CASE STUDY II
The Treehouse TrainingⓇ as a methodology for implementing the corporate leadership strategy.
All top managers of a global logistics company completed the Treehouse TrainingⓇ. In this way, the Management Board ensured that all top leaders received a uniform mindset on the subject of self-leadership and people management. This empowerment had a maximum lasting effect on interaction, leadership behavior and thus on how people are treated in the company. What unites everyone now is a common focus on the big picture.
Original statement of the CEO: “It is totally important that we as top management are a role model for what we demand from our people. The know-how from the Treehouse trainingⓇ, supports my leadership role as CEO enormously!”
CASE STUDY III
Cultural change to avoid failure in structural change.
The massive structural change of a global logistics company brought a lot of turmoil into the company. One could also say “no stone was left unturned”. Almost the entire top management was replaced. This led to great uncertainty and skepticism among the employees. Identification was lost. There was a threat of many good people leaving and thus a loss of know-how and performance. As one of the most important strategy components, the board of directors decided on a comprehensive culture project.
Original statement of the CEO: “We must not lose our people. Logistics is a people business. People make the difference here. One of the biggest challenges is to get good employees, empower them and keep them. I want our employees to identify with the company again – and we as managers have to make sure that happens!
This Culture project is a holistic approach that will best position our company for the future. It starts with strengthening our roots and extends to defining our North Star – our direction for the next generations. In the process, our values-based leadership principles act like a navigation system!”
