Our WHAT

ORGANIZATIONAL TRANSFORMATION

ORGANIZATIONAL TRANSFORMATION

Shape the future of your organization with clear vision, strategy and behavioral design.

ParP DNA -check-up & Repair

With our “genetic” method, we analyse together with your decision makers the hinderances and blind spots in the 6 factors of the ParP Model: structure, processes, practices of the organization as well as the skills, willingness and barrier of its people, and set the direction for your needed adjustments with a concrete plan of action.

 

 

Employer Attractiveness

High personnel turnover? Not finding the needed talents? You win new people but in the same speed you lose them? Or do you struggle with lack of employee engagement?

We support you to re-design and align People & Place to increase your employer attractiveness and to become an organization where great and talented employees want to be part of and stay. With corporate value check, exit interviews and DNA diagnoses we can analyse your pain points and define the needed adjustments for the future.

Corporate & Leadership Culture

Are your leadership principles and your purpose are in line with your company DNA and your strategy? Your corporate and leadership culture is the heart of your organization and therefore essential for a sustainable future. Alignment of People & Place is the key especially in merger & acquisition situations, reorganization and change processes.

Behavioural Design – Learn to Unlearn

Even when you have the necessity and courage to try new ways, you stuck in old pattern and find yourself at the start point like a boomerang? You are failing to change and turning your strategy into practice? In our Behavioural Design program, we provide you the framework and systematic approach for designing human behaviour. Our design reveals completely new perspectives and prepares you for sustainable transformation.

Strategic Execution

Having the right strategy is a necessity. Applying the strategy is hard work. We accompany your strategy execution journey by aligning People & Place. Let’s discover the best execution route your strategy will take. Let’s identify the path, the road blocks and the tactics to overcome them.

LEADERSHIP TRANSFORMATION

LEADERSHIP TRANSFORMATION

Develop your people into the working world of tomorrow with workshops, development programs and learning transfer.

Development Programs & Workshops

In our transformation work we focus on the current and future needs of your organization. We translate them into a new language. Your people develop a new mindset and behaviour. Then they seed a culture of growth in the whole organization and shape a new leadership approach focused on your intended future. You can rely on our modular programs, or we’ll go with you in co-creation to get exactly what you need.

Here some inspiration for you:
Conflict Management, Decision Making, Effective Delegation, Growth Mindset, Leading Self, Leading Others, Leading Change, Management to Leadership, Mastery in Communication, Feedback Culture, Mentoring and Coaching Skills, Team Development and Collaboration, Toxic Communication and Behaviour, Unconscious Bias

Trial & Error Culture - Fostering Innovation & Trust

We never lose – we either win or learn…

In our Fail-Share-Grow program we focus on learning from failure and daring the extraordinary. Boldness to try new ways is what develops an organization, drives innovation and creates the future. By sharing our trial and errors we learn to unlearn old patterns and transform ourselves and our workplace to a place of trust and cooperation. Developing a Fail-Share-Grow culture supports your leaders being agile and resilient.

Future Leadership Skills & Behaviour

To be prepared for the world ahead of us as organizations, the next generation of leaders must be skilled, innovative and connected in a global way. Leaders must be able to bravely and effectively respond to an agile work environment. What are the skills that your organization might need tomorrow? How can you make sure your leaders are ready for the future?

We can support you to check your leaders’ competencies to see the gap with future leadership competencies and prepare a development plan accordingly.

Agile Team Collaboration / Group & Team Dynamics
SUSTAINABLE IMPACT

SUSTAINABLE IMPACT

Enhance individual and team performance and get the most out of your people by discovering and appreciating their talents and uniqueness.

Individual & Group Support – Coaching, Mentoring, Sparring

Leaders and key players need sparring partners to reflect on their daily actions. In order to have an impact it’s crucial to honestly assess own doing. We accompany you in dealing with complexity and ambiguity with an external view. Our methods encourage leaders to reflect on their daily challenges in periodical meetings. They deepen their awareness regarding their own perception, strategies and personal role. They identify new behaviour fitting to their unique business environment. We use tools like Executive Coaching, Sparring Partner, Development Follow up, Mentoring, Transfer Talks, Peer Learning, Team Coaching, …

Transfer Effectiveness Learning APP
Strengths Based Development Center

We believe that every person is unique by nature – what makes the difference is basically “environment” and “experience”.

What about creating a safe environment accurately designed for the needs of employees and the company; an environment, where your employees will be able to show their abilities on an equal basis, come out with an improvement plan consistent with the company expectations?

Understanding of your people competencies and potential allows making decision based on facts, more effective and aware organizational choices, plus guaranteeing career development programs and consistent growth.

OnBoarding Plus / People & Place Integration

Our OnBoarding Plus is an orientation and support program that enables the new hires to onboard them to the new role in the most efficient way to add value to the company in line with business targets. OnBoarding Plus provides new hires with resources to become emotionally, physically and professionally engaged into the organization’s culture.

Research shows us that the quality of an onboarding dramatically impacts engagement, performance and continuity among other important factors. The faster a new hire feels welcomed in the company and prepared for the new job, the faster they will be able to contribute to the company’s success.

Promotion Decision & Key Position Selection

We truly believe that there is no right or wrong person. Every person is unique by natureand seeks the right place to unleash their full potential. We have a deep understanding that every single position requires the right mix of talents, interests and experiences. Thus, the selection should go beyond job descriptions and competency sets. The alignment of People & Place is an essential step for objective decision and should be incorporated into the selection process.

Our customized approach and well proven methods enable you to make objective decisions for internal promotions, key positions and successor selection in a more impactful and sustainable manner.

Our TEAM

We are an international bunch of dreamers, determined transformers and passionate realisers who seek to promote growth and development. We encourage out-of-the-box thinking, sustainable changes, and future-oriented work. Above all, however, we LOVE working with people.

“Everybody has their own potential. The important thing for the individual person is to find the right place to be and work.

We are dreamers in this world, and we believe that when people find themselves in the right place, this can change our society. We do not only provide partnerships to companies; we provide a fellowship for their transformational journey. I want to deliver impact to transform their actions and create a great place to be.”

Our VALUES

In everything we do, we align ourselves with our beliefs, values and purpose: JOY, CURIOSITY, BEING REAL, FELLOWSHIP, INDEPENDENCY and our lighthouse leading us to deliver IMPACT.

We think, feel and act INDEPENDENTLY

We strive for independence in everything we do - regardless of social constraints, conventional ideas or any rules that once made sense. Having our own space, not being forced or pushed against our will and values, and having the playground, deciding for ourselves where to do what and when to take the initiative - for us, our team and our customers – with the freedom to create meaning and sense.

We are FELLOWS of a common journey

We are more than colleagues or friends – we are FELLOWS. We know that we can rely on each other and receive support when needed. Although we are spread over different places around the world we are not alone, always standing behind each other. We are connected and aligned – digital and face to face – and going hand in hand with our common purpose

We dare to BE REAL

We “walk the talk”. We are brave, confident and transparent. We dare to say what needs to be said in a caring, empathetic manner and in true dialogue. Authenticity, being real and natural is key to us. We are certain to be loved for who and how we are. We feel certain in gaining new experiences while exploring innovative ways. We have the space for trial and error, share them eagerly and let ourselves learn from them - because we are human, and we are real.

We explore and transform with CURIOSITY

Our curiosity pushes us to learn, to develop and to experience in an agile way with the desire for constant transformation. We strive for growth, wisdom and doing things better than yesterday. Our curiosity invites us to leave our comfort zone and embark on a journey of transformation with our customers - for a new work experience along paths no one has ever dared to go before.

We love what we do with JOY

Everything we do, we do with joy. Also, it is our compass to say “no” to things we do not love and that do not fit to our purpose. We value ourselves and pay attention to our resilience. We are in the flow with our passion and happiness. We live for the present and entrust ourselves to the life process with joy and fulfilment. Full of confidence and positive perspectives, we develop our true selves more and more. This motivates us to do our best and go the extra mile.

We deliver IMPACT

In everything we do, we deliver impact. We focus on meaningful and sustainable approaches, our attitude and behaviour, our fellows and the world around us. While we say what we mean, we keep our promises and take responsibility for our results. We believe that only when people and places go hand in hand will true transformation happen, and visible impact be created.
