“Are the right people on the bus?” is the classic approach. Wild change scenarios lead always to commotion followed by loss of productivity. Talent management can help in those cases.
The interim manager is more focused on what is possible with the current team and on how to bring everybody’s talents into full bloom. The goal is to bring all persons into contact with their authentic selves, to let them discover their styles so that the organization is able to feel its value once again. During the process the environment will be redesigned so that working in one’s personal style becomes not only possible but also profitable.
The interim manager has a strong belief in this rule. Due to the combination of operational management and advanced psychology the interim manager is highly qualified to design tailor made coaching concepts. All coaching projects follow a strict time line with hard start and end dates defined right from the beginning. After the goal “what do we want to learn?” is identified, the whole plan for the journey will be determined. It always leads to the goal.
The execution of the coaching follows many different shapes and colors. It may vary from observation at the work location, teaching conversations, the performance of exercises, realizing projects or even artistic expression. Homework is always part of it.
Every management team can be brought to a higher level of professionalism. The interim manager proved himself in several management teams during his carrier in the free market economy. Many things went right and also many things turned out not as intended. Most of the time the meetings were too long, the action-log was endless, the deliverables were behind schedule. What happened to all those issues passed along and the sometimes so brilliant ideas? And here I’m just scratching the surface. In every oh-so-harmonious management team there is also competition, and not everybody is really telling the truth. As a consequence there is mostly only little or even no energy at all. A training of the management team can bring this undercurrent to the surface.
The interim manager can bring much change with only little effort through a short period of training. With hands on mentality and with a lot of humor your MT will be given a lot of insights. As you know this is the first necessary step for a possible change.
Compared to other consultants and trainers who like to impress or even disorient you with a lot of theories, the interim manager distinguishes himself due to his unique profile, which combines straightforward hands-on management with a humanistic leadership style.
