Leadership in the VUCA environment - Dealing with change as a permanent challenge 

Is your everyday life marked by changes and many projects? Have you experienced that many Change Projects were not successfully implemented?

Studies have shown that the "human factor" is one of the main causes for the failure of Change Projects. The ability to change in times of digitalization is for companies more important than ever!


Veränderungen in der VUCA Welt


No change without emotions - Designing change and not just managing it

Change Processes change familiar habits. This is why they are always linked to people's emotions. Change Projects often fail because the emotional reactions of the affected people regarding that change can be very different and of varying intensity. People are often not involved. What can you do?

Enable more transparency and feedback, and more communication instead of just "one-sided" information: all in a pragmatic "language" that everyone can understand. A constructive approach to emerging emotions and resistance is one of the elementary success factors in the Change Process.


Four Rooms of Change® - Going through four rooms to reach success 

If a change comes into people's lives they leave the room of Contentment and enter the room of Denial. "This doesn't concern me" is a typical reaction to the first step on the path of change. The next room stands for Confusion. Here the so-called "zeropoint" is reached. With it comes the willingness to leave everything behind and accept the change.

The consequence: the space of Inspiration opens up, and from now on change can be shaped together in a team.
