- How can we as a leadership team create a common vision of the future and act as role models?
- How can I design the change process so that my people accept and support it?
- How do I achieve sustainable changes in mindset and behavior?
Off-site leadership meetings are about discussing strategic questions as a leadership team – with sufficient distance to daily business. We support you in selecting and working up topics and strategic questions, so the agenda has an arc of suspense and the discussion leads to results. As professional facilitators we ensure result-oriented debates with a difference – to help you advance not only content-wise but also as a team.
We support you in the analysis phase prior to a potential change. Whether with focus groups on specific topics or with taylor-made workshops to find improvement areas.
A Change Architecture defines the systematic observation and organisation of psychological and structural success factors in a change process. One important result is the action plan which defines measures of communication and involvement of employees along the change process (see figure for example). The plan is reflected and adapted continually to fit new developments and expectations that occur during the change process. We recommend nominating individual employees as „change agents“ to build a broader basis for the change, especially when it is global.
We consult and coach the leadership or project team along the change process, mostly acting as part of the extended project team. Together with you we clarify whom the change affects in what way, and how these people can be involved and taken onboard. Also, change architecture and project management are defined. In regular meetings we reflect the progress and potential issues or pitfalls together, and give an outside perspective to support you in defining your role throughout the change.
You want to get your organization fit for change? We offer trainings and workshops for leaders and/or change agents. To develop a common understanding of change management and the role leaders or change agents play in it. Particularly with regard to the sandwich position and to practical tools including the preparation of sensitive personnel discussions.
In change processes workshops are a helpful means to discuss background and goals of the change, and to engage the employees in the implementation. We support you in preparing the workshops or large-group events, and facilitate them in a professional way. Whether with 20 or 250 participants.
