The secret of success is not to foresee the future. But to create an organisation that can prosper in any unforeseeable future
Convert clients to fans, co-workers to heroes.
You want leadership that inspires.
The result is high performance.
You are the expert for your problems. We are the experts in the process of identifying options, hypotheses and solutions. The coach moderates, stimulates, inspires and accompanies you on your way to the fitting result. We support you with coaching for individuals and teams.
• How do you proceed when you have important decisions to take?• Do you have the opportunity to reflect openly and intensively and to review behaviour patterns?• Where do your values and true talents lie?• How do you improve your skills and your personal competencies?• Are you happy with your life balance?• Do you have goals, and are you achieving them?
Your personal coach will not feed you with tips and solutions, but he will accompany you on your own personal path to more effectiveness and quality of life. He will question you, listen to what you have to say, give open feedback and help you on your path to clarity and consistency.
We see individual coaching as an event-related, time-limited form of support that should be completed after 3 to 10 meetings over a 3 to 15 month period. The major objective is to unleash our client’s solution competence, to strengthen their self-competence, and to help them reflect on themselves.
Telephone or e-mail feedback between appointments is available and useful.
• You have a new team or leader?• You observe conflicts within your team?• Is there a new project on the horizon that demands team success?• A new challenge?• Do you want more willingness to change?• More openness?• More creativity?• Do you want your employees to fully commit to new objectives?• Establish new leadership behaviour in your management team?
The participants will have a few months to put their new experience into practice and to implement the goals they set for themselves in the initial workshop. Follow-up workshops (1 to 2.5 days) will examine how far the self-defined goals have been achieved and what obstacles came up. The team will be challenged by new exercises so they can review the own progress and develop themselves further.
As the project progresses, conflict-solving methods will be learnt and applied, roles are defined within the team, the culture of meetings is optimized, guidelines and exemplary behaviour are defined, successful stress management will be experienced, and so on. Tests such as Process Communication Model and exercises will help participants to get to know and appreciate one another better. All of which makes your team more effective and successful.
Norbert van Rooij, General Manager Austria, Grünenthal
Working with Dirk is fun. He is team- and results-oriented and loves working with people. His unorthodox and personable style generates unexpected business opportunities. Dirk’s innovative leadership concept has significantly increased our EBITA over 5 years. Grünenthal has become one of the fastest growing companies of the market.
Roberto Jongejan, MD PhD, Regional Director, Forest Laboratories Europe
Many highly educated pro’s are demotivated by what happens with their contributions in the Corporate Sausage Machine. Dirk has an unconventional approach on how to engage people. He gives them trust, freedom to operate and mobilizes their talents. The team therefore achieves great results. Money is spent on growing and not on policing. So returns go up as well!
Susanne Martin, General Manager, Gedeon Richter Austria GmbH
Management in most companies resembles an inflexible planned economy; performance and creativity are more blocked than encouraged. Dirk is a pioneer of positive change management in a New Leadership culture. His energy and his commitment to the creation of a performance-oriented leadership culture characterised by mutual trust and decentralised responsibility have had a long-term influence on me and my ongoing professional life.
Frédéric Bengold, Country Manager Switzerland, Servier
Dirk is a leadership personality who brings an extraordinary combination of credibility, culture and openness. He strives passionately for solutions that always relate to the people. That makes him a partner with an enormous added value for professional projects.
PD Dr. Klaus Hoerauf, Global Lead Medical Affairs, Baxter, USA
Dirk’s application of new leadership principles has produced amazing results. The entire team was electrified by the results of working in autonomous, self-responsible teams. Together with the overall concept, decisive aspects were the change management and the “how to get there”. The teams were strongly networked; this implementation yielded significantly better results. And it was great fun, too!
