“Didactics, diversity & digitization are a chord, so let’s play the right key”


  • Didactics is the means to grow students in the classroom and lecture hall
  • It follows some of the principles for successful leadership (agile, servant, future-proof transformational etc.)
  • Students are also of diverse backgrounds, just like team members and clients (internal and external), with different abilities, interests & resources
  • During the pandemic, the learning context was even more digitally disrupted than the business world

So, what are the key learnings transferable to the business world?

Key Learnings & Take Aways

  • It’s mindset over tech
  • Disruption of the relationship between a leader and the followers
  • Growing people is a long-term goal-directed approach
  • Systems must be scalable
  • In a digital context with very few and brief personal encounters if any, create multisensory experiences
  • Create an inclusive set-up for all followers
  • People can grow beyond a leader’s expectations

  • Offering growth opportunities empowers people
