Talent- and Organisational Development

Dealing with Uncertainty and Ambiguity


For Industry


Organizations seeking to thrive in today's turbulent times cannot change through technical approaches. They need a new kind of leadership.


For Academia


Institutions and organizations have become more complex and fast changing. The leaders are required to know themselves as well as their behaviors to reflect the constant changing environment.


For Consulting


Consulting places an emphasis on diagnosing the problem and finding a cure. In today's world of complex organizations the traditional linear approach is becoming less and less vaible.


Coaching


Self-reflection


For those who appreciate the importance of reflection, but find it difficult to execute, we offer individual and team coaching to develop self-reflection. The value of reflection is based on the permise that the better one understands one's own behavior, motivations and beliefs, in the context of the current situation, the better one can choose a response that produces the desired outcome.



These are our unique selling propositions (USPs):

  1. We have extensive knowledge and experience in observing and reflecting on behavior (registered psychologist).
  2. We have worked in industry for many years and understand the dynamics within the industry.
  3. We show passion for people and endeavor to support them in achieving their own successes.

The seminars are led by highly qualified facilitators, and our interactive and engaging experimental learning includes:

  • Getting to know yourself as well as your boundaries in dealing with uncertainty and ambiguity
  • Experiencing your boundaries and how to use self-awareness in your personal and professional life
  • Experiencing reflective consultation and how to practice it
  • Understanding power and how to use it
