Impuls Session 1

15:45 - 16:15 Uhr

The presentation looks at some of the latest challenges facing company executives and their organisations in the Digital age. The greater % of Leaders are having to wake up to the fact that they are not ready to take advantage of the digital economy.
The Digital age is all about speed and agility and in Gallup research carried out this year it was found that only 10% of German Companies are agile, whilst 34% were somewhat agile and 56% are not.
Leaders are struggling to let go of old mindsets and need to change, broadening their skills and knowledge whilst deepening their understanding of self and their own leadership style and that of their teams and organisation.
Employees are asking for greater more inclusive engagement and the Y generation who make up 50% of the workforce now, do not trust unless you have a more understanding relationship with them.
Digitalisation is about transformation and we need transformational leaders in this time of huge change and pace and needs of the employee base.
The leaders and companies that do not change will be left behind.
