Rethinking management communication

Opening Lecture in English, Discussion in German

This event is organized by the Department of Foreign Language Business Communication

Virtual forms of work and peer leadership are increasingly replacing a culture of presence and supervision. Social media create an illusion of immediacy. Internal and external stakeholders influence corporate values. As part of this transformation process, traditional leadership functions are not only being questioned, but redefined. What does it mean to be a “leader” today? What characterizes successful management communication? We will be discussing the role of communication within the context of today’s new leadership culture.
