Support and development of a branch store organization after restructuring (reduction of the management team in the branch stores) 

This was our approach:  

We started off with “stocktaking” in the branch stores regarding morale and need for support after the reorganization. In the process we interviewed all managers individually, or in a group and deduced the interventions from the results. We supported the branch store management team for one year and conducted 4 „leadership workshops“, in which topics like leadership, communication, process design and dealing with change were discussed. Through working on concrete situations and the interplay, appropriate measures were created and implemented. 

Result

  • Leadership professionality: clear responsibilities and roles, consolidation of the leading role
  • Processes improved, became more transparent and efficient
  • More trust, openness in communication and respect in the management team
  • New structure is being understood and accepted
  • Goals were achieved to a large extent
  • Increased independence in the departments: employees take on more responsibility

Establishing change management competence in the company

This was our approach:

The first step was to develop a collaboration model for executives, project managers and change consultants. Based on this model we created a role concept and a qualification series for internal change consultants. 40 HR managers were familiarized with basics, methods and tools of change management.

Result
The trained HR managers are now available as competent contact persons for company-wide change processes.

Re-establishment of motivation and working capacity within an ongoing re-organization of divisions and processes.

This was our approach:

We started off with a workshop series with managers and social partners, in which the participants defined goals and worked on bottled up conflicts, individually as well as together. In six different team workshops employees and managers were able to discuss their situation, become aware of their decisions and reflect upon their team behavior.

Result
Managers, social partners and employees have reflected on their currently difficult work situation and defined rules for collaboration and team behavior. Self-motivation was increased by self-reliant actions.
