Yvonne Pokropek is the HR Director for 13 countries within the DB Schenker group. She has a background in the union, the HR team in Port of Gothenburg, at LEAR Corporation and now more than a decade within the forwarding company DB Schenker.
Yvonne has the experience from many different management styles and has her view clear on what motivates people; good leadership. We have an interesting discussion what good leadership contains and how to develop people reporting to you.
We have a long conversation about how to get more women to the top management positions and from there into the Board rooms, where Yvonne now has reached a point where she thinks quotation is the only “quick fix” available.
In the beginning of this episode a swear word (?) is used, apologies for that if you feel uncomfortable. Personally, I didn’t know it was a swearword, that might say something about me..
