At Schaeffler, we value a modern leadership culture. A culture that is based on transparency, trust, and teamwork. Our managers assume responsibility for decisions while also encouraging others to make decisions of their own. An open culture of feedback and trust in the abilities of others is an important basis here. We are constantly questioning the ways in which we lead, how we work together day to day, and how we define good, modern leadership.

Against this background, our six leadership essentials provide the framework for Schaeffler’s leadership culture and day-to-day guidance for our managers.
