We specialize in improving the performance of Senior Management as a team.
We have developed a methodology that enables the creation of the right context for team members to perform at their maximum capacity.
This is our approach and the benefits we achieve.
- Create, understand and/or agree on a new strategic direction or a new Management style.
- Build real trust among members.
- Openly discuss problems respectfully and effectively.
- Redirect energy towards achieving results instead of squandering it on issues of internal power.
- Help define a common challenging goal.
- Establish operating agreements that guarantee compliance with what has been agreed.
- Hold practical and focused effective meetings.
- Define behaviors using world-class tools in line with the business strategy as defined by the CEO.
- Responsibly delegate operating issues and devote time and energy to strategic matters.
- Become aware and be a model of the defined culture through their behavior for the rest of the organization.
- Achieve better results sustainably over time, as a result of making fast decisions focused on the objective.
- Enjoy their work.
We work with regional, country and area-level management teams in a 100% practical way.
Why a team may not be working well.
- So-called “teams” that are actually just groups of people, not teams.
- Wasting time or energy self-protecting themselves rather than moving forward.
- Taking too long to make decisions or meet goals.
- Silo working and low levels of collaboration.
- Mistrust among members or tense atmosphere.
- Non-positive image in the rest of the organization.
- Teams that don’t manage to meet the established objective.
- Members who don’t hold the decisions they make as a team when interacting individually with the rest of the organization.
How we do it.
- In-depth conversations that go to the bottom of situations and feelings.
- Respect for time and confidentiality.
- We earn our trust by showing understanding of the business, our métier and our clients’ needs.
- We focus on working on real issues, establishing actions and the specific people in charge.
- While we have a methodology proven by years of successful work, we adapt it to the needs, characteristics and culture of each client in each case.
