Machines take no responsibility

The digital transformation is unavoidable. New leadership thinking is needed as never before. Employees cannot be programmed like machines. They should be prepared and inspired for new ways.

Abstract

ASPECTS OF A PERFORMANCE CULTURE

INTERPLAY OF PERFORMANCE AND CULTURE

SECTOR-SPECIFIC DIFFERENCES IN PERFORMANCE CULTURE

PERFORMANCE CULTURE AND COMPANY SIZE

Managers as role models for change

Every manager regularly accompanies change processes. Taking the employees along with them is a central task. A critical look at this challenge, which every manager encounters several times in his career.

Learning in a network and developing new things

Our competence development program for Bertelsmann relies on innovative approaches (Collaborative Communities, Learning Journey and Organizational Design) and contributes directly to the corporate strategy.

“We must bring leadership thinking into the future.”

Fluid Organization promotes growth and satisfaction.

WHY IS IT WORTH INVESTING IN MODERN LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT?

01

Poor employee management causes immense costs

In addition to performance killers such as demotivation, conflicts and service by the book, which often have a rather hidden effect, illness costs, the departure of valuable employees, low innovative strength as well as quality losses are very obvious.

02

Managers are the central strategy implementers

They steer and keep the company on course. If you fail to do this, the company threatens to lurch in the sea like a ship without a rudder and constantly change direction.

03

The leadership role has become much more demanding in recent years

Where it used to be crucial to have a high level of technical competence, the change to a knowledge society is placing far higher demands, e.g. on role clarity, communication, empathy but also strategic thinking and action.

04

Managers are responsible for supporting and shaping the corporate culture

“Performance from culture” means a nurturing environment in which employees can realize their potential in the service of the company and are prepared to give their personal best. Digital change and the increase in distance leadership make this task increasingly challenging. A corporate culture that promotes performance and is supported by the managers represents a clear competitive advantage that, unlike some business models, can hardly be copied.

05

Modern management development contributes directly to strategy implementation

It ensures a high degree of goal orientation through learning field analyses and learning target agreements. It is demanding, individually adapted to the participant and makes the achievement of learning goals measurable and thus transparent. Above all, because it is interlinked with live projects, it is embedded in the larger context of cultural and organizational development and can no longer be considered an isolated individual measure.
