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.  Our times urge 21st century executives to build new skills for developing an ATMOSPHERE of full-hearted, enjoyable performance, one that:

  • Transports corporate humans into a powerful pro-performance mode, including precious representatives of Generation Z!  That’s a mode which 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 is visible and tangible to everyone else in the organization.
  • Is geared for intelligent, inclusive and constructive friction – one that adds to the wealth of intellectual viewpoints.
  • Helps, as a result of the above turn organizations into effective magnets for the most promising leadership talent.

Prominent U.S. and European organizations have experienced over many years that the above described climate can be successfully implemented with the wealth of know-how that Lauda Leadership Dynamics brings to the table.
