Why role models won’t get us there
What the world certainly doesn’t need is more sages on a stages. We’ve also got enough slick and embellished celebrity stories of people who seem „unreachable“. That is why role modeling is also slightly off the track. We don‘t want our members to imitate larger-than-life figures by copying their behavior. We need authentic people who meet others at eye level and help them to find their very own way.
What is a true leader by example?
It’s about showing leaders not in their roles, but as whole human beings. Seeing both their accomplishments and their missteps as inspirational examples. That is why we have decided to speak only of “Leaders by Example”. This may sound sophistical, but “the meaning of a word is its use in language,” as Wittgenstein once said.
Why interviews about transformation?
Because by interviewing people who have done it, seen it, failed it, we can all learn HOW to do it better. Again and again. Transformation isn’t so much about the theory but about experimenting. Change cannot be thought through. It can only be acted out in real life. This is the difference between SEARCHING and FINDING. We really hope that these transformation interviews help and inspire you to discover your own path in this transformational journey. The ride is hard but worth it. There is no other way.
May the force be with you!
