Business and employee management are key subjects in business administration. For decades, actually for centuries, there has been a discussion about how effective leadership of people or employees can be realized. It has always been a major concern within market-based economic systems to learn how its products and services should be designed in order to generate consumer demand. That the discussion about business and employee management is more relevant than ever is linked to the fact that leadership situations are influenced by a variety of external factors. They include, in particular, political, cultural, social, demographic, economic, and technological developments. It is therefore required for business and employee management to be adapted to those external framework conditions on a permanent basis. In former times, the assumption in mainstream leadership research was that leadership success relied on specific personal characteristics. Later on, the prevailing view was that the decisive factors in employee management lied in specific leadership behavior or leadership styles. Today's research on leadership is dominated by situation-oriented approaches, providing for specific leadership concepts for specific organizational and employee-related structures. The present thesis is an attempt to bundle a variety of approaches to leadership with the aim of providing an overarching framework for concepts of a similar nature. Therefore, the leadership concept to be developed in what follows is to be characterized by the principles of holism and sustainability. The first step is to present the fundamentals of leadership and management in order to introduce key terms and concepts and provide an overview of the research on leadership. Chapter 3 deals with separately displaying the business and employee management approaches of various management pioneers, distinguishing between early and con-temporary pioneers. Each approach is presented in consideration of its key elements, its strengths and opportunities, as well as its weaknesses and limitations. The fourth chapter, finally, is devoted to developing a holistic and sustainable leader-ship concept.

Nowadays many various leadership skills exist, such as organisation, goal setting, control, situation awareness or decision making, which have to be considered within an organisation. This assignment concentrates on the skill control. Control in modern societies and organisations is very important because ‘it requires the ability to dictate all activities, and it seeks to preserve stability and predictability’ (John Hagel and Brown, 2002, p.1). As Lenin quoted ‘Trust is a good thing, but control is a better one’ (Lenin, Werke, 1971, p. 358). This quote is controversial as it can be misunderstood. Control is not the only aspect but it is rather the combination of both, trust and control, which lead to an effective result. This work will give a review on the theoretical part and distinguish the terms control & command and control & trust. Moreover rewards and sanctions will be described in detail. Additionally the games will be discussed and evaluated according to the previous theories. Own examples can be found in grey boxes, which give a deeper insights on the topic.

Der schillernde angloamerikanische Begriff des "Leadership" wird auch im deutschsprachigen Raum immer gebrauchlicher. Vielleicht ware es im Interesse einer groJ3eren sprachlichen Klarheit aber sinnvoll, wenn wir uns wieder starker auf die positiven Inhalte des Begriffs der "Ftihrung" (Wirtschaftsfiihrung, Unter nehmensfiihrung, Personalfiihrung) besinnen und die damit verbundenen histori schen Belastungen verantwortungsbewusst tiberwinden konnten. Ftir die Ftih rung in Wirtschaftsunternehmen lassen sich zwei Dimensionen unterscheiden: - Die objekt- und sachbezogenen Dimension umfasst z. B. Ftihrungsentschei dungen zur Standortwahl, tiber das Produkt-lMarkt-Portfolio und tiber Inve stitionen. - Die menschenbezogene Dimension umfasst z. B. personelle Auswahlent scheidungen bei Einstellungen und Beforderungen, Entscheidungen tiber die Wertebasis der Unternehmenskultur, Entscheidungen damber, welche Instru mente des Personal managements, der Personalfiihrung, der Information und Kommunikation wie genutzt werden. Wahrend die Wirtschaftsunternehmen in der objekt- und sachbezogenen Ftih rungsdimension auf der Grundlage weitgehend anerkannter und oft standardi sierter Instrumente meist eine hohe Professionalitat entwickelt haben (z. B. Standort- und Unternehmensbewertung, Kosten- und Leistungsrechnung, Inve stitionsrechnung), ist die menschenbezogene Dimension der Ftihrung in der Wirtschaftspraxis hochst unterschiedlich und haufig defizitlir. Erfolgreiche Ftih rungskrafte der Zukunft brauchen den Mut zur Fiihrung und eine neue Fiih rungskompetenz."
