Today’s working world is in a constant state of change, influenced by such megatrends as digitalisation, individualisation and globalisation. The phrase “new work” has become the buzzword in this respect in recent times. How do companies master the transition from a rigid, desk-based 9-to-5 schedule at the office to remote working utilising hybrid meetings and digital leadership?
“During the Covid pandemic, astonishing feats suddenly became possible that to many had previously seemed inconceivable. During the past two years, working in virtual space has become routine,” says Professor Katrin Winkler, Director of Kempten Business School. “Although remote working also has its downsides, people in businesses and institutions will not want to relinquish this kind of flexibility in the future. So more and more managers find themselves facing the challenge of having to direct staff both remotely and face to face, and combining the best of both worlds.”
Managers need to learn new methods for leading hybrid teams
To ensure corporate success in the digital working and business environment, managers need to learn new methods for leading hybrid teams, spotting trends early on, and devising a future-proof vision for their company. They need to be technically adept, data-focused and capable of inspiring teams to generate innovations that drive forward change. Agile leadership in flat hierarchies, coaching and mentoring in digital working environments together with diversity at team and managerial levels are the burning topics right now.
“As providers of academic professional development at Kempten University of Applied Sciences, we devise and run agile courses that empower companies and their workers to actively carve out the future,” Professor Winkler explains. Fully in sync with the zeitgeist, Kempten Business School conducts its professional part-time master’s degree programme in Business Psychology, professional development cours-es in Women in Leadership and Coaching and Consultancy, and webinars on Human Skills in a Digital World and Shaping the Future: Transformation, Disruption, Digitalisa-tion entirely online.
"There are no boring frontal lectures or old-school theory-based examinations. We de-liver interactive online learning with outbreak sessions, practical case studies, network-ing and coaching."Prof. Dr. Katrin Winkler
“Our courses appeal to a broad target group that is keen to experience the future of learning and receive constant new bursts of in-spiration,” Winkler emphasises. At digital events such as CEO and C-Level Voices, workers and entrepreneurs get the chance to expand their professional networks and learn from the experiences of top managers drawn from all over the world.
