“Leadership is not about having a nice title on your business card and being something better. You are a servant of the people you work with. For me, it’s a difference of management and leadership. It is important for me to take part in leadership development myself to get the same knowledge and speak the same language as my team. In my eyes, it makes no sense to train your management team and not be involved yourself.”
Sven Lindig, CEO
