Chess master or gardener: new leadership in the age of digitisation

They say crap rolls downhill… As good leadership is based more on imitation than subordination, true authority is less about holding a certain position than it is about leading from the front and showing the right attitude. Modern leaders are so much more than lone chess masters who issue instructions and exercise control – they have to ensure their employees can manage themselves with the attitude of a mindful gardener. This idea is the essence of the six theses presented in the “Manifesto for Human(e) Leadership”, which is intended to stimulate thought about leadership in the age of digitisation.
