3. The press about us and our work
We have done many new exciting studies - and the press has caught wind of that. Please feel free to look through our press clipping and read the newest articles on: How women and leadership go together. Why respectful leadership matters. Why the symmetry of company logos apparently tells us something about the respective company's ethics. (Sorry, many of these reports are in German. If you are an
international journalist, feel free to contact us and do a press feature in English) ... www >>
4. New scientific papers

5. Collaboration with ThinkTanks
We at the RespectResearchGroup like to mingle across scientific border. Particularly, we are interested in inspiring the discourse on a societal level and have thus been actively involved in ThinkTanks.
were, for instance, appointed as ThinkTank members of the Stiftung Neue Verantwortung in Berlin. Their topics varied from perspectives on "the future of teacher education" and "how to create a more creative society" to "a redefinition of public leadership in Germany". The result were different policy briefs and books that can be downloaded from the ThinkTanks website http://www.stiftung-nv.de. We are happy to report that this year too two members of our group were again appointed to the ThinkTank of the Stiftung Neue Verantwortung : Dorothee Vogt will work on the topic of "a new culture of wealth" and Julia Johannsen on the topic of "excellent campuses". Likewise Jan Borkowski and Matthias Graf were invited as "leaders of tomorrow" for the Knowledge Pool of the 41. St. Gallen

Please understand that our priority is not to drown you in a flood of newsletters. We only send out newsletters if we really have something to say… and not merely for the sake of it. We think that this is a respectful way of dealing with our subscribers, even if this might mean that you receive the next issue in one or two months’ or even a year’s time. If you are interested in our research or in our group please do not hesitate to contact us.
