MLI Leadership Innovation – think new and lead better

Do you want to make your management team fit for future tasks through new perspectives, self-awareness and effective management tools? Then we should talk!

Expectations of leadership are shaped by social trends and the “zeitgeist”. Every dynamically developing company needs innovation and renewal with regard to its understanding of leadership and its management practice.

We see ourselves as a think tank for the future of leadership. As co-founders of the Future of Leadership initiative, MLI experts have talked to more than 250 global thought leaders about leadership in ten years of research, including Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, SAP CEO Bill McDermott, Siemens CEO Joe Kaeser, Harvard professor Barbara Kellerman and many others. We also use interactive dialogue formats to bring young talent together with experienced managers to discuss the challenges of leadership in the digital age.

Services of the MLI:

  • Consulting for top management in order to analyse development needs with regard to leadership competencies, leadership practice and relevant leadership knowledge,
  • Contemporary interventions and leadership development formats, for example in the context of management conferences and meetings: Leadership Labs, World Cafés, Design Thinking Sessions, Fishbowl Discussions, Interactive Dialogue Sessions and Keynotes,
  • First-class keynote speakers on current topics in leadership and organisation,
  • Tailor-made leadership development programs to support current transformation processes,
  • Innovative blended learning exchange formats for supra-regional or international management teams.
