“The Unpopular Boss – Why Excellent Leaders Are Not Nice” by Leadership Speaker Markus Jotzo

Rough and gruff won’t produce good results these days. But developing a friendly feel-good culture is not the solution either. So what helps to achieve challenging goals? Speaker Markus Jotzo provides the answers you need.

In this presentation, leaders will learn …

… that there is no use in constantly asking in a nice and friendly tone.

… to communicate directly and with crystal clarity, while at the same time being appreciative.

… how this rather uncomfortable behavior brings the best results and important changes.

Keynote speaker Markus Jotzo answers the questions: Can the manager do something about silo thinking? Absolutely! Can performance management get stubborn employees back on track? Of course! And what’s the biggest mistake you can make as a leader?

“Healthy Leadership in the Digital Era – Employees Who Are Fit, Committed and Ready for Change” by Leadership Speaker Markus Jotzo

The digital era and the associated accelerating changes in markets and companies are leaving their mark. Employees and managers alike are leading themselves and their staff in increasingly stress-promoting and unhealthy ways. This creeping change is occurring without us being consciously aware of it; however, its consequences are clearly measurable and noticeable and can significantly reduce the performance of teams and companies.

Leaders will learn to pay more attention to the HOW in addition to the WHAT:

… Only healthy and satisfied employees deliver the optimal results = the basis for change.
… Employees are prepared for change when they are constantly learning and experiencing personal growth.
… Mindful, appreciative, and demanding leadership is the basis for transformational leadership.

With this keynote speech, you will learn to take the quality of your leadership thinking to the next level. Speaker Markus Jotzo is firmly convinced: “Healthier = more profitable”. But why is this so difficult to implement? Concrete implementation tips lead directly to a healthy understanding of leadership, performance, and change management. Markus Jotzo will also adapt the focus of the talk to your individual situation. Achieve your goals and changes in a better, healthier way.
