PWN Vienna Linkup & Learn: Press, Pressure, People - Leading in a Pandemic and Beyond

09 February 2021 18:30 CET - 20:00 CET Online - Zoom

Uta-Maria Ohndorf, General Manager of Roche Diagnostic Austria, was already in the middle of a huge challenge - supporting the digitalization of the healthcare system in Austria - when the pandemic hit, and the company had to shift its focus to COVID-19.

As a manufacturer of diagnostic devices, Roche Diagnostics Austria had to react quickly to the new threat. Their enormous task was (and still is) to distribute a wide array of SARS-Cov2 Tests, including PCR test, antibody tests and rapid antigen tests used in mass screenings to support Austria in keeping the pandemic under control. This task involved accelerating procedures that normally took months, and doing all of this under the pressure of ‘life or death’ stakes.

Uta-Maria’s challenge: How to steer a course into the future and guide a ship, and be ready to move in a new direction depending on what lies in unchartered waters. How do you deliver top results in a time of crisis, under the critical eye of the press, and still guarantee a healthy work-life balance for yourself and your team? How do you apply agile principles in a dramatically changing environment?

Discover the answers in our event with Uta-Maria Ohndorf, General Manager of Roche Diagnostic Austria

Join us on our Linkup & Learn event on February 9th and you will hear Uta-Maria talking about the major and unexpected challenges she has been facing during the pandemic and how she took action to overcome them.

What you will learn

You will learn how choosing to lead with deliberate calm, new openness, and focus on intrinsic motivation is crucial to successfully navigating through uncertainty and dramatic changes.

For Uta-Maria, “The greatest danger in times of a transforming environment is not the transformation itself, but acting with yesterday’s logic.” 

We look forward to seeing you!
