KATHARINA AS A LEADER

Success can be very diverse and is defined differently by every person.

Leadership is not not telling others what they have to do.

Great Leaders are role models.

The future of leadership is diverse, inspiring and always a team effort.

When I think of a leader, I think of several people who have accompanied me on my journey.
