Co-Founder, Verwaltungsrebellen, Essen, Germany
Together with her colleague Sabine Schwittek, Dorothea Herrmann founded the initiative "Verwaltungsrebellen" (governmental rebels) aiming to show that the civil service can do differently from being slow, boring and bureaucratic. They encourage, motivate and connect cross-thinking and innovative people in public administration who are pleasured by working for the common good.
Dorothea Herrmann is co-owner of synexa consult. Since almost 30 years she supports people in public administrations and non-profit organizations in improving their collaboration. And in enjoying their work. If things don’t go smoothly, sometimes it is due to the complexity of human interaction. But sometimes the causes are inappropriate methods and ways of working. As a psychologist and business information specialist, she understands both perspectives and creatively merges them with her clients.
