Leading the Best. Managing Friction.
Generating Co-Intelligence.

These are three essential concerns of top executives today. In our notoriously competitive age rules by which leadership, business and people’s lives function are constantly changing – often dramatically so and mostly at an incredible speed. This new context caused by digitalization, globalization, shifts in societal values and others, urges 21st century executives to build the skills to develop a performance atmosphere that:

  • Transports corporate humans into a powerful pro-performance mode, including precious representatives of Generation Z!  That’s a mode that enables “stress” to have a number of positive, even exciting components.
  • Skillfully balances (1) productive competitiveness with (2) intelligent cohesion – in both key individuals and within business units.
  • Contributes to a role model cooperation among top executives that everyone else in the organization learns-from-by-seeing (directly, with their own eyes).
  • Contains intelligent, constructive friction – one that adds to the wealth of intellectual viewpoints.
  • All of the above performance elements help turn organizations and divisions into effective magnets for the most promising leadership talent.

Prominent U.S. and European organizations have experienced over many years that the features mentioned above can be successfully implemented with the wealth of know-how Lauda Leadership Dynamics (hereafter ‘Lauda’) brings to the table.
