But how can we face these new challenges and make meaningful business decisions? The following four solutions complement each other, offer a holistic perspective and can be customized to suit every company. As checkpoints, they help to avoid “Wrong Turns”.
What’s fundamental for all four approaches, is a new mindset and way of thinking, in contrast to the traditional management ideology:
- In the past, managers could often think and decide causally. However, they must learn to think systemically to differentiate and understand the causes and symptoms in view of the complexity and dynamics of today’s business environment.
- While it was previously assumed that high performance is always at the expense of one’s own health, those responsible should now know that performance and health are mutually strengthening.
- In the past, people often tried to eradicate weaknesses by means of forced learning. Today, people know that when their strengths and potential are focussed, people can unfold their abilities.
- In the past, leadership meant authority, control, and infallibility; Today, leadership is much more about service and support for self-management.
In our consulting philosophy, we advocate the promotion of these four approaches in your company to help you achieve exceptional performance.
