Book Prof. Dr. Johannes Wildner

„To lead means to use demagogery combined with a sense of responsibility and a sense of proportion to reach a goal aspired by everybody.“ 


Interactive Lecture: „Conducting an orchestra as management task in an artistic collective“
Emotional and structural requirements of an orchestra in analogy to group-dynamic processes in business. An example: a manager as team captain must  make 40.000 people not only like the work that they do but at the same time do it the way he wants them to do it. A conductor follows the same goal but not with 40.000 but with 100 people.

„The more successful you exert the instrument of leadership, the better you can include people into decision making without leaving the masterplan.“

Prof. Dr. Wildner lectures on Motivation, Democratization and Integration within an organization.
