Business Philosopher Anders Indset rewarded “Thinker of the Month” for two consecutive months

Thinkers50 recognizes thought leaders for unconventional thinking and a radically new approach

(Frankfurt) Anders Indset, Norwegian-born business philosopher, author, and speaker, has been named “Thinker of the Month” by Thinkers50 in July and August 2018. The prestigious ranking of the world’s most important and influential management thinkers recognizes Indset’s radically new approach to linking practical philosophy with management. In February 2018, Indset was already taken on the “Thinkers50 Radar List” as the only representative from the German-speaking region. The Radar List is a global circle of 30 leading thinkers, who from the point of view of the Thinkers50 experts will have a lasting influence on organizations and leadership in the future.

To be able to cope with the future, companies not only have to change individual building blocks in the corporate organization but in fact have to develop a completely new operating system. It is essential to fundamentally transform leadership, cooperation, and value creation. How this can succeed is clear to Anders Indset: “We need the philosophy of the past, paired with the science and technology of tomorrow.” Therefore, the business philosopher and international thought leader has set up the “Sa. | shapingwork academy “- the world’s first academy that specifically translates models of philosophy for practical application and combines them with leadership methods and management concepts. Indset adds: “What we need today is a renaissance of thinkers. Never before has it been so important to re-raise the old questions of ancient philosophers and to reflect on the concept of ‘being human’. For the first time in human history, we are in the process of moving authorities from humans to technologies and algorithms. Just because we can. But does it automatically mean that we should? We are in the process of creating a society in which progress for mankind can only be achieved if science and philosophy go hand in hand. “

Anders Indset is one of the world’s leading business philosophers and a trusted sparring partner to international CEOs and political leaders. Titled “Digital Jesus” and “Rock’n’Roll Plato” by the media, he is currently one of the most popular keynote speakers in Europe with his approaches to practical philosophy. Born in Norway (Trondheim), he lives in Frankfurt and is the owner of Sa. | shapingwork academy, the first corporate and executive education academy based on practical philosophy. By combining the best practices of leadership, management, and execution with philosophy, it offers participants a radical new approach to corporate education. Indset is also a visiting lecturer at leading international business schools and a member of the supervisory board of the German Tech Entrepreneurship Center (GTEC).
