04 May The Theme of Aarhus Symposium 2016 is: ”THE ART OF POWER”

The theme of Aarhus Symposium 2016 is ”THE ART OF POWER”.

Visible or not, power is truly embedded in leadership. However, possessing power does not necessarily imply that others follow your lead. To understand the art of power is therefore necessary to become a great leader. Leaders who successfully manage the art can accomplish extraordinary things. Leaders, who do not, will stumble and miss great opportunities. Whether power is associated with possibilities or limitations thus depends on the leaders’ abilities. Hence, power is of great influence for the future of states, businesses, and individuals.

We are looking forward to discovering the different perspectives from leaders of today and leaders of tomorrow on November 4.
