15. February 2023 – Astrid Berndt

As General Manager SportStyle, he helped the “cat” from the rummage table to the catwalks of the world.

His lectures focus on topics such as employee leadership, team culture, value standards and communication.

Reinhard Dischner in interview

1. What are the core subjects of your keynote speeches?

Reinhard Dischner:

A turning point in time needs a turning point in people. How do we as managers deal with this turning point in time? How visionary management helps to manoeuvre safely through a crisis. Why passion is the right driver. Why human values are more important today than ever before.

Globalization brings new challenges in the workforce – how do we deal with them? How can we find our way in a multicultural environment? NuWork – what makes generations xyz tick? Feeling is the new leading.

2. Which audience or which branch do you reach with your speech?

Reinhard Dischner:

As a manager, I primarily address executives at all levels, from department heads to board members, entrepreneurs of all stripes. As a doer, however, I also move every employee in a company or organization. As a human being, I also build bridges to everyday life. The trick is: the manager, the doer, the person is often one and the same person in the end.

3. Are you a PREMIUM SPEAKER? Where do you get your insights from?

Reinhard Dischner:

I have worked very successfully in the top management of various companies over the past decades, most recently with the sporting goods manufacturer PUMA. Taking the cat from the rummage table to the catwalks of the world and to the best retail locations was my drive. I have been successful on all continents and love to prove “it doesn’t work” statements wrong. I have successfully led global multicultural teams and met stars in the entertainment and sports industry – from a side that not everyone knows. And I have learned a lot from them: great stories from which everyone can take something away, professionally and/or privately.

4. What will be in the future? Does «time» play an important role in your work?

Reinhard Dischner:

“What is time?” an Indian colleague from Mumbai once asked me. That would be my spontaneous answer here. Circumstances, conditions, zeitgeist etc. change, but ultimately it is always us humans who must juggle these situations, preferably in such a way that all the balls stay in the air. So as long as there are people, my métier is fully involved. Change is constant.

5. Tell us your life motto? What do you want to give your listeners to take with them?

Reinhard Dischner:

Life is a wonderful game – and you win!

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! We live in a time that definitely has many challenges. But we ourselves and others also make it difficult for us. The basic principles for running a successful business, relationship or friendship are not subject to space or time. If you understand them, you can always be happy and successful. I wish that for everyone. From the bottom of my heart. Why not today? Be happy! Be!
