In today's changing business world, new leadership and work models are gaining momentum. Companies explore hybrid work, flexibility, leading in uncertainty, and adapting to the BANI world. The demand for new approaches is driven by expectations from individuals, society, and government. Leaders are central in driving company goals and meeting employee needs. To manage these changes, establishing a strong system for leaders to flourish is crucial. It is important to recognize how to foster such an environment and navigate the path to becoming the driving force behind this transformative change. Focus: leadership amidst evolving expectations.
