The Second European Managers Conference took place near Milano, Italy from the 9th until the 10th of April 2016. Under the motto ‘Managing Change and Growth through Human Values & Spiritual Leadership‘ 35 managers and interested came together in ‘Mother Sai Conference Centre’, including a representative of the Italian government in Rome and the major of the region Varallo Pombia.
On both days the participants coming from Norway, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Croatia and South-Africa intensively worked in workshops on three main topics of the conference:
- Creating awareness for the need of a value based management
- Exchanging experiences of implementation
- Establishing a platform for spiritual management
The invited CEOs and managers Manfred Müller-Gransee from Germany, Markos Lyras from the United Kingdom and Thomas Rohland from Holland spoke about their experiences in implementing a management structure based on the five Human Values Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Love and Nonviolence in their companies. In two further discourses the trainers of the ISSE Institute South Europe, George Bebedelis und Vassiliki Stephanides from Greece, deepened the understanding of the concepts of Truth and Righteousness. Afterwards these new insights were worked out together with all participants in several workshops. At the end a panel discussion and a brainstorming session took place to identify how to proceed with this important topic in future.
