Abstract [en]

A good leadership inside a company is able to improve a company’s performance.

This thesis tries to highlight the importance of an effective leader for a company and

how a company is able to enhance their performance by upgrading leadership

training. Therefore, this work concentrates on the technical industry in Germany to

find a standardized leader image regarding biographical characteristics, which offers

the requirements for modulating leadership development methods or rather leadership

training to it.

The existing literature gave information about the duties and responsibilities of a

leading person and the major contributors to an effective leader. Beyond that,

information has been gathered about the educational background of the leadership

circles in Germany’s top companies to draw a conclusion about the composition of

the leadership ranks in Germany’s technical companies. Besides, leadership

development methods have been analyzed from which leadership training is

emphasized as the most important for this study.

In order to gather the missing information, a qualitative research has been conducted,

giving the information about the standard leaders as a male, studied engineer, who did

not experience leadership soft skills during his academic education. From this it

follows, that it is possible to adapt leadership training in terms of knowledge transfer

of leadership soft skills especially to fill the gaps of the technical audience.
