The Path to Better and Healthier Leadership

Today, businesses are faced with the need to redefine leadership. There is a definite need to promote a healthier and more sustainable work life. We are confronted with several challenges, including increased work pressure and changing work conditions, that demand new approaches to leadership. Investing in employees’ education and skill development is essential, as it strengthens the organisation and creates a more sustainable workplace. But how should we approach this?


Christian T. Ahlers, R&D and Project Manager at Micro Technic, also observed such developments in the Danish labour market and believes that human well-being and a sustainable work-life balance are crucial for individual and organisational success. Consequently, he has embarked on a diploma in leadership, aiming to explore the paradoxes of leadership and challenge his leadership style.


With five years of experience as a self-taught leader and a background in engineering, Christian has always valued expertise and results highly. The engineer in him assumes that all connections are linear and causal, which ideally should also apply to his colleagues. However, he has learned that people rarely react according to linear and causal principles. His engineering perspective has been challenged over time, and he now recognises that people function more circularly than linearly. Experiences and reaction patterns are constantly shaped by past experiences, creating new perspectives and insights in a never-ending process.


Christian views a sustainable work life as more than just avoiding stress and burnout. For him, it is about creating a workplace where everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential and thrive. He believes that by being honest with himself, and his leadership, and being open to new perspectives, he can develop as a leader and create a more sustainable work environment for his employees.


Christian looks forward to challenging his beliefs even further, being inspired by the new perspectives he encounters, and learning how to best integrate his engineering background with new, softer leadership insights.


Last Thursday, Christian defended his first thesis, which analysed aspects of the leadership at Micro Technic. The thesis received high praise, confirming Christian’s dedication and ambition in his leadership role. We look forward to seeing how Christian’s new insights will drive further positive changes at Micro Technic.


By investing in a sustainable work environment and our employees’ development, we strive to create an even better and more inspiring workplace. As a company, we must take responsibility for our employees’ well-being, and job satisfaction, and support a sustainable work life, as it is crucial for both individual and organizational success.
