Workshop: Leading projects sustainably through digital transformation

We are in transition from the industrial age with its defining leadership styles to the age of knowledge workers. VUCA, disruption, agility, new work, values, environment, mindfulness are some of the new buzzwords. People play an essential role in this change. Even the Benedictines recognized, “Only those who can lead themselves can lead others” (Fr. Amseln Grün). Motive and value-oriented interaction are an essential part. Companies like Upstalsboom show how this change of a whole company can succeed under intensive value consideration and discussion.

  • Experiencing mindfulness through exercises
  • Introduction to the Upstalsboomer way
  • Viewing the film “„DIE STILLE REVOLUTION“
  • Discussion of values
