We support three systems of different sizes: the organisation with its divisions, the executive with its employees and the individual person with his personality traits. The same success criteria applies to all three - clarity among decision-makers and stakeholders about the goal, a common understanding of the way and the determination for going it despite uncertainties and possible conflicts. We support you continuously on site or assist you on a case-by-case basis with individual measures.
70% of the strategies fail not at the strategy itself, but at their execution.
The most frequent stumbling blocks: there are good ideas and operational goals, but too little bundling of them in a strategy, a just roughly implemented execution process or unsettled executives. Although the workforce executes, it also complains about the lack of relevant information, focus, coordination or self-responsibility. The result is a drop in performance, loss of speed, demotivation.

Through measures like:
Support of management board, executives and employees in the development of a common management understanding through workshops, seminars, coachings. Implementation of performance appraisal and qualification program (service).
Consulting, accompanying and coaching of plant management during implementing the execution and review strategy. Conducting workshops on strategy execution and change management (mineral oil industry).

Consulting the management in the development of a vision, derived strategies and objectives, cascading the goals down to the employee level, designing master plans and scorecards as well as carrying out status analyzes (automotive).
If the executive does not lead, the employee does not cooperate.
Leaders have to deal with new challenges or want to be more secure in their daily business. They should give orientation, motivate, become more flexible, deal with conflicts in the team and lead prudently in the change processes. That’s not easy.
We support leaders of all levels, project managers and entrepreneurs among others at:
Through measures like:
Support through seminars and coachings with the focus on change management, employee discussions and time management. Project work on a strategically important project (media).
Focussing again coach and players on relevant topics as well as on solution-oriented co-operation. Appropriation and discussion of sensitivities to strengthen team spirit and cooperation (sport).

Those who simply go for it seldom reach the goal
Actually you should start, but you are like a stricken duck in a thunderstorm. There are many ways, but which is the right one? Or the start succeeds, but on the way to the goal threaten distraction and declining stamina. How do I get better? How do I develop my potential?
