Everything starts and ends with people.
We believe everything starts and ends with people and that people and organizations given the right set of competences and support are capable of tremendous change. A change from within is authentic and leads to sustainable results.
Bridging the hard and soft world of business.
We believe in bridging the “hard and soft” world in business in order to create real and sustainable change and a competitive advantage. The best formed vision, strategies and processes are not worth anything if not properly implemented by people. At the same time the wrong vision, strategies and processes will not take the business to the desired position. They all depend heavily on each other.
Focusing on your Corporate Culture gives a true competitive advantage.
When a critical mass of people in an organization “walks the same talk” a shared corporate culture is the result. A corporate culture, “the DNA” of an organization, is highly unique for a particular organization and is unlike a strategy and a process very hard to copy. Hence an organization´s corporate culture becomes a truly competitive advantage in a highly competitive business world. A corporate culture must support the desired strategy otherwise there will be disappointments in the implementation.
Learn from the world of sports
By nature, professional athletes train hard in order to stay competitive and develop the needed skills in line with challenging goals. The same is true for the “business athlete”. By constantly training the needed skills a competitive edge is created and maintained.
Focus on strengths, deal with limitations
Just like athletes, business professionals and organizations are most efficient when they pay close attention to their strong points and focus on nurturing what is already good. Limitations needs to be dealt with and should not be the main focus developing.
We learn most effectively from our own experience
Just like we learn to drive a car mostly from actually doing it, the same is true when it comes to human behavior. We believe in helping our participants to bridge the “know how show how gap”. The main challenge is to actually live and breathe new attitudes and behaviors and transfer them into genuine personal ones by putting them into practice in everyday business reality.
Execution is everything
Despite good plans and intentions, the only thing that counts in the end is proper execution. If plans are not implemented they stay only as paper products. A culture of execution is a true competitive advantage to any organization. The importance of clear goal setting, prioritization of resources and constant follow up are essentials in order to succeed.
