Our Mission

The LEIZ was initiated in 2013 by the Karl Schlecht Foundation (KSG). It is

  • a practice-driven university research institute dealing with significant leadership-relevant topics of our time
  • a science-based think tank that supports business, politics and civil society in making global megatrends productive through consulting, training, contract research and the provision of thematic platforms
  • a local network of independently operating thematic centers, which together and in association with external corporate, scientific and civil society partners constitute an extended research and practical institution of the region
  • The hub of a global network of international scientific and corporate partners whose joint work on, among other things, the governance of value-adding networks, the conditions for success in transcultural cooperation, the economic/social conditions and consequences of exponential technological development, and questions of business/leadership ethics and corporate culture sets global leadership standards.
