enkelfähig Academy

The enkelfähig Academy is a beacon of our diverse, entrepreneurial and performance-orientated culture. As an enabler of our culture the Academy provides a learning environment where employees from all of our portfolio companies can develop and grow. Our offer is divided in three central building blocks that form the basis of our cultural development: Starting with foundational programs developed to help leaders and individuals learn behaviours that build a trusting and safe place to share their thoughts and ideas without recourse. Where equality means that every opinion is valued without bias, conscious or otherwise, and feedback and coaching is provided with the intention of making us better. These programs will additionally be available as a train the trainer program allowing for local delivery and adaption to local languages etc.


Two further building blocks – the Haniel Operating Way and Functional Programs – will provide a common set of guard-rails for all to use in our pursuit of out-performance by doing good, creating cross-company development opportunities. At the summit is leadership development, the enkelfähig Academy is the only place for leadership development within the Haniel organization. These programs will be co-facilitated by leaders from within the organisation to build relevance and experience from Haniel into the learning and shape this proud home for bold entrepreneurs.

The HOW2 Podcast

With starting the enkelfähig Academy we were looking for an opportunity to communicate with a lot of people, while also extending our Academy to have more time and space for learning. This is where the HOW2 Podcast was born. In the podcast, the two of us – Daniel & Matt – interview people from inside and outside the Haniel Group to learn and explore more about the Haniel Operating Way (HOW), our shared operating system.
