Eine inspirierende Zukunftsvision für Carlex

Wir praktizieren Value-based Leadership.

Herkömmliche Leadership-Modelle schauen nach innen und nach oben. In einem Value-based-Leadership-Modell führen Führungskfräfte durch Dienen.Value-based-Führungskräfte konzentrieren sich nicht auf sich selbst, sondern auf die Leistungen und Bedürfnisse der Personen in ihrem Umfeld.

Wichtige Eigenschaften unseres Führungspersonals sind die Fähigkeit zum Zuhören, Input von anderen einzuholen, Vertrauen aufzubauen, mit Integrität zu handeln, andere respektvoll zu behandeln, Teamarbeit zu befürworten und mit gutem Beispiel voranzugehen. Unsere Value-Based Führungskräfte beginnen jeden Tag mit Bescheidenheit.

Wir haben uns für das Value-based-Leadership-Modell entschieden, damit jeder bei Carlex wachsen, sich weiterentwickeln und seine beruflichen Ziele erreichen kann – und das in einer Umgebung, die Vertrauen weckt, hervorragende Leistungen fördert und dauerhafte Beziehungen aufbaut.
