As a political science professional (masters’ degree from Freie Universität Berlin), after many years in adult education, I specialized in nonprofit management and international development. In my work, two questions have interested me more and more:
- For staff to enjoy their jobs and work productively, how do organizations need to function?
- How can organizations stay young while growing older, and adapt to changing environments without losing the focus on their missions?
- How can executives shoulder their responsibility without suffering from burnout?
