Digital presentation at the German-Russian evening of the Consulate General St. Petersburg

Sustainable development impulses for leadership and organization

At the invitation of the Consulate General St. Petersburg, I had the honor to speak about my work in the field of human resources and organizational development with a focus on permaculture design at a German-Russian evening. The topic of my presentation was how working principles of permaculture can be used to strengthen resilience in teams and organizations. In a diverse group of 35 people, we had a lively dialogue.

Holistic observation, flexible planning and responsible action are among the basic principles of permaculture. This may sound familiar at first, but a closer look at permaculture’s systemic ways of working reveals important distinguishing features that have the potential to make a big difference. They offer valuable impulses for our everyday leadership and management – especially in these crisis-ridden times.

I was very pleased that the working methods presented met with such a positive response from this very heterogeneous group of participants. Many thanks again to Consul General Dr. Eltje Aderhold for the invitation to the lecture.
