Der Deidesheimer Kreis

The Deidesheimer Kreis has no patent remedies. Here you learn from the experience of others, from stories and an inspiring dialogue. No more and no less.

Inspiration

Since 2004 the DEIDESHEIMER KREIS has been carried and inspired by personalities who authentically stand for leading organisations with courage, mindfulness and foresight. They are people who are committed to lifelong learning.

Dr. Ulrich Schweiker was one of the four founding members of the Deidesheimer Kreis in 2004.

Suddenly and completely unexpectedly, Ulrich passed away in April 2023.

Ulrich was always a loyal and valuable friend and companion to us. For some of us, for more than 30 years.

He was a management consultant, lecturer, freelancer, and independent professional. He had a long career as a human resources manager and, most recently, as a business angel, entrepreneur, and investor.

In these roles, he always stood out with his commitment, inspiring and fearlessly fostering critical thinking in organizations, society, and academia. As a result, he touched the lives of many people and influenced them with his work.

His successes in all these fields were diverse and extended far beyond Germany to the rest of the world, and now they continue beyond him.

His anchor and support were his family, to whom we extend our condolences!

Learn

The Deidesheimer Kreis has no patent remedies. Here you learn from the experience of others, from stories and an inspiring dialogue. No more and no less. Story telling and generative dialogue are the experimental and highly effective forms of communication in the LEADERS CIRCLE. Since time immemorial, it has proven to be a very special and exciting way of sitting in a circle of competent personalities, learning from and with each other.
