In Detail

Reinhard Sprenger studied philosophy, psychology, economics, history and sports at the Ruhr University Bochum, receiving his PhD in 1985 from the Free University Berlin. His books have sold more than half a million copies in Germany alone. The continued success of his books has made him one of the most-read management authors. His previous positions include being Executive of Human resource development and Training at 3M in Germany and scientific advisor for the Ministry of Culture in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. His expertise has been sought from numerous national and international firms such as Coca-Cola, 3M, Mobil Oil, Philip Morris, Daimler Benz, Hewlett Packard and Siemens.


Reinhard Sprenger embraces the vision of an individualised company, which places people as the main focus. "Leading" according to Reinhard, means above all encouraging, finding the right task for the individual to provoke superior achievement. He squarely confronts the notion that trust is a necessary foundation for individuals and organisations to maximise their potential over time.
