- leadership in an off-shore perspective
All theory and science shows that leaders’ behaviour cascades all the way down through the organisation. Good leadership will release energy to focus on the main task and will have significant impact on safety and efficiency going forward. It may all be about money, but what you invest on the top will show directly on the bottom line.
I have written an article on above subject. Pls. feel free to read it.
Team spirit and trust as a foundation for results.
“We had an exercise around our lifeline where we told each other where we come from, what you have experienced and what you are shaped by. It takes courage totell it - and you also get vulnerable by listening to it. You find out that youare not the only one whith a luggage."
"The dynamic that enter the room when we trust each other - what happens when we share things that matters to us ... For some, it can be interpreted as an exposure - for others it is something that helps to create a team. The exercise helps you to trust each other."
This is what a top manager says about a leadership team development process I was the catalyst for. The management team was newly establish through a merger of two large Danish companies. The task was to build trust and respect to maintain focus and results. We worked with strengthening the relationships in the team and thereby creating a new foundation and starting point for the leadership team.
Executive Coaching that help you remain calm and give room for leadership.
A top manager is in the middle of a major reorganization. He needs to help his part of the organization thorugh the transition while being part of the transition himself. There is no status quo and it can sometimes be difficult to navigate when the waves are going high.
Over a period of 1 year we met approx. every 3-4 weeks to ensure that the manager himself and his staff got through the massive changes. We worked on themes such as the leader's role, followship, relationships, power, emotional reactions in the organization etc.
“It's not everything you can or should involve your employees in. As a manager you are both a support and a filter for your employees. It is you who create a calm atmosphere and room for your employees to work on the maintask. And that means you cannot involve everyone in everything. There it was good to have Susannes as a sparring partner."
