1. Sie sind dafür bekannt, auch komplizierte wirtschaftliche Zusammenhänge verständlich darzustellen. Können Sie dem Mitarbeiter eines Opel-Zulieferbetriebes knapp erklären, was seine Kurzarbeit damit zu tun hat, dass Familien in Virginia oder South-Carolina ihre Eigenheimkredite nicht mehr bezahlen können?

1. Having shared your inspirational messages with over one million people in 43 countries, what have you discovered is a common trend throughout the world of HR?

I would categorize this common trend as a “missed-opportunity”; my experience is that too many organizations view HR as a cost centre. For over 20 years I have been an avocate of the notion that...

1. Is it a difficult transition to go from being an ordinary soldier, to being their leader?

It’s not difficult. I started my military career in military college, and after two months of basic training they made me squad leader. I changed my mentality and I took responsibility for my friends. I gave them orders and I was even harsher on them than previous corporals who were commanding us!...

1. Sie haben als erster Europäer die Alashan, eine Sandwüste südwestlich der Gobi durchquert. Dort gibt es kaum Oasen, eine Durchwanderung ist also eine extreme Angelegenheit. Reizt Sie mehr die sportliche Herausforderung oder die Grenzerfahrung?

Meine Beziehung zur Wüste hat eine sehr lange Vorgeschichte. Für viele Menschen hierzulande, die wir in der Komfortzone leben, ist die Wüste die schlimmste Landschaft...

1. How could the top management of a company inspire and motivate its employees in order to deliver the company's brand? Could you give us some examples on this regard? The key to this is a concept that I call 'loose/tight'. Most organisations exercise a very tight control over what employees should do but a very loose control over why they should do it.


In other words they have strict procedures and regulations that employees must abide by even when these do not make sense for the customer...
