 OUR APPROACH


We know that the quality of leadership is the determinant of effectiveness. In order to improve the achieved results, ensure profitable and stable growth and effectively implement strategies and changes that enable success in a dynamically changing market, it is worth investing in the development of leadership and interpersonal skills and building the so-called „Healthy organizations”.
We work with Polish (including family) and foreign companies. We support them in implementing strategic goals and introducing changes through the implementation of systems and programs aimed at increasing the quality of people management, building effective and committed teams, strengthening values and organizational culture.

  • Our expertise includes issues related to the so-called „soft” aspects as well as „hardleadership and management.

  • We are oriented towards practical implementation. We help our clients define goals and action plans (personal, team and organizational) and implement them.

  • We use the best, proven, global and Polish practices as well as leadership and management solutions, including the unique „5 Levels of Leadership” model by dr. John C. Maxwell.

  • We use programs and first-class training, mentoring and workshop materials liceced by John C. Maxwell, Patrick Lencioni and World Institute for Action Learning.

  • We work with our clients on-site and using modern on-line technologies.

LEADERSHIP IS COMPETENCE,
WHICH CAN BE LEARNT

For many years, we have been asked whether leadership can be learned.

We answer is: Definitely YES!

We use The Five Levels of leadership model and related programs and tools. Their author is Dr. John C. Maxwell, with whom we have been cooperating for many years co-creating The John Maxwell Team – the world’s largest training organization of leaders in the field of leadership, communication and business development. The Five Leadership Model is a clear, clear and practical leadership concept that every leader can learn. This concept has been proven in thousands of companies and organizations in over 120 countries around the world. It assumes that leadership results from the actions taken, and not only from the position taken, and that the measure of the effectiveness of leadership is the influence, not the title. The Five Levels of Leadership model is a clear plan for developing leadership qualities and competences – becoming a natural leader.

 

Apart from the Five levels of leadership model, we also use proven tools, techniques and academic knowledge from leading business schools in the world, which we are graduates and our own over twenty years of leadership and management experience. Working with us allows you to develop a systematic plan to develop your leadership, management and communication skills.

EFFECTIVE LEADER:
LEADERSHIP – the key competence that determines the success or failure of every leader 

You can not delegate responsibility for your development and for the development of your competences. Companies and organizations support the development of their employees to a greater or lesser extent, but it is up to your individual decision to determine how your development will look and what competencies you want to build. In addition, your development and your development also depends on the development of your employees, their practices and methods, and thus the result of the company, organization or department that you direct. This is particularly important in the case of entrepreneurs and people in top positions. No company or organization is able to achieve better results in the long term than those allowed by the top-level competencies of the manager. Your competences. Leadership competence.

PROFESSIONAL COACHING

Professional coaching is a proven and effective method of individual work, the aim of which is to support the client in acquiring the pace of development and improving the professional and personal effects achieved. The indirect goal of coaching is also to teach the client to search for solving emerging challenges and self-motivation. As professionals, we adapt our approach to the client’s needs in order to help him develop solutions and strategies that will be most suitable for him.

MASTERMIND

Participation in the „Mastermind” group is an extremely effective form of gaining new competences and development. It is a systematic work in an intimate group of people, which is a combination of workshop, study, group coaching, brainstorming. Participants study issues for 7 – 11 weeks, exchange experiences, apply acquired knowledge in practice, work on each other, inspire each other and mobilize for development. Classes are conducted in over a dozen different topics on leadership, communication, group work and personal development.

BUSINESS MENTORING

Mentoring is a personal relationship between mentor and mentee (protégé / protégée), which aims to develop a professional mentee. Mentor – as an experienced and competent person – helps mentee learn using the mentor’s experience. Unless in a coaching relationship the coach advises or shares his professional or personal experiences, sharing experiences is the core of mentoring. Mentoring is the process of transferring knowledge, social capital and mentee support in the areas of work, career, professional and personal development.

EFFECTIVE TEAM: 

Solutions and services tailored to your needs 

It is not finance, not strategy, not technology, but teamwork and its culture is a decisive factor in the market advantage because it is the most difficult to copy by the competition. Many companies look for complicated improvements for their organizations, neglecting constant and systematic work that leads to increased commitment and efficiency of teamwork – it is defined by the hidden, dormant potential in any organization. This is evidenced by many years of research on the level of involvement of employees and managers in companies. The average level of full engagement and concentration at work varies only at 30%. The remaining 70% is the untapped potential.

INCREASING GROUP EFFICIENCY

Having a ripped, efficient and well-functioning team is a key issue for any organization that wants to function efficiently. At the same time, the construction of such a team is a difficult matter, due to the need to combine many aspects, such as psychology, organization, management, communication. We have methods that diagnose the existence of so-called „teamwork dysfunctions” as well as tools and solutions that allow these dysfunctions to be reduced or even eliminated, leading to increased team performance and quality improvement in these teams.

Group Workshop

WORKSHOPS AND STRATEGIC SESSIONS, MISSION, VISION AND VALUES IN THE COMPANY

Formulating the company’s mission and vision of its development – that is, a rational image of the future results (additionally rooted in the values ​​that are important for the people who create the organization) leads to an increase in the involvement of its employees. This becomes a criterion when making strategic business decisions, as well as to a large extent that it is attractive to employees, shareholders and investors. The business strategy built taking into account the mission, vision and value is solidly based on the foundations on which the company and its owners as well as the management team operate, thus increasing the effectiveness and success of its implementation. We work with company owners and managers to determine the strategic directions of their organization’s development, and in the case of family businesses, taking into account the personal circumstances and expectations of owners regarding the issue of harmony between personal and professional life.
