Abstract [en]

Perception of today’s business is characterized through movements on globalization, transnational companies and global networks across the whole world. The perspective of a leader in the field of acting has moved from a national to a multinational level. Also the abilities and skills which are needed to develop further in order to succeed in this global transformation have changed. This thesis project, entitled ‘What needs a leader?, will touch upon these prospective abilities and skills. In the growing global economy the abilities as a prospective leader must continually develop. It seems to us that leading and not managing people is the first approach in direction of efficient leadership. Lead- ership and Management cannot be compared; one is about people, and the other one is about facts. Thus, in our thesis we take this as a challenge to develop the component of leadership further and want to explore which specific skills are needed.

Communication and emotional intelligence are two fields of knowledge, which have received a great deal of focus in this research field high. Thus, only a few researches have concentrated their research on both fields of knowledge as a powerful leadership tool. Our thesis discusses the relevance of communication aligned with emotional intelligence as an efficient leadership tool in today's global networked society.
