“You don’t manage people; you manage things. You lead people.” – Rear Admiral Grace Hopper
An essential skill that is needed across industries and cultures is leadership. Successful organizations recognize the importance of balancing leadership and management. After leading successful projects in the IT and cyber security field for over two decades it became clear that successful projects are not about who has the best technical solution, but who has the most passion to achieve their goals and dreams.
It is my goal to help the leaders in todays complex modern world of generative AI and hybrid work to learn how to be successful in a constantly changing environment. Leading and managing in remote and hybrid environments requires different skills and techniques than in traditional office based teams.
