Manifesto for Human(e) Leadership

Six Theses for New Leadership in the Age of Digitalization

About the Book

At a time when it is “normal that many things are changing and are changing more quickly than ever” (Karl-Heinz Geißler), the role of leadership must at least be discussed and in parts even questioned. Today Leadership is only legitimate if it has the self-leadership of the employees entrusted to it as its goal. Leadership is about making other successful. This human(e) leadership is not a question of position, but of attitude. This book describes this attitude and the values of new, agile, digital and above all human leadership around the Manifesto for Human(e) Leadership.
