September 16, 2015, Berlin

Speaker: Fred Kiel, PhD, Co-founder KRW International and Author of "Return on Character"

Moderator: Prof. Matthew S. Bothner, Professor of Strategy and Deutsche Telekom Chair in Leadership and HR Development, ESMT

Does the character of a leader have impact on an organization’s performance? Fred Kiel says YES. In his Open Lecture at ESMT, Kiel presented his new book “Return on Character” and explained how character-driven leaders and their teams consistently deliver as much as five times greater returns for their organizations than those run by self-focused leaders. His work is set to change expectations of leadership and will show any leader at any level how to start acquiring the character habits that create profits, reduce risk, and engage and energize the workforce.
