12.45pm Panel 1 : Split, development, standstill based on the history of the Berlin Wall

12:45pm-2.15pm Panel 1
Split, development, standstill based on the history of the Berlin Wall

The Berlin Wall divided the city for 28 years. Since its fall in 1990 it became a symbol for a split that has been successfully overcome. As a monumental building, it was also a striking symptom of a profound split within the German-German society that still holds on. How are dividing processes of social realities associated with splits in the inner world? Did the Berlin Wall, similar to the myth of the Tower of Babel, mean that people in West and East no longer speak the same language? What role do memorials play in the process of working through the side effects of the history of the division of Berlin? The panel addresses these and other questions in discussion with each other and with the audience.

12.30pm Panel 2 "Tackling the Twice"

12.30pm - 2.15pm: Panel 2
Tackling the Twice

In an early, previously unnoticed text, Freud (1893) coined the phrase that it was mankind’s hottest wish to be allowed to do something twice. This Twice marks a form of repetition that has always been the source of fate for humanity: the first time it just happens to us, the second time we wish to do it by ourselves. Freud’s formula tells us about dealing with traumatic experiences, painful cuts and fateful repetitions in tackling the Twice. But why do things repeatedly go wrong when we try to ‘do it by ourselves’, even while attempting to avoid bad choices? Currently, the world community has again been hit by dramatic events: pandemic, racism, climate change – all effects of human decisions and choices. The question of whether humanity will tackle the Twice to ensure its continued existence has become an ethical challenge. The panel raises the question of how repetitions that go wrong can be dealt with in such a way that sustainable living conditions can emerge from them.

12.30pm Panel 3 "Organization and Leadership – What governance systems and individual power skills are really key to managing the effects of digitalized markets and globalized supply-chains in uncertain times?"

12.30pm - 2.15pm Panel 3

Organization and Leadership – What governance systems and individual power skills are really key to managing the effects of digitalized markets and globalized supply-chains in uncertain times?

Flexibility is a key capability for managing companies in order to meet the complex and fast-moving challenges of globalized supply-chains and digitized markets as we have seen intensified during the covid-19 crisis. On the other hand, we face neo authoritarian patterns, marginalization of ideas and ‘walled up’ thinking in organizations and companies. They point to deeper rigid societal patterns, especially in education, that continue to be imparted. They slow down the change in values in companies, for example the inclusion of women or people of culture in top management positions and they also impair the agility of the organizations. The capability for adaptation of every organizational culture deserves to be analyzed. Because in complex and fast-moving competition, the success of companies is decided not least by their ability for adaptation through cooperation, mutual respect and a deeper understanding of the value deficits in the way they respond to demand from customers and citizens. Overcoming prejudice against business partners from other cultures or individual colleagues requires emotional maturity, social skills, and an understanding of the psychodynamics and power of unconscious valencies – and so does understanding the situation the organization is in.
