2014: From Managing Employees to Creating Fans

Business School Impact with Simon Sinek

Over the years companies learned that customer satisfaction starts with employee satisfaction. They started to invest in leadership, in order to create the right corporate environment. Great leaders manage to create an atmosphere that is motivating, engaging and leads to great business success. But what skills are necessary for achieving that? What makes a manager a great leader? Giving a clear business direction? Being inspiring? Making employees feel safe?

On this Business School Impact more than 100 guests were eager to meet Simon Sinek and discuss the impact of great leaders. Sinek´s way of breaking down complex things and explaining them in an easy to understand way and his vivid language were thrilling and inspiring at the same time. After Simon's keynote, Willms Buhse, expert of digital leadership, and Silke Eisenreich, partner at the Viennese office of Egon Zehnder, joined the panel discussion about future challenges in leadership.
