Chair of Leadership

We presented our research at the Nacht der Wissenschaft

The night of science is a public event to discover what researchers do

On Friday, September 13, 2019, the Chair of Leadership had the great pleasure to represent WHU at the "Nacht der Wissenschaft" (Night of Science) event at Düsseldorf's Schadowplatz. The event started at 5 pm and ended at midnight.

The Chair of Leadership contributed with its contents to the area "Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft". 

Who leads whom here? The roles of bosses and employees are increasingly intermingled. The new generation wants new management models. Agile teams seem to completely eliminate the manager. Under these circumstances, what does it mean to be a good manager? Each of us unconsciously takes on a leadership role in one or the other area of life. Which leadership behaviors are most effective? What are the steps of a scientific research process? 

We discussed these and other topics with the numerous visitors at the WHU Chair of Leadership booth. In addition, our quiz on research results was a lot of fun for all participants.
