Leadership and management

What kind of problems can we solve?

These days the greatest challenge in the business is the lack of involvement. Weariness or even burnout of entire generations of people who build Polish market economy, increasing multigenerationality (the need to meet the expectations of generation Y and the following ones), growing competition and increasing complexity of the market, stronger emphasis on effectiveness, restructuring and changes… It all turns the leadership and management model that prevailed at the time of Polish transformation (feudal, overly directive and operational) from a development catalyst into a barrier. Versatile and flexible leadership is the key to increase employee involvement which, in turn, translates into better hard business results.

What are the effects of our work?

We help our clients change the leadership model and management method to increase employee involvement and effectiveness. We support the development of versatile leadership model based on styles adapted to particular situations. Usually, we help them convert to more participatory operations which engage employees. We support the development of poorly developed work styles in Poland – a leadership model focused on the development of employees and pointing a direction – based on a shared vision. We offer complex solutions – starting from self-management, through operational management (of employees and a team), finishing at strategic leadership. If there is such need, we help to construct the foundations of management based on four management functions.

Why should you work with us?

Our know-how is a combination of the best models in the world and our original solutions. We are an exclusive representative in Poland of a leading global brand specializing in leadership - the Ken B. Companies.

We wrote books about the best management practices in Poland (Dobre Przywództwo). Our clients include the best companies from various sectors.

Winning teams

What kind of problems can we solve?

  • The quality of teamwork is unsatisfactory, the team fails to accomplish expected objectives, the team’s ‘clients’ are not satisfied, the resources go to waste, human potential is not used, people are unwilling to cooperate, conflicts between team members are to be solved by the leader or a superior employee 
  • "Dead’ teams":
    • In terms of energy – the team lacks energy to work together, working together dissipates the energy of the team rather than stimulate people
    • In terms of creativity – the team resorts to routine solutions and it is not capable of experimenting with new ideas, the knowledge contributed by new team members is not used 
  • Lack of effective leadership in the team. The structure of the team and/or the competencies of the leader are not enough to build a successful team or handle the changes and crises in the team

Change management

What kind of problems can we solve?

The successful introduction of a change is determined by the involvement of people. Although organizational change often triggers negative associations at the beginning, as time goes by people tend to appreciate its pros – we can accelerate and manage this process.

We support our clients in the planning and introduction of changes to make people permanently engaged in the process

We address needs associated with:

  • Uncertainty about the plan and mode of implementation of a change;
  • Communication management in the course of the change process;
  • The need to make the management staff prepared to guide the employees through the changes;
  • Inconsistency between visions and messages at various management levels;
  • Responding to the symptoms of resistance to change, conflicts and tension, the risk of employees leaving the company;
  • Lack of involvement in the implementation of change on the part of employees.

What are the effects of our work?

  • Planned and well-communicated process of change which takes into account the scale of change, expected results, desired organizational culture and various groups of stakeholders – so that it strengthens the involvement from the very beginning
  • Management staff prepared to fulfil its role as the leader of change (in terms of emotions and theoretical knowledge)
  • Change leaders/agents who understand their role and possess knowledge and tools which enable them to support the implementation of a change

Why should you work with us?

  • It is 15 years since we started working (developing tools and work methods) on the involvement of people in the process of change and supporting the management staff – we are aware of the fact that effective exertion of influence over employees requires one to influence their mode of thinking and emotions
  • We work in the context of an organizational culture of a particular organization

Negotiations and agreements

What kind of problems can we solve?

We support people, teams and organizations in the performance of operations that favour agreement within the company and between the organization and its external partners, suppliers, clients. There are hundreds of negotiations conducted within an organization at the same time - office workers, marketing specialists, customer service specialists, salesmen, buyers, project managers and management staff – they all negotiate. Negotiation ranks among the most important methods of reaching a business decision. The ability to reach an agreement is important whenever people confront their values, views, needs, expectations, and share their resources or coordinate operations.

What are the effects of our work?

Agreement is enriching. Those who completed our developmental programmes or participated in our trainings are prepared to conduct even the most difficult negotiations, both in terms of the determination of objectives, development of a strategy, and handling emotions and exercising power in difficult situations. Negotiation is the easiest way to generate profit or make savings in the company. At the same time, it is one of the few skills whose improvement produces immediate and measurable results. The ability to manage relationships, solve conflicts, mediate and facilitate meetings favours the establishment of conditions for effective and creative work, and it makes people feel enthusiastic and energetic. The participants of our trainings are able to manage conflicts – they can see and use the potential arising from a conflict, and turn it into a stimulating and integrating agent that supports development. They are able to facilitate communication and improve the cooperation between departments, team members, and between the team leader and team members.

Why should you work with us?

Negotiations and working towards an agreement are subjects in which we specialize and are passionate about. We have experience in work in sales departments and manjuagement positions. We have been helping our clients reach agreement, solve conflicts, mediate, negotiate, and we have been providing them with negotiation advice and support in the formulation of company negotiation policy for 10 years. In 2007 we opened the first in Poland one-year School of Negotiation based on business practice. We conducted several successful crisis interventions within teams and between departments. We completed a number of conciliation processes. We use more and less advanced work methods, as well as more and less intensive trainings and developmental cycles. We make use of consultation and supervision of negotiation processes.

Individual effectiveness

What kind of problems can we solve?

We work with people who face challenges such as time pressure and work overload. We tell them how they can deal with every-day stress, or stress caused by the perspective of public speaking in front of employees or a large audience. We support companies in the development of innovation at each organizational level – starting at the stage of identification of business needs, finishing at the stage of implementation of ideas in the form of the implementation project. We help to instil the sense of responsibility in every employee, and to find the appropriate motivational perspective in order to accomplish established goals.

What are the effects of our work?

Employees and managers who are acquainted with their priorities are able to make effective decisions on the operations which have the best application in business. Meetings within the company, the result of which are concrete products (decision, recommendation, plan of action). Interesting speeches whose meaning is clear to all listeners.
