Current Projects

• Prof. Dr. Georg Kraus is currently doing research regarding the connection between change and "survival mode" at the German University of Clausthal. The research is about behavior of people under stress in the uncertainty of change (corporate).

• He developed a typology of possible reactions in change of people in survival mode based on a model (survival mode) developed by his colleague Prof. Robert Weisz, a professor at IAE* Aix-en-Provence Graduate School of Management, part of Aix-Marseille University in the South of France and head of ComProfiles Institute, a research and training centre specialized in the fields of Emotional Intelligence and Leadership.

• Robert Weisz developed "survival mode" at the IAE* Aix-en-Provence Graduate School of Management part of Aix-Marseille University in the South of France. During change people are driven into the "survival mode" faster by the uncertainty and this potentially holds the danger of a negative dynamic in change.
