Dr. Gustav Weder's interests in scientific research focus on the following three topics:

1   Organizational Leadership Development - leading an organization

This topic focuses on the following questions: How can an organization achieve a high quality and sustainability of its leadership, ensure the alignment of its leaders with strategy implementation, manage the timely individual development of its leaders, and develop and consistently leverage leadership quality for competitive advantage?


2   Individual leadership development - leading oneself and others

These topics focus on the following questions: How can an individual acquire outstanding expertise in a specific area of activity and maintain this level over time? How can a group of individuals implement a common concern quickly and sustainably?

3   Optimal action - using the example of high speed

This topic focuses on the following question: How can an individual act optimally in a field of action with high (change) speed over a long period of time?

He investigated this and similar questions in the context of his doctoral studies. In order to obtain meaningful data, experts from the fields of action sports and aviation were interviewed qualitatively and their statements were systematized. The abstract of this work can be found below. If you are interested in the complete publication, please contact me.

During the data collection process of his doctoral studies, interviews with speed experts were conducted, which may be of interest to a wider, less scientifically interested audience. Two such field reports have been published in the "Journal of Excellence", University of Ottawa in Canada.

In the course of his studies in (sports) psychology and economics at the University of Ottawa, he also reflected on his personal experiences as a repeatedly successful Olympic participant in the discipline of piloting a bobsled and summarized them in an article in the Journal of Excellence, University of Ottawa in Canada.
