Lateral Leadership means winning commitment without using hierarchical power. Living amidst the digital transformation with increasingly flatter organizational structures, leading laterally has become more important than ever before.
This type of leadership follows different principles than classic hierarchic leadership: Collaboration is not a one-way street (“I give this task to you and you should achieve this or that goal”). It is much rather about winning over others for your cause. Lateral leadership can therefore be seen as goal oriented, social, interpersonal, behavioral influence. Through strategic and communicational techniques you are able to achieve the completion of the common tasks.
In this course Gunther Fürstberger, CEO an international training group focused on leadership development, author of the book “How to Win Commitment as a Lateral Leader”, and trainer of hundreds of seminar groups on this topic shares his model of lateral leadership.
