Leadership. Education. Personality. Management in a World of Fluctuation

Steinbeis Competence Day to look at current challenges facing managers

In a world that is becoming increasingly complex and dynamic, it is sometimes important to look at old challenges from a different angle. This requires managers who lead – managers with the ability to guide organizations and entire areas of society through the challenges of a world dictated by change. But what exactly is “leadership” in this context? What abilities do people need to lead in such situations? And how can such abilities be acquired or learned? These are fundamental issues that can dictate whether a company or organization remains competitive, or doesn’t. Possible answers to these questions will be the topic of the Steinbeis Competence Day, the international convention taking place at the Stuttgart Haus der Wirtschaft (House of Commerce) on December 6.

The event also marks the kick-off of a series of scientific symposia being organized by the School of International Business and Entrepreneurship (SIBE) at Steinbeis University Berlin in collaboration with the Steinbeis Foundation. To coincide with the event, SIBE will start publishing a scientific journal on the topic and related issues. The journal will offer fundamental and inspirational ideas along with new scientific insights, with reports on the practicalities of providing education in this area. The editors of the magazine are Professor Dr. Dr. h. c. Werner G. Faix (managing director and founder of SIBE, and holder of the chair for Business and HR Management at SHB) and Professor Dr. Rudolf Tippelt (Professor (ret.) for Education Research at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich). The editorial board have already attracted a number of leading international scientists and business leaders to contribute to the new specialist magazine.
