Do your executives, managers and talents multiply corporate strategy and do they implement it decisively? Do your executives decide as quickly and effectively during growth periods and when coping with crises? If you would like to start a change initiative, will your executives be active organizers and do they possess requisite leadership tools?
Customer excellence is part of corporate strategy. It requires orienting all activities towards external and internal clients. This is strongly reflected and driven by the leadership and management behavior of executives and managers. Whether for classic executive development or as part of institutionalized personnel work: Our program achieves rapid effects with clear strategy and situation related focus.
Examples of challenging initiatives with strategic consequences are:
–> Strategic and/or operational re-orientation e.g. post leadership change
–> International and domestic expansion
–> Innovation management
–> Restructuring, crisis management
–> Interdisciplinary project management
–> Integration of purchased companies (M&A)
–> Spin off of company units (carve outs)
–> Cultural change
The success of these initiatives is highly dependent on how effectively the integrated protagonists deal with leadership responsibility and decision-making authority. This, again, is dependent on how qualified, authorized and motivated they are.
Not every executive is a brave decision maker, not every project leader is a good conflict solver and not every expert is a skilled communicator. Some studied leadership, communication or management techniques are suddenly no longer valid because basic fundamentals have changed. Special situations require a special approach. For successful change management, one needs appropriate tools: Effective management techniques and the capacity to quickly make the right decisions and implement them vigorously.
Interim managers are particularly utilized when coping with crises and restructuring. This often makes sense in the short term but is not a long term solution. In addition, not every executive can be substituted. It is existentially important for a company that particularly its established leadership keeps pace.
Many organizations today have a strategic mission statement with corresponding values, behavioral rules and corporate targets. It is by no means self evident that such mission statements are successfully applied in daily business. The main reason for this often lies in the protagonists’ lack of concrete knowledge of shaping the values and behavioral rules on site. Executives and employees are not conscious of which actions and behavioral patterns comply with or infringe on mission statements in given situations. The result is an erosion of corporate culture, which can eventually lead to disorientation or compliance transgressions and economic problems.
We take inventory with our clients, develop concrete patterns of action and instruct these on a sustained basis using our special method. This inspires the desired mission statement as value creating corporate culture, characterized by targeted behavior.
Each human being is known to be different. Therefore the executive who is proactive, authoritative and a skilled communicator - all at the same time and at all levels - is an ideal. This is why we take an even closer look at the qualification required for meeting this ideal as much as possible.
Effective Method Mix: From Personalized Training to E-Learning
We qualify the involved protagonists in the relevant management techniques. Accordingly, they advance strategic initiatives in a targeted manner: Swiftly and long-term at all management and in all functional areas. Our spectrum, from which we tailor an individual program, reaches from presentation to negotiation to appraisal interviews in conflict situations (to name a few dimensions). Top managers must cope with other decision-making and communications situations as the on site team experts. We therefore offer the entire range of our methods from personal instruction to simulation training and our multimedia learning tool. Each protagonist in the change process can tap into his/her maximal potential and have an added value effect.
If necessary we also support our clients during the entire strategic initiative by planning the complete project, co-navigating, reflecting and giving the protagonists additional impetus: As a partner, counterbalance and expert until successful completion.
