For the eighth episode of the leaders talk podcast, host Mahdis Gharaei is joined by Christina Wilfinger, the Managing Director of SAP Austria. Christina talks about how playing music as a child helped her discover not only her creative side, but also assists her in the tech industry now. She also shares her vision of leadership and points out how it’s different from management by metaphorically comparing these themes to playing football. Mahdis and Christina touch on the topic of parenting and work-life balance, and how one can draw energy for new projects. Christina goes on to tell us what an „office day“ is like at SAP Austria and how it contributes to team cohesion and interest groups within the company. She sheds light on how more female talents need to gain confidence for taking on a leadership position, and shares how she helps to reduce the leadership gap with her personal example.
