Management at Knorr-Bremse.

Our convictions that lead us in managing our staff.

Good leadership is decisive for our company’s performance, as well as for its innovative capabilities and enduring success. The management team has a special responsibility here – for creating a work environment in which employees can fulfil their potential in the best possible way.

Knorr-Bremse’s Leadership Principles signpost how they can successfully do so, based on the concept of transformational leadership. This calls for leaders who aspire to be role models, who inspire their teams and fire up the desire to reach their shared goals; leaders who stretch, encourage and appreciate each individual, and who ultimately endow their roles with meaning, so that everyone understands the thinking behind what they do, generating top performance and results from their staff. The basic prerequisite here is a genuine interest in other people, because then it becomes possible to align each individual‘s ongoing development with their personal strengths.

The Knorr-Bremse Leadership Principles are:


Leadership begins with an honest look at oneself.


Leading means stepping forward, not standing idle.


Targets are about numbers. Reaching them requires inspiration.


Leaders create fertile ground for people to grow.


Strong leadership is not about words, it’s about results.

We are looking forward to helping you.
