Value and meaning-oriented leadership 4.0 Developing businesses in a targeted way (incl. 9 Levels of Value Systems)

18.11.2017 - 18.11.2017, Raum Karlsruhe

Predictability, consistency and transparency – professionally as well as in our private lives – is becoming increasingly rare. Prime examples of this are globalization, digitalization and disruption amongst many others.

Leadership 4.0 stands for a new way of leading others by taking into account the changed framework conditions of the VUCA Welt (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity). Previous leadership techniques, tools and solutions are failing and leading increasingly to a lack of trust. Rightly so, because linear management does not suffice to meet the requirements of the VUCA world.

In concrete terms Leadership 4.0 means leading in terms of value and meaning. To do this “9 Levels of Value Systems” provides an excellent method of orientation. This model reflects the value systems of individuals, group and organizations. It shows us the respective typical thought patterns, leadership philosophies and organizational principles.

The big picture of development becomes clear, changes and different leadership principles become understandable. The significance opens up.
