Leadership Program | Aspen Leadership Alumni Roundtable: “What got us here, won’t get us there”
On September 18, 2016, the Aspen Institute Germany hosted its third Leadership Alumni Roundtable featuring Dr. Friedrich Kuhn, mathematician, philosopher, musician, former Engagement Manager at McKinsey and leader of the global leadership advisory activities around “Transformational Leadership” at Egon Zehnder International. In times of discontinuity it is necessary to expand our understanding of leadership. The times of the “heroic leader” are over and the usual top-down pattern does not work any more, while the need to create alignment and followership when entering unchartered territory is higher than ever. Giving examples of successful Transformational Leadership processes within globally operating organizations, and in discussion with participants, Friedrich Kuhn identified the core elements of “good leadership“, which is necessary to master such crucial changes.
