Food production

Development of a mission statement containing values as well as guidelines for leadership and behavior for all employees. The goal was corporate alignment in a company, which has grown massively in recent years through additional purchases and new buildings.

This was our approach:  

The prospective values and behavior guidelines were collectively developed in several workshops by the extended management. These results were reflected in multiple loops in the whole underlying management level and in 3 focus groups consisting of work council, HR and shift foremen. Additions, which were made in these loops, were integrated. The rollout into the whole company was achieved with the help of managers in implementation workshops at all sites and through communication towards the team. The leitmotif of the cultural process is: culture is not something abstract or additional, but can provide support, if I use the guiding principles for reflection of my everyday work.

Result A leadership model by which managers as well as employees feel represented, standardization of the understanding and style of leadership, mission statement for all new managers and employees, and guiding principle for staff selection and development, as well as an increased sensitivity for deviations.     

Food production

The goal was to support and develop managers, so that they could realize the leadership guidelines in their everyday work and broaden their range of behaviors; KICK has qualified the managers of the lowest level in manufacturing and supported them in finding their roles.

This was our approach:  

Qualification series, which consisted of 4 modules: leadership and change management, communication and conversation techniques, conflict management and having fair performance reviews. The training series for the managers in production was synchronized with the training series for all other managers. Regarding content and methods we aligned the training with the mission statement and the prospective culture.

Result
Contended managers, who are able to fulfil their role in a much better way, and deal with difficult situations more confidently. Managers, who are able to employ a broader repertory of behavior.
