I learn something new every day. I work with colleagues from HR, with professionals, managers, and executives. We solve problems together. I am constantly exchanging ideas and observing. I see what works, doesn’t work or no longer works. My life consists of curiosity, surprise, irritation, working on new things, struggling to find solutions, enjoying success. And I read a lot. I am a constructive sceptic. Anyone can do HR bashing. But what are the right answers and solutions?
In my role as a professor, I absorb new things every day, structure things, develop perspectives and solutions for the business reality. This creates something that I give back in my books, my seminars, my podcasts, and YouTube series. In my role as a professor, I am a kind of HR agent. What a wonderful profession!
Be my student. There is me and my content as video, audio, text, and of course personally.
More than 50,000 subscribers on YouTube. YouTube series and podcasts on Human Resources Management, Human Recourses Strategies, and Social Research Methods. Over 100 videos and podcast episodes. I provide the slides for all content in PowerPoint format free of charge.
It is not only since the coronavirus pandemic that I have made my teaching publicly available. It provides professionals, students, and colleagues with the opportunity to benefit from my work. The overwhelming response proves me right and fills me with pride.
Sometimes I can’t help it and my thoughts have to find expression in books. Several of them have become true classics in a short period of time.
I teach at the wonderful Furtwangen University. In addition, I teach at some other institutes and universities in Europe.
Every now and then a topic moves me. Usually spontaneously. And if I have the feeling that this or that really needs to be said, then it becomes a short blog post or a short video.
