Leadership of schools

 

In today's interview by hr-editor Claudia Wehrle, the headmaster Stefan Caspar and Dr. Claudia Nagel intensely discussed the topic of "what school directors can learn from managers".

The role of principals has changed dramatically over the last few years and is increasingly determined by economic criteria, so that directing a school more and more can be compared to the management of a company. The classic manager roles (information, decision-making and relationship roles) must now also be performed by school leaders. With regard to the "product" education and knowledge transfer for young people in comparison with   classical corporate products and services, however, the school head is more likely to provide value-oriented attitude. This should not be based only on economic criteria but also has to take into account the long-term development of the heart and character. For executives, however, the aspect of appreciation and meaning for employees is increasingly in the foreground.

Offenbach's Dispute around Freedom

EVO and the department for promotion of economic development had invited and more than 120 guests came to the old Schlosserei in Offenbach on 15th of August 2017. This year's Offenbach dispute focused on the central theme of modernity, freedom, and the question of whether or not it would be threatened at the moment and, if so, what should be done. [Nbsp]

On the podium sat Prof. Willaschek, Kant expert from Goethe University, brother Paulus, a belligerent month of the capuchin order and Hans Strothoff, a very successful entrepreneur from Dreieich. An extremely exciting, contrary and entertaining discussion by Claudia Nagel was presented.

As a result it became clear how much more the capacity for freedom should be promoted - through teaching, education and the practicing of the   competence, to consciously deal with their conscience and the different decision and action alternatives.

Top managers need emotional complexity in strategy processes

In my most recent paper on behavioural strategy* I have argued that one core competency of managers dealing with strategic decisions is to be able to consciously deal with paradoxes and ambiguities as well as the capacity to hold the tension between apparently conflicting choices. Latest research proves the need for this competency on an emotional level – emotional complexity is the key competency for leaders of strategic change in complex situations.
