Leadership Development

Creating competitive advantage

“Leadership is key to our company’s success.” So far, so good. I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all leadership style. Instead, I am convinced there is a fit between the leader’s unique personality and the company’s organisational culture, situational challenges and team characteristics. That said, there is one thing about leadership development that is beyond question: a one-time effort it is not. It requires constant learning.

For me, leadership is the ability to co-create an organizational environment that promotes health, adaptability and effectiveness. This requires individuals, teams and networks to craft and cultivate qualities such as awareness, connectedness, dialog and resilience.

Leadership Training

Developing leaders means empowering them to discover who they really are and how they can positively influence the performance of their team and the organization. I offer long-term leadership development programs. Depending on the scope and complexity of the program, I work alone or with a small network of trusted partners. The design elements of my programs often include:

  • Remote or in-person learning nuggets on best-practice leadership models.
  • Self-learning modules to deepen or apply leadership theory.
  • Breakout sessions to discuss real-life cases.
  • Peer learning to training content and to build a leadership community.
  • Coaching vouchers to ensure individual transition and leadership performance.
  • Activation sessions and retrospectives that frame the program.

You can read more about my understanding of leadership in my latest book (in German) Self-Empowered Leadership – Führungslust statt Führungsfrust.

Leadership Offsites

High performance leadership teams are the nucleus organizational success. Thus, leadership quality is not based on individual heroic leaders but on cohesive leadership teams that share the following characteristics:

  • Leaders are not afraid to show their vulnerability.
  • Diversity and differences are valued.
  • A strong sense of belonging and of ‘being one team’.
  • A shared vision and strategic priorities.
  • Clearly defined roles and responsibilities.
  • Enthusiasm and a sense of humor.
  • Passion for leadership.
  • A desire to develop and grow as a team.

Get in touch with me if you feel that any of these characteristics is underdeveloped and, consequently, is a potential risk for your company’s future growth.
