In 2016 Aarhus Symposium delved into the theme “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 this art can accomplish extraordinary things. Power is indeed a very complex matter. It is in no way static as it evolves in relation to states, businesses, and individuals.
At Aarhus Symposium 2016, we invited fourteen leaders and key decision-makers to give their perspective on the theme. They contributed to an understanding of how you put power into practice through four subtopics: Industry Power, People Power, Digital Power, and Geopolitical Power. Hereby, they shed light on the possibilities and limitations related to power – today and tomorrow.
