What makes a leader great?

The leadership is often what makes or breaks how happy the employees are at a company. This is a fact: several studies and surveys show the importance of having great leaders as well as values.

As many as 57% of employees report that they have left their job because of their manager. You might even be one of them, in which case, we hope that you will find your next step with us at Columbus.

We have developed our leadership principles to create a culture where you can thrive and grow every day – and lead others to do the same.

Everyone can be a leader

The principles are for everyone.

Columbus' Values

Our values and leadership principles go hand in hand

A great leader without values is like a lighthouse without a light. This is why our leadership principles are, just like everything else at Columbus, based on our four core values: Stay Curious, Build Trust, Collaborate, and Deliver Customer Success.
Our values are the foundation of our ways of working, and our leadership principles aims to give further guidance and act as a complement covering all aspects of leadership. Together, they shape the culture we strive to embody at Columbus.

Our 3 leadership pillars

Our principles are divided into three parts: Strategy, Operations, and People. Learn more about how we work with each of them below.
