The program for effective leadership through personality and purpose
There are delays in processes and projects, decisions take a long time, the results do not meet the expectations and your employees are frustrated. At the same time, competition, speed and complexity are increasing.
Topics are too complex and the speed of change is too high. Problems cannot be solved quickly enough following the line hierarchy. At the same time, “Smart Work”, agility and reaction speed are the order of the day.
You experience underlying conflicts or open power struggles, egoism and silo-thinking. The conflict potential from differing interests and goals in the leadership team can have a massive impact on the entire company.
They want leadership on equal grounds and clarity about the purpose of their work. They need future-oriented and charismatic leaders who inspire them; hierarchical and functional power are not enough in order to lead organisations and teams to achieve successful results and to be prepared for the future.
Generation Y in particular want to know the purpose and value of their work and take on responsibility quickly. It is more productive to lead with visions and values, trust and strong relationships, openness to dialogue and co-creativity than with classic hierarchies. Leaders must provide direction. At the same time, it is their task to enable autonomy and to focus more on results than on activities. The “Transformational Leadership” approach and “Leading by reputation” is especially effective in agile environments.
Respected managers and project leaders must also be confident at managing themselves. They recognise their strengths, but also the weaknesses that arise when the pressure grows too high.
You need a comprehensive solution that can be employed quickly and pragmatically in your organisation. You do not want to just treat the symptoms, but to tackle the root causes. To achieve this, you need the support from someone who is very experienced. I will familiarise myself deeply with your organisation and your particular needs. I will take your management team on a journey into a world where everyone does the best they can to serve the greater good – instead of just doing the best they can for themselves.
My “Purpose-Driven Leadership Program“ addresses all of these factors.
You would like to establish a clear “Why” as the basis for your work, to inspire and motivate your employees even in uncertain times. You would also like to define and train the “How” of collaboration through an attractive mission statement. It must be noticeable both internally and externally in order to provide a sense of direction. The outcome will be a strong identification with the values of your company.
A clear, resilient vision provides a sustainable foundation and a bridge over the waters of uncertainty. This vision will generate constructive optimism about the future. A shared, meaningful purpose is your North Star, releasing energies and harnessing the power of emotions in a targeted manner. This brings about huge potential for change; you will feel that united action is possible, important and necessary. Ideally, this action will also provide a contribution to society.
You are looking for an effective way to develop your leadership team, where they can find and strengthen their common foundation through constructive dialogue. You need someone who understands the dynamics of a consultant team of “Alpha Males/Females”. Using well-founded methods, I will help you to improve collaboration in your team. The right team spirit and identification with your purpose are key: they determine whether the common values and spirit of your consultancy are embodied in your interactions with each other and with your clients.
You want leaders who recognise their own creative potential. Through collective excellence and binding commitment, you can engage this creative power for your shared vision.
Using the proven method by Simon Sinek, we will uncover the raison d’etre of your team – therein lies your commitment to action.
Using innovative methods, we will design a strong, meaningful vision together, based on a solid “Why and What For?”. This will be your guiding light even in stormy times.
Goals: We will direct ourselves toward to the characteristics of a high-performing team. Together, we will devise a binding “Code of Conduct”, i.e. the rules of the game for mutual collaboration. The goal is to generate a generally positive view of the team. We will achieve a trusting team environment in order to promote the strategic development of the organisation in the best way possible. Through continuous guidance and supervision of the management team (and individual coaching, where needed), we will ensure a successful journey toward your vision.
Hogan is an assessment tool from the USA developed for executives. I am a certified Hogan-Coach and have been using the tool successfully for many years. I use it to support managers, CEOs and proprietors.
HOGAN is the only provider worldwide to include the three perspectives of personality (Potentials, Derailers, Motives/Values). This enables you to describe your employees in more detail. We will discuss this “As Is” analysis in a detailed feedback session. It forms the basis for an explicit development plan.
Hogan can also be used as a team tool. In its aggregated version, the Hogan-Teamview helps (leadership) teams to better understand their “Team-Autopilot”.
Team-Autopilot describes the dynamics that arise almost automatically from the similarities and differences between the personalities in the team.
The Hogan-Teamview will answer the following questions:

Mission statement development: In this workshop, we will work with your values, team culture and interactions within your team and with your clients
You want to give your leaders a new perspective on leadership and collaboration. You want to achieve amazing results and become stronger together – in alignment with your developed mission. You are searching for levers, concrete strategies and tools to achieve this shift in consciousness. You want to know how it works in practice.
The seminar “Leading on eye-level” will show you the way. You will learn to successfully employ these levers by applying a modular approach, utilising a variety of strategies and tools.
Preparation through prior reading, reflections, key questions and advance calls with several participants.

What you can expect:
“I” Level: More presence, personality and charisma through strategic self-awareness and good self-management
“It” Level: More clarity and focus on goals using effective influential strategies
“We” Level:More trusting relationships, convinced colleagues and binding collaboration through commitment-communication
You now recognise that when everyone is connected to their creative energy and their own “Why”, (power) conflicts become unnecessary; by default, everyone does exactly what is needed. In an environment where there is mutual trust and everyone feels safe, the power of connection and the joy of shared success is visible.
My clients can rest assured that they are purchasing a comprehensive solution. This goes far beyond classic team development or training. It anchors the commonly developed vision deeply amongst the entire team. This enables clear, noticeable positioning. The result is a stronger differentiation from your competitors and greater sustainability in the long-term.
The leadership team experiences an internal and external transformation process. Your employees develop a greater enjoyment of co-creation and shared success. They will notice that the leadership team acts with greater self-awareness, are developing themselves and have a better sense of direction toward meaningful goals. They will work together, rather than against each other.
You will find that leaders with a culture of trust are better at focusing on what matters. They are good communicators who win over your employees with their personality and their strategic focus on the shared cause. They act as role models, standing on equal grounds, empowering, challenging and supporting others, while also enabling co-creativity. They communicate the value and purpose of the work and motivate your employees to become more engaged and committed.
You can rest assured that you have been provided with relevant formats, space for development and proven tools. You will create a leadership team with high relational and persuasive skills. Your team of experienced personalities will have courage to shape the future together with your employees. Inner access to mindfulness, trust and intuition opens up new solution pathways.
My clients can rely upon my experience to identify and understand their pain points and challenges. I work together with them to find solutions for their specific context.
It is time to think about a new perspective and a paradigm shift in leadership and collaboration.
