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

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 swiftly changing – and often dramatically so. The 21st century executive world urges us to build a work ATMOSPHERE of full-hearted, enjoyable performance through:

  • Transporting corporate humans, including valuable representatives of Generation Z, into a powerful pro-performance mode. A mode which enables positive, even exciting components within “stress”.
  • Skillfully balancing (1) productive competitiveness with (2) intelligent cohesion – in both key individuals and among business units.
  • Contributing to a role model cooperation among top executives, tangible and visible to many.
  • Gearing themselves for intelligent and inclusive friction – one that constructively adds to the wealth of intellectual viewpoints.
  • Helping turn organizations into effective magnets for the most promising leadership talent.

Over many years prominent U.S. and European organizations have experienced the implementation of such a climate with Lauda Leadership Dynamics’ know-how.

And in modes attune to and true to a person’s unique mental-emotional-relational vitality as well as their hard skills.  (2)  How such growth paths in a few individuals can translate onto the most promising performance dynamics in a specific leadership team (or the teams reporting to top executives. New relationship dynamics are key.
