His fellow students, on the bank of the river Neckar, are busy spreading their towels and heating up the barbecue – he is still sitting in the shade, engrossed in weighty tomes about Jesus, Hitler, and Fred Edward Fiedler.
Alexander Groth, student of economics and philosophy, is looking for the answer to a question upon which, in the future, he will build his entire career: How do some people make others follow them? And why is it that only so few are so good at it?
Today, Alexander Groth knows all about leadership. The speaker, author, and trainer was chosen one of Germany’s "Top 100 Excellent Speakers" and regularly gives speeches in the most famous German series of lectures on how to benefit from the
best (Von den Besten profitieren).
With his lectures he provides executives in upper and middle management with new stimuli for their work and demonstrates "how this job from hell between all stools can be handled" (quoted from: Hamburger Abendblatt).
As a result of his more than ten years of experience as a university lecturer and trainer, every one of his appearances is an event: entertaining, interactive, inspiring, energizing. His talent to be able to break down universal leadership principles into practical how-to’s makes him a sought after keynote speaker and interview partner for the media.
How you implement difficult changes successfully!
As a speaker, expert, and associate lecturer in the area of change leadership, it is very regular that Alexander Groth in conversations with directors and managers is told that current change projects in their businesses can not be carried out as planned due to the fact that employees are not supportive or even offer resistance.
Also in the German speaking countries enormous financial resources are destroyed unproductively every year, because managers are not aware of the emotions their employees undergo during change and how they can deal with those in a productive way.
Alexander Groth will illustrate
· How you inspire your staff to get started and implement new procedures,
· How you prevent them from standing still or falling back into old
· Why employees always offer resistance and how you can deal with that.
For only if you are aware how emotions arise and how they can be influenced you will be a strong leader during change.
