2022 is coming to an end and 2023 is just around the corner. Last week, the team of the Chair of Leadership spent an entire day mapping out new concepts for future courses, setting milestones for the coming year, as well as reviewing 2022.

Highlights of the chair team from this year

After the pandemic-plagued years, scientific conferences could finally take place in person again. Professor Gerpott and her team traveled to the Academy of Management Conference in the United States of America, the Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Leadership Symposium in Greece, the conference of the German Psychological Society (DGPs) in Hildesheim, and the conference of the VHB - for business studies at universities in Berlin. Next to Professor Gerpott, doctoral students Vera Schweitzer, Lukas Lanz, Anna van der Velde and Lioba Gierke presented their research results at these conferences.

In addition to science, teaching at WHU was another highlight of the year, as a large part of the lectures could finally take place in presence again. Thanks to the good technical equipment at WHU and the team’s commitment, hybrid teaching works smoothly – nevertheless, it is simply more fun to be in direct contact with the students!

As we reflected on the past year and planned for 2023, we did not forget to enjoy Christmas cookies, Secret Santa gifts and of course our annual Christmas party with the other WHU staff members.

We wish everyone a relaxing holiday season and a good start to 2023!
