Am I the right person for you?
Independent consultant, focus on organization and team development. That's me, and of the sort there are many. Therefore, it should be clear at the following points for you, if you and I fit together!
What I’m good at and really enjoy: Teams first!
I work a lot with groups and teams - leadership teams, departments, large groups, or even project teams - with two main focuses:
1. Consulting & Facilitating
Often teams are involved in major change processes, even more in the digital era: structures or roles change, the strategy needs to be adapted, or tasks of the team are turned upside down.
My contribution: method and process consulting
My job is
to choose a good course of action that contributes to the team value creation.
to develop a process with the team that leaves enough room for adaption.
to harness the natural hierarchies of a group. And sorry: the idea of flat hierarchies is Bu ** sh ** - it does not exist!
My technical-methodical focus:
Self-Organization & Agile Approaches (e.g. Lean, Scrum, Holacracy): Work at eye level
Strategy: Being competitive in the digital era
Innovation: What can we (still) do, whatever the world needs
Change Management & Business Transformation: How do we deal smartly with open-ended processes?
Often teams have internal issues: open or covert conflicts or disagreement over the rules of the game. The video clip about the company values won’t help in that case: it’s about being open and honest with each other, and it’s about diving beyond the surface to discover the conflict’s roots.
My contribution: Developing the team
First I let myself be commissioned by all involved - that is duty, no free skate.
When I am on board, I open a safe space in which the team talks about stumbling blocks of cooperation.
I am usually the one who appeals to the pink elephant in the room.
Teambuilding & role understanding (e.g. for new teams, interdisciplinary teams, project teams)
Team Performance Coaching & Work Organization
Conflict Management & Communication
Decision-making processes and team responsibility
2. What I’m not good at - and what I don’t enjoy:
I clarify with you without any rush whether I am the right one for your challenge. We might check in personally or by phone / Skype / FaceTime.
