Josef Schmidt is baker master management trainer and carrier of the Federal Cross of Merit.
Josef Schmidt, born in Upper Franconia in 1934, took an unusual path from master baker to management trainer. His practical experience is condensed in the management model “UnternehmerEnergie” and the Josef Schmidt Colleg in Bayreuth, which he founded in 1985 and hands over to younger hands in 1998.
But he is also continuing his life's work with numerous lectures and other books on all aspects of corporate management. Awarded the Cross of Merit 2003st Class in 1, Josef Schmidt now spends most of his time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. But he does not give up thinking about ethical questions - the result is his new book “Wirtschafts-Ethik”.
