SERVICES : AWZ Trainings
“Most companies are over-managed and under-led.”* In today’s age of knowledge work, leaders need to understand that people give their best only voluntarily. Keywords are ‘trust’ and ‘accountability’. Nevertheless, the „proven“ leadership method of the industrial age still is very popular: Control. This method from the previous century, however, no longer works today to hold a top position. But if people have a reason and the know-how to give their best and to collaborate effectively, they will do so. In this sense, we train and coach them in our AWZ Trainings division.
* Zitat von Stephen R. Covey
What is the difference between being a leader and being a superior? How do I create trust? Which are my critical leadership roles?
What is blocking our success as a team? How can I be happy about the success of my colleague? What does it all have to do with me?
What do I owe my audience? What kind of preparation is essential? What can I learn from show business?
What´s the difference to my everyday-job? How do I create value for my company? What’s in it for me?
