Into the newest edition of the Ed Schein classic „Organizational Culture and Leadership“ (5th edition, John Wiley 2017) our long term friend and mentor wrote the following autograph:
“ To my friend Gerhard Fatzer, a colleague of many years, my champion in Europe, a great proponent of Dialogic Organization Development, and an important Co-Conspirator in bringing our view of OD to the Swiss and German audience. With many thanks and good wishes for the future. Ed Schein 05/22/17″
This was at the occasion of our most successful conference „Humble Leadership“ with HWZ and Trias Institute on the 23rd of May 2017 in Zurich, where Ed participated live in a keynote from California.
Thanks to Ed and his son Peter Schein for the present and future collaboration.
Besides the break out groups with Karin Vey (IBM), Antoinette Weibel, Prof HSG, Sybille Sachs, Prof. HWZ and Guy Kempfert (Straumann)
the second highlight was the history keynote of Dr. Daniel Schmid (HWZ, head of academy) about
„The journey to TRSTNA“, an exclusive history piece about the Schein family in Switzerland, and their stations of the emigration.
HWZ and Trias are following up with a workshop on „Humble Leadership“ with Gerhard Fatzer
on the 25th and 26th of October 2017 in Zurich.
Gerhard Fatzer is the longtime cooperating Partner of Ed Schein and his son, editor of the book series „EHP Organisation“ , with all the German titles of Ed Schein and a lot of American OD classics, and the co editor with Ed Schein of the journal „Profile“ (a daughter journal of „Reflections“ of Peter Senge and M.I.T.).
