    #09 Sebastian Wächter – Change Mindset

    In this episode Sebastian Wächter shares how at the age of 18, he had a severe accident leading to 95% of his body being paralyzed. That’s why the first team he was actually leading was a team of 24/7 caretakers at quite a young age. We further talk about the role of leadership during his active time playing and coaching wheelchair rugby and lastly about his main topic where he is a real expert and keynote speaker: change processes. I am impressed by the way Sebastian connects his personal experiences with change to change processes in organisations!

    #08 Lisa Glassner – Mindful leadership

    Welcome to episode number 8. Today I am talking with Lisa Glassner who has been recommended to me as an inspiring leader by one of her team members. She is someone who doesn’t just talk about mindfulness, she really lives it! Both in the way that she finds habits for her own well-being in a busy working life as well as in the interaction with her team by giving them the space to go with their energy flow.
    In our conversation, we span the many years lasting from Lisa’s first leadership experience, which was actually outside of work where she was leading a Toastmasters club; to her working experience in Sweden, where we talk about how equality of men and women can be seen in the daily life; all the way to her current role as Regional VP EMEA for Global Client Collaboration at Steelcase. I find Lisa to be a true inspirational international leader! Enjoy the conversation!

    #07 Katja Schleicher – Authentic storytelling and gender communication patterns

    #07 Katja Schleicher – Authentic storytelling and gender communication patterns

    Welcome to the 7th episode of Destination Leadership, a very special episode as this time it’s not a leader who was recommended to me to share their leadership experience, but a communications expert who works with a lot of leaders and will share her recommendations especially for first-time leaders on the topic of communication.

    My guest today is Katja Schleicher, whom I met at a conference many years ago. Katja has been working in TV productions, advertising, PR, corporate communications and
    has been running her own company for 15 years, working on a pan-european level. We will talk about her recommendations answering questions such as what to have in mind before starting a leadership position? How to introduce yourself to your team through storytelling? How to prepare for a townhall meeting? And very interestingly – when to use feminine and masculine communication patterns?

    As the recording was made at the location of the DLD conference, you will hear some background noises, but I hope they will not be too big of a distraction to Katja’s very practical and concrete recommendations. Enjoy this episode!

    #06 Judith Sterl – Listen, really listen

    Judith Sterl is the Head of Marketing and Communications of the German Accelerator.
    Leading her first team member 20 years ago, we talk about Judith’s leadership
    experience since then. For 10 years she was working for Yahoo in Europe, leading to
    some interesting intercultural insights! Judith was recommended to me as inspiring
    leader who gives her team members a lot of space & trust to drive their own ideas and at
    the same time has their back. Towards the end of the conversation there are many
    practical suggestions Judith shares from her experience on the topics of managing each
    team member individually and also on project management.

    #05 Nicolas Deville – Taking care of your team

    #05 Nicolas Deville – Taking care of your team

    Nicolas Deville is the founder of OfficeBots.io, a completely remote start-up. We talk about his learnings when setting up completely remote companies with employees spread around the world collaborating mainly virtually and we also talk about taking care of your team – whether there are there remote or live. Nicolas shares very specific examples of how he used for example walking meetings to find out more about what’s driving his team members.

    We also talk about the importance as a leader to have a clear vision and enabling team members to find their contribution to that vision in order to create even stronger engagement. One of Nicolas’ main drivers is learning, therefore we talk about his love for books and how he encouraged his team members to buy books on the company’s expenses and then share their learnings with the team.

    #04 Johann Romefort – Being kind and give first

    #04 Johann Romefort – Being kind and give first

    Johann is the Managing Director at Techstars for the BSH Future Home Accelerator in Munich. In our interview we talk about Johann’s leadership journey from leading a team of 30 people already during his university studies in France all the way to founding his own start-up in 2007 in San Francisco and now working in the Munich start-up ecosystem.

    Whilst Johann is a technologist at heart, early on he became aware of the importance of empathy and being kind to people as part of his leadership behaviour. He was recommended to me as an inspiring leader who openly shares his vulnerabilities with his team, so we talk about how according to Johann this is a sign of courage and strength rather than weakness.

    I think Johann is an excellent role model of sharing his story including the successes and failures and I hope you’ll enjoy listening to the episode as much as I enjoyed recording it!
