The guest lecturer described the challenges of today’s business environment, focusing on aspects like cultural conflicts (local, organisational), value creation (short- and long-term management), elaboration and his understanding of the crisis of ‘strategies’, the perspective of ‘tied managers’. Dr Zielak also presented parts of his PhD thesis on motivational aspects of the contemporary workforce, interesting research on the Manager/Artist/Priest Model, and a short overview of the company he is managing: Continental A.G. In recognition of the digitalisation of knowledge together with its benefits for the business community and society, the whole guest lecture was video recorded and will be available on the Canvas platform for future generations of students.

Some of our students’ thoughts on the guest lecture:

 “Being a manager is hard. It requires a lot of work. A successful manager should be able to predict the future, have emotional intelligence and also trust his/her workers.” Angela

 “A different cultural heritage brings different interpretations.” Nicolo

 “I learned that nowadays most managers are for rent and not every CEO of a company is the company’s original owner. I think that it was a really informative and educational lecture about motivational leadership and it has had a big influence on my learning how to become a manager.” Nina

 “I learned how to be a good manager, a responsible, motivational leader. A manager has to trust his/her employees, take rational actions and accept failure.” Teodora

Full Professor Vlado Dimovski, PhD, Associate Professor Sandra Penger, PhD, and Assistant Professor Judita Peterlin, PhD, wish to thank the guest lecturer for his educational, practical and inspiring lecture.
