Leadership is one of the central challenges for every manager – there is no “one fits all” training for this. While significant means are often dedicated to standardised personnel development programmes or assessments, many managers frequently feel left to their own devices with their responsibilities.
Executive Effectiveness supports professionals with leadership responsibilities, companies and employees in a rather special way:
- Tailored evaluation of skills – based on the Amrop Competency Model
- Linking the relevant “life cycles” of organisation & people – focusing on seven growth phases
- Personalised specialist feedback for managers – based on the Leadership Report
- Focusing on the feasibility of recommended measures – using individual development plans
- Know-how transfer to CEO, top-management & human resources – via joint implementation support
Regardless of the reason for change, Executive Effectiveness begins with listening, then analysing the individual needs of the company. Mutual understanding is the basis for joint success.
Management Team Audit:
Are you sure you know your own executives? Do you even have the right executives? What does your management team need specifically to be successful? Which skills will actually be needed in your industry in the future? Are you driving the development of your company or the market?
A management team audit is an efficient tool for analysing the skills and potential of executives within your company environment. The goal is to focus management resources on the company’s strategy and on current business issues. A management team audit comprises a systematic analysis and assessment of a company’s management structure and management quality.
A management team audit carried out by professionals with a feedback loop deepens the management’s ties to the company and helps to make planning with regard to future executives more reliable.
Key People Review:
If you are taking on a CEO or management position – especially as an outsider – you may well ask yourself the following questions. Who supports my strategy? What skills do I see? Whom can I rely on? Whose loyalty to the team must be won immediately? Who is preventing the company from developing?
A key people review is a tool for the “first 100 days” managing a company. It has been specially designed to pave the way for fast and direct decisions during management changes, pre- and post-merger phases, restructuring or takeovers. It covers the top decision-makers within the company, draws up a skills’ analysis of key personnel and provides a basis for developing short-term personnel change processes.
When recruiting key personnel, considerable time and resources are often invested in finding the suitable candidate. However, in the first few months after joining the company, candidates frequently find they have been left to their own devices and struggle to familiarise themselves with a complex organisation. How can you ensure that newly recruited executives are successfully integrated and quickly start to perform?
Onboarding is the term used to describe the appointment and integration, i.e. taking onboard, of new employees and the range of measures put in place to facilitate this integration. It is the first impression of a company and its culture that determines the motivation, commitment and self-initiative that a new employee will show, and these factors have a significant impact on their productivity.
The trust we build up with candidates during the recruitment process means we are ideally placed, in conjunction with HR, to assist with their optimal integration into the company. Support measures for onboarding are more than just a methodical approach, they require concepts that have been customised to the individual company. We also compile a report documenting the results of this process so that integration issues can be handled purposefully in the future.
