In these discussions, she zooms in on strategic challenges through internationalization and digitalization, sharing experience-based approaches which contribute to business success in this context. Her perspective positions HR as a strategic business function. Like any other business function, HR needs to work with forecasts to develop short and long term priorities which support innovation and business success.
Leadership quality and leadership development are core to these priorities: leadership as the ability to lead yourself, the team and the business, and to realize your values and competencies in an authentic way.
It‘s all about choices‘ is one of Jeanette’s beliefs – fueling her optimism and her passion to support others in their development, based on strategic and authentic choices.
