For many managers and leaders their north face in business means finding a new successful strategy and implementing it with their employees. It is mostly about people supporting a new corporate objective, which very often involves new forms of leadership and cooperation and almost always requires a new mind-set. Sometimes it even requires a new organizational structure.
Rainer Petek assists decision makers as a sparring partner in change projects, advises them on the optimal set up of change processes and supports leaders to get to common commitments in the key management levels. He facilitates the central workshops of the leadership teams and the large group workshops for corporate employee involvement.
More and more company management teams are facing huge and complex challenges. The quality of the cooperation in these teams has a major impact on their economic success. This is especially true for entrepreneurial challenges that are characterized by a high degree of uncertainty and have to be managed in an environment full of disruptions and surprises.
Since 1998 Rainer Petek has been supporting more than 150 leadership teams and project teams in the successful management of their north faces in business. Even today he still supports selected teams to give them a common focus to develop strategies, to implement them and to live a company culture of collaboration without fuss or quibble.
Yesterday leadership meant setting up goals, delegating them, conducting employee reviews, etc. For success under irreversibly changed conditions in a permanently changing environment leaders need a tool-set, that has not found its way into classic leadership trainings yet.
Today leadership means for most managers in particular: leading into the unknown and developing certainty when dealing with uncertainty.
In his customized seminars Rainer Petek elaborates on the topics of his keynotess and conveys in a lively and sustainable way mission-critical subjects like:
- How to tap the full potential of collaboration for big, common challenges
- How to establish organization-wide self-management and self-organization in line with company goals and strategy
- How to master unexpected events and permanent change
- How to take chances swiftly with a team
Workshops in the mountains
The mountains have always been special places that attracted people for various reasons. One very special reason is: since forever mountains have been a congenial location for people to deal with fundamental questions and big issues. For teams and leaders they offer an ideal and inspiring environment for working together on important topics.
For selected teams Rainer Petek organizes customized strategic time-outs in the mountains. The base camp can be in a tasteful and comfortable hotel, as well as in a remote mountain hut or on a hiking tour for several days.
