Lateral leadership – which means leading without hierarchical power – is THE leadership model of the future. Parameters like the democratization of society, higher educational standards and much more contributed to the fact that the classical hierarchical leadership model, working top-down, meets its boarders nowadays.

A new leadership approach – But why?

The simplified answer is: Because our society changed as much as the conditions for our personal and professional life. And this has much of an influence on the kind and manner how we cooperate and how leadership can work.

Gunther Fürstberger, expert in lateral leadership and CEO of MDI, talks about the “Why?” behind this new situation.
