Talk 2: Safety vs Competition in Organizations - Defining the thin line

Join us on April 28th for the 3rd round of our Dismantling Leadership Discussion Series co-hosted by leadership.sprouts and HHL.

Trivago founder Rolf Schrömgens from leadership.sprouts & Prof. Dr. Stephan Stubner (HHL) will be talking with their guest David Schneider (CEO Zalando) about the mechanisms of Safety & Competition in an organization and how leaders need to find a healthy balance between them.

Entering organizations, you quickly identify their operating systems: how do people work together in order to create value, success for the company.

As leaders, we are responsible for defining these operating systems. We define how performing our organizations operate. In this discussion round we discuss what it needs to set up smart operating systems as the foundation of well-performing teams.

This discussion might shed lights on the following questions:

  • What does define speed and adaptability of an organization?
  • What does Empowerment actually mean?
  • When does safety or competition become an effective prerequisite for performance?
  • How do you build organizational structures fostering one or the other?
