At the centre of all our research is the topic of "Re-Generative Organisation". Organisations of the future must be resilient, with vitality and interdependence, mastering challenges. However, they should also be generative, enabling development and excellence and using their creative potential for the good life of all reference groups. In essence, this means: strengthening professional values, fostering a climate of trust-based and renewal-oriented cooperation, and creating central structures and human resource management that enable excellence and prosperity. Topics that we particularly focus on at the Chair and also illuminate empirically are motivation, trust (and distrust), (practical) wisdom and ethical leadership.
