Become future resilient. Goals

How do I win the hearts and minds of everyone involved to go new, previously unknown paths? This sentence describes the essence of my work as a strategy coach. Especially in these times, everyone is challenged to sustainable change. The expectations placed on companies are constantly increasing. Employees, customers, partners, society and many others want companies to take on even more responsibility. Strategies have to be developed and implemented sustainably to ensure the long-term survival of the business. I advise and accompany you in preparing and driving these changes.

The tasks of companies and the demands on managers and their employees have increased exponentially in the recent past. They continue to rise. The challenges are also becoming more complex and multi-layered. The reaction time that managers have is also decreasing as more crises occur.

In addition, they have to keep an eye on the constantly emerging legal and social demands, especially on sustainable management.

The mass and rapid pace of change can overwhelm management and staff. They can put a heavy strain on the organisation as a whole and on the working ability of certain teams in particular. In the worst case, meaningful structural changes and strategic considerations are not introduced in time. This can lead to problems in the value chain. The core business comes under pressure. If the shortage of skilled personnel becomes also effective, it seems that new ways may not even be implemented because employees are missing.

As a certified organisational developer and coach, I support my clients in developing and sustainably implementing strategies to cope with this change.

During our collaboration, we first go into your individual situation: As an organization, as a team, as a person. Together we look at your corporate DNA and define goals that you want to achieve by implementing a strategy.

Then, if necessary, you define new guiding principles. The mission and goals of your company or individual divisions as well as your very personal ideals are also put to a check-up. In the course of my consultation, it is then in place: A strategy that will make you and your organization fit for the future.

If you wish, I will support you in implementing the measures that have been decided upon once you have defined your strategy. I will help you to think and act more in terms of value chains. In addition, I would be happy to show you how you can deepen and strengthen the bond with your staff and your partners in the long term.

As a certified organizational developer, I stimulate finding processes for new values, missions and goals and structure your strategy development process. To ensure that the people in your company are strengthened to go through the change, I accompany them as a coach in the implementation of planned changes.

 

In structured discussions, workshops and anonymous surveys, I will show you ways to better retain specialists and find new ones more easily. Together we identify all areas in which implementation decisions are made. The path to more sustainable management needs to be well prepared.

Changes of and in organizations require good preparation through strong strategies, for example:

 

  • Precise definition and joint reflection of the desired state
  • Preparation and structuring of the strategy development process; Implementation through stringent moderation and documentation
  • Identification through participation: Staffing of the strategy working groups with participants from management, delegated employees and, if possible, close business partners

 

I would be happy to discuss my working methods in a non-binding introductory meeting.

How can companies start to operate more sustainably? As a strategic coach, I support you in defining this path, going it and later implementing it together with your team. Start-up activities of this may include:

  • Definition of your concept of sustainability in your specific context
  • Actual analysis of your organization’s management regarding sustainability using a checklist
  • Development of a sustainability strategy considering materiality
  • Accompaniment up to the certificate of the ZNU standard for sustainable management or e.g. up to your declaration of the German Sustainability Code or another sustainability assessment
  • After the successful establishment of a sustainability strategy, I am available to small and medium-sized companies as an external sustainability manager

There is not the one path to sustainable change, but together we will find the best way for you to get there.

Coaching is a person-centred support and consultation process based on a concept. Therefore, my coaching offer is always based on your needs and the requirements with a view to the people involved.

Through conversations at eye level, I encourage you to increase your self-reflection by using questioning techniques and other methods that are individually adapted to you. I support my clients with individual coaching of people in charge and decision-makers in overcoming the challenges.

As part of the coaching, you will learn to reassess your challenges and problems from other perspectives and decide on measures for yourself that you would not have explored on your own.

The shortage of skilled professionals is affecting more and more medium-sized companies. External support from experts can help to bind specialists to your company in the long term. In cooperation with the freelance HR consultant Andreas Hümpel (ALMA-Vesta GmbH), I will help you to get closer to this goal. Together we can increase your attractiveness as an employer, for example by:

 

  • Determination of your employer value through structured interviews or surveys
  • Development of strategies and measures for ways to become a more attractive employer
  • Creation of an employer branding concept based on your desired employer value, if necessary support of the implementation with partner agencies
  • Search and integration of new specialists

PROFILE.

I see myself as a strategy coach and accompany my clients at eye level. My goal is to ensure that strategies, once developed, are implemented sustainably. This can often be hindered by the people themselves, new complexities due to the sustainability requirements of society or the shortage of skilled professionals in the market. I am comprehensively trained for these topics and am also happy to pass on my experience as a successful manager of many years. I advise companies and private individuals in all sectors. However, my focus is on growth as well as sustainable management in the agricultural and food industry.
