Building trust and a mutual understanding of goals is the formula for success and high performance.

Strong teams achieve more than the sum of their individual parts. Especially on the C-level, it is challenging to turn strong individual fighters into a cohesive, trusting high-performance collective that focuses on what matters most: shared goals. Executive Team Development by Manres helps develop and roll out a shared vision and organizational purpose. It offers sustainable team building for high-performance leaders, also helping to overcome crises and conflicts.

Vision & Purpose

If you want to get results, you must provide a purpose. Behind every successful company, you will almost always find a unifying, purpose-driven culture of high-performance. This serves as a guiding star for everyone involved. If you want your employees to be fully engaged on the job, they must know which direction the company is heading, what purpose it serves and why this is worthwhile. We guide you and your management team in developing their vision and putting it into practice inside your organization.

As French philosopher Michel de Montaigne so succinctly put it, “No wind favors he who has no destined port.” Every day, executive board meetings prove in very real terms just how accurate this maritime analogy is. Whether it is a lack of agreement or a failure to coordinate and set goals, company leaders and executive boards often realize only a fraction of their company’s potential and opportunities for development.

Do you have a clearly formulated, viable vision that will serve as a guide to everyone within your organization or department for the next three to six years? Does this offer meaning and a clear direction for everyone within the organization? Do you and your colleagues agree on how you want to achieve this?

With our in-depth knowledge of psychology and our specialized expertise, we guide you through the development and implementation of your organization's vision and purpose. Sharpen your executive team's focused on its shared goal. And cultivate a strategic and cultural mindset that drives your entire organization forward.

Today more than ever, company leaders and executives are under enormous pressure to deliver results. To achieve optimal performance, it is indispensable to have a shared goal and, above all, proactive, trusting and supportive teamwork throughout your management team.

The reality is often very different. In many companies, the top management boards are stuck in a silo mentality. The teamwork between members of the board may not be fully dysfunctional, but there is plenty of room to improve efficiency. We help to (re-)optimize your teamwork so that you significantly boost the performance of your executive team.

We start our High-Performance Team Development program by systematically surveying your board members in advance, along with a selection of their direct subordinates. We then perform personality assessments and observe the dynamics during your board meetings as part of a comprehensive team analysis.

After that, we conduct three to five multi-day workshops to discuss our findings and work in depth and intensively as a group on the topics we have identified. To sustainably integrate the necessary changes in mentality and behavior into each board member’s everyday work, we guide you through these interactions during one-on-one coaching sessions.

Conflict Intervention & Crisis Management

Organizational change, technological advances, challenges and conflicts can all serve as an excellent catalyst for development and progress. At the same time, they pose the risk of triggering uncertainties and anxiety, along with inaction and resistance. We support you and your employees in overcoming conflicts and crises, with a range of stabilizing interventions that provide steady footing and orientation.

The increasingly complex, difficult conditions within the corporate world are often summarized with the acronym VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity). No matter how you describe or define this sweeping paradigm shift in technology, business and demographics, the impact on people within the system is enormous—especially for those who are strongly driven by the basic human need for security, stability and clarity. If a company runs into difficulties or faces an uncertain future, or if many things are called into question that previously seemed certain, it can have a stifling effect on people, or possibly even put them into fighting mode.

You can rely on Manres to support and stabilize your leaders and their team members during tough times, whether it is a personal crisis or a situation affecting the entire team. We help you take the right actions to steady your company’s course, even in times of sweeping organizational change. We also offer systematic guidance for teams and individuals in conflict situations.

Conflicts are important catalysts for development. The friction they release can lead to significant progress. Still, it is often difficult for those involved to embrace the positive aspects of dissonance and shape the problem-solving process from within. We help create a space and a shared vocabulary to get the real issues out into the open, to identify causes and carve out a path forward for everyone. In the best-case scenario, this empowers teams to lead themselves forward and to become/remain functional, based on the strength of their own inner stability.
