P1 / P1 People - This is us / Dr. Reinhard Schmitt

Dr. Reinhard Schmitt


When I was young I found people and their behavior to be a fascinating puzzle. That is presumably why I chose to do a technical degree – only to then dedicate myself to the structuring of collaboration and to decrypt the “human factor.” I focused on systemic organization theory and neuroscience and met interesting people at Process One (today P1) who I could work with on new approaches and concepts. “Clarifier” and “enabler” are printed on the business card of my life – this is what results after applying the eponymous self-leadership tool to myself. Sounds about right.
