Timo Meynhardt

Professor for Business Psychology and Leadership,
HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management


Timo Meynhardt is full professor and chairholder of the Dr. Arend Oetker Chair of Business Psychology and Leadership at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management and managing director of the Center for Leadership and Values in Society at the University of St. Gallen. In his research, he links psychological and business management topics, especially Public Value management, leadership and competency diagnostics. He is strongly committed to research in the field of public value as well as to the application of the concept in business and administration. Timo was the first researcher to apply the concept to the private sector. He developed a unique public value theory, which conceptualizes public value as “a necessary fiction” for individuals and groups. Timo publishes the Public Value Atlas for Switzerland and Germany (www.gemeinwohlatlas.de, www.gemeinwohl.ch), which aims at ranking and making transparent the public value of companies and organizations. He also developed a Public Value Scorecard, which provides a management tool to measure public value creation along five basic dimensions. Together with Ernst & Young Ltd., he launched a public value award for start-ups. He also chairs the public value award for public baths in Germany.
