As part of the course "Business Psychology" on February 5, 2019, Heiko Hutmacher, Chief Human Resources Officer and Labor Director, at METRO AG, held a guest lecture on the informative topic "Leadership Development at METRO". 

During his lecture, Heiko Hutmacher provided various insights into the development and transformation of the corporate culture at METRO and its implementation by e.g. workshops. He emphasized that only through self-reflection of the management as well as a participative leadership style cultural change is made reality. Successful leadership begins with the strengthening of a positive interpersonal relationship and the emergence of a strong community with shared values.
