Leadership Wisdom & Insights - Executives in conversation with Dr. Erika Maria Kleestorfer

Ms. Mag. Petra Draxl (Regional Managing Director of the Vienna Employment Service), interviewed by Dr. Erika Maria Kleestorfer, allows us in this conversation insights into how leadership is shaped in times of Corona.

Questions such as:

* How can other managers take their employees along with them during this time?

* How can I be mindful of myself?

* How can the employees be brought back into the work process?

* What should you be prepared for by the end of the year?

* According to the motto: Every crisis is also an opportunity, what opportunity has arisen from this crisis so far?

We would like to thank Ms. Mag. Draxl for this interview.

The Journey

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice -
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
"Mend my life!"
each voice cried.

But you didn't stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.

But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do -
determined to save
the only life you could save.
