We are proud to announce a new member of our advisory council: Bettina Stumpp, Ph.D.! Dr. Stumpp is a Senior Lecturer at Zurich University of Applied Sciences at the School of Management and Law.
After degrees (MA and PhD) in Classics, she moved into the field of Computer Science and spent several years for the Institute for Computer Science at the University of Tübingen and directed the Department of IT education. Then she moved to Switzerland and worked for the 2 major banks and became a Vice President and Director. She stayed for 18 years, learning a lot about herself, about leading people, success and failure in change and project management and about corporate systems.
Today she is a Senior Lecturer at Zurich University of Applied Sciences at the School of Management and Law, teaching classes in the Master Sc. Economy. Her main subjects are innovation – thinking without barriers, agile ways of work, and modern leadership.
She found surprising overlaps especially between entrepreneurial and strategic leadership required in the current economy and the concepts of the philosophy of orientation, e.g., mastering situations, being aware of risks and favorable opportunities – a balancing act between chronos and kairos, etc. Leaders need problem-solving skills, courage and attentiveness, as well as decision-making abilities to drive things forward, change and reshape them in perpetually new situations.
She is now co-teaching one of our ongoing seminars, “Orientation for Leadership.”
