MANAGEMENT OFFSITE MEETINGS

Offsite meetings are one part of an extended conversation – about the customer,  the strategy, the goals, the structure you need, the culture you want to establish, the level of involvement of people  – in and outside of the team-, the progress you are making. Offsite meetings are an opportunity to bring people together to make decisions so you can go back to the office afterwards and start taking action. Offsite meetings are also an opportunity to break the pattern of thought, behaviour and emotions that (often unconsciously) drive much of the teams performance / or failure.

However, if participants do not understand (or agree on) what outcomes they’re driving toward, or don’t feel their voice is being heard, your offsite will derail before the first coffee break. Attendees walk in the door with different priorities. They often represent different roles in the business, and may even report to different managers – in which case, their performance may be judged by different measures. At the very least, they’ll have different backgrounds, personality types, and communication styles. In an offsite need we need to be able to integrate all of these differences in order to achieve great results.Diversity in the team can be your greatest asset, however if not handled well, it can also be your greatest nightmare.  

Katja Kruckeberg will help you to reflect on the desired outcomes of your management offsite meetings, she will assist you to decide on the right strategies how to get to this desired outcome, she will design the flow of the offsite meeting with you and can facilitate the event as a five star moderator of global business meetings.

With the offsite meetings you can create momentum. Your momentum is power. However, Katja believes if offsite meetings only lead to new insights, you have wasted your time; if the team´s learning leads to new insights that inspire the right  cognitive, emotional and behavioural changes and strong actions, then you have harnessed the power that can change the direction of your team´s performance.

CONSULTING FOR GLOBAL ORGANIZATIONS

Having worked with hundreds of organisations and thousands of leaders across the globe, Katja´s experience shows sometimes investing in training and coaching alone is not enough to generate the leadership performance you need in order to reach your goals. Leadership consulting is a holistic way of looking at the leadership capacity in your organisation to maximise its alignment with your business goals and turn it into your ultimate advantage.

Katja´s comprehensive leadership consulting solutions are specifically designed to optimise the interaction between your systems, structures and people. Her consulting model looks at various activities in the organisation through one single lens: improving your leadership effectiveness. Katja´s approach includes 5 steps:

The first step includes working with your senior executives to understand the strategic goals of your business. Here we examine what necessary leadership requirements are, in order to execute this strategy. In the second step the outcomes of this first steps will be deepened and validated. This is done by working in close partnership with your HR team to develop a comprehensive analysis of your business’s current leadership capability. Next, your leaders will be enaged to review the outcomes of the previous stage. This helps to establish a clear picture of the leadership culture, processes and behaviours your organisation will need to put in place in the short, medium and long term. We then share this vision with your leaders, ensuring the rationale is clear and that we have their commitment to deliver these benefits to your business, clients, people and the leaders themselves.In the next phase, a set of solutions will be designed to bring your processes and leaders in line with each other and take you closer to your organisational goals. In the final stage, the impact of the consulting process will be evaluated and actions defined to ensure you can maximise your organisation’s leadership capability over time.
