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 changing dynamically. 21st century business urges leaders to build a conducive (and even enjoyable) performance atmosphere – one that:

  • Skillfully balances (1) productive competitiveness with (2) intelligent cohesion within an organization.
  • Is open for intelligent, inclusive friction – one that constructively adds to the wealth of intellectual viewpoints.
  • Enables positive, exciting work dynamics – even in the midst of professional “stress”.
  • Is inclusive of Generation Z‘s mindset.
  • Is centered around an intelligent, role model cooperation among top executives – tangible and visible to everyone.
  • Helps turn the organization into effective magnets for the most promising leadership talent.

Over many years prominent U.S. and European organizations have experienced the realization of such a conducive atmosphere with the know-how of Lauda Leadership Dynamics (in short “Lauda“).  We are a knowledge company dedicated to solving crucial, real-life leadership issues. We’re enthusiastic about bringing successful executives’ skills in Leading the Best up one notch or two. That’s the most promising pillars of knowledge, of high-potentials and rising leadership talent.

More rapidly and deeper than most others – we understand the unique “energetic” chemistry within individual executives. And what can shift undesirable circumstances in leadership circles into more productive ones. Our double focus is on implementing (1) individualized pathways for genuine professional growth in 21st century executives. And in modes attuned and true to a person’s unique mental-emotional-relational vitality (as well as their particular hard skills).  (2)  How such growth paths in well-chosen individuals can translate onto the most promising performance dynamics in a leadership team. For this, attaining new qualities in relationship dynamics is key.
