The digital revolution has made a major transformation – it does not stop at any industry and changes our environment and our lives.
The challenges that companies face in the course of digitalization will go beyond the scope of technology and processes. Over the next few years, business organizations procedures will evolve and terms like “Digital Transformation” or “New Work” will be synonymous with these big changes. The dimensions of corporate structure and culture are largely ignored in these transitions creating uncertainty for management and employees.
As a consultant, my passion and focus are to coach organizations, managers, and employees in these times of dynamic change to strategically plan and navigate their organization through the transitional periods whether it be to structure a foundation, establish best practices, or enhance procedures.
As leadership objectives and target achievements are redefined, shaped and brought to life in the course of corporate transformation it is my goal to provide support for managers to project, plan and navigate this process. By applying traditional managerial application skills, it will be a core resource providing employees with support and guidance in a technology-driven dynamic environment.
I support you – as a manager – to resolve the challenges of changing our company world. This means to show and communicate with others which attitude you represent and what is important to you as a person. Credible, reliable and predictable leaders are the foundation of mutual trust, which is essential for collaboration.
As your company evolves during the considerably challenging and continuous changes it is important to remember to have fun in the process. Therefore, humor has its place in the consultation. “Everything has three sides: a positive, a negative, and the funny.“ (Karl Valentin)
