>Transformational Leadership

“Change is doing things differently, a shift in behavior. Transformation is a new way of being, a shift in values”   [Richard Barrett]

To illustrate the dimension when we talk about transformation, change is an alteration at the same level of consciousness (we move chairs back and forth on the same floor) and transformation is an update of my operating system, a new value system, and a new view of the world (we are moving to a higher floor).

Transformational Leadership Consulting and Coaching

Inspired by the most recognized Thinkers, Authors and Practitioners of our days like Ken Wilber, Otto Scharmer, Rainer Weber and many others, Transformation is an inner deep dive and lasting exercise we can do as human beings in our contemporary situation. According to these leaders, developing consciousness and transforming your SELF is the most effective way to face the challenges of our time. The preferred language of this kind of coaching is German.

 

>Post Merger Integration

A Seven Day Deep Dive Experience – Integrating perspectives of company A, company B, profit, people, planet and purpose

M&A is a mug’s game: Typically 70 – 90 % of acquisitions are abysmal failures” [Harvard Business Review]

The global business of corporate mergers and acquisitions is booming like never before. According to data from Bain & Company, strategic and publicized M&A deals in 2018 totaling US$ 3.4 trillion around the globe. Prominent examples include the takeover of the agriculture company Monsanto by the chemical company Bayer or the merger of the industrial gas manufacturer Linde with the US competitor Praxar.

Current Situation

Companies typically engage in M&A deals to increase their market share, improve their business model and enhance their technological skills – and the future of the companies involved in such deals can vary. M&A deals can result in two companies consolidating to form an entirely new company; in the dissolution of one company after it is bought by another; or in a company simply operating under the umbrella of a new parent company – depending on the specifics. Global M&A activity continue to climb – yet most M&A deals continue to fail. Study after Study put the failure rate at over 70%, including Harvard Business School, Bain, Great Prairie Group, and many others.

Why Deals Fail

So, why do M&A deals fail? Quite simple, mergers and acquisitions fail to deliver due to poor planning or poor execution or both. Poor Planning + Poor Execution = Poor M&A Results.

One of the biggest mistakes companies make during PMI (Post Merger Integration) is ignoring the issue of organizational culture – or addressing it only superficially. Culture impacts everything in business operations. It influences what members of the organization value, how they set priorities and make decisions, what type of individuals are successful, and how people behave in the face of challenge or crisis.
