We create something new with our heart in the clouds and our feet on the ground
A real transformation requires not only new skills but above all a change in attitude. We support you and your employees in this process
VUCA, globalisation and digitalisation – it is nothing new, that work is changing in the wake of these trends. People talk about New Ways of Working and mean above all agility and with it co-creation, speed, self-responsibility, experimentation and value orientation. This change affects people, teams, and the whole organization. But it’s not enough to teach new skills; it’s necessary to establish a culture characterised by courage, respect, commitment, and openness. And that often requires a change in the mindset and the behaviour of everyone.
We no longer call it change, but transformation
Neue Herausforderungen erfordern neue Lösungen . Die Orientierung an Best Practices funktioniert nicht mehr.
New challenges require new solutions. The orientation towards Best Practices no longer works.
We accompany, coach and support the acting individuals, teams, and organisations in approaching their image of the future step by step. In doing so, we bring in our different experiences and perspectives and develop new ideas and approaches to shape the transformation.
People learn how to get out of their comfort zone and into a learning zone. Through our special approach to facilitating, teams develop a trusting cooperation, which is also reflected in their performance. Organisations create their own image of the future and change their culture and structures appropriately. In the process, we provide support and orientation, as well as fun, in the new. Because we are convinced that even a serious matter, like a transformation, can only succeed together and with joy.
“The only constant in life is change.” Loosely based on the Greek philosopher Heraclitus, this quote describes our times quite aptly. In the corporate context, change is often referred to as “Change” Teams are changed, new software is introduced. This kind of change may be strenuous, but it demands relatively little from those affected. Transformation, on the other hand, describes a holistic change. Not only external structures are changed. A transformation touches individuals and organisations more deeply – in their personality and culture. Our goal is for you to learn to shape transformation in a positive way and to grow as a result.
In contrast to counselling, coaching assumes the coachees carry the answer to their questions within themselves or can develop it themselves with interventions by the coach. In contrast to therapy, coaching is less concerned with coming to terms with the reasons for the current situation. Instead, coaches support their coachees in shaping their personal and professional future and in promoting a deeper development process.
Facilitators accompany teams in developing co-creative solutions to challenges they face. This can happen in individual workshops or in a process over a longer period. As with coaching, it’s the team and not the facilitator, who develops the solution. With our approach to facilitating, we help our clients design innovative concepts, services, or processes.
The culture of a company is understood to be the lived values, norms, and attitudes of all employees. Lately, the culture no longer stops at the company boundaries, but rather considers the so-called ecosystem in which the organisation is located (suppliers, clients, recruitment markets, etc). Now, a company’s culture cannot be changed just like that. Starting with a strong image of the future and involving the whole organisation, new values will be gradually operationalised and integrated into the daily cooperation. We accompany and choreograph the whole process up to implementation and evaluation.
Communication plays an important role at all times, and at all levels of a transformation. The teams involved must communicate with each other and with their stakeholders. Co-workers who are not directly involved must be informed of the transformation. Through storytelling, target group analysis and use of the right channels, we establish a comprehensive and sustainable movement.
The image of a leader has changed dramatically in recent years: away from heroic, strong personalities with the claim to lead via technical expertise, towards leaders with a clear vision, who bring together people from across departments and with a diverse set of talents. We support managers and companies in developing their people in charge, based on their corporate context.
