Leadership According to the Bata Philosophy

Tomas Bata believed that it is only possible to change people’s behavior by setting a personal example and that people will never do more than their boss is willing to do for the cause. It was only possible to rise to leadership positions in Bata’s company if one demonstrated quality results in one’s professional life, but also if one set an example of a person of character and morality.

How to use the principles of Bata leadership today and how to become a personal example for those around you? Many answers can be found in understanding the Bata philosophy of service. Both will be presented in the lecture.
