Management and employee base

At LEAD, we help you develop leadership and employee foundations that support the key strategic challenges your organization faces, create clear expectations in the management chain and contribute to better solutions for citizens.

All management and employee foundations are tailored to align with the strategic goals as well as the (management) core mission of the organization.

Our approach is based on the latest knowledge and best practice leadership theories as well as many years of practical experience from a wide range of public organizations, where we have extensive experience working with the political leadership role, the city council and various committees as well as the citizenship role.

The Leadership Pipeline theory often forms the framework for the work, so that together we ensure that all levels of management have a common language and understanding of what each manager needs to succeed individually and together, and what this requires from each level of management. Paradox and dilemma theory (e.g. Competing Values Framework) is another example of a theoretical foundation that we also often use as a framework for the development of leadership and employee foundations.

However, the work is always based on 3 key focus areas:

  1. To create an intelligent and comprehensive engagement that enables the development of a new leadership foundation with tailored profiles. The profiles should cover all leadership and employee roles. They should define the competencies and behaviors needed to create a well-functioning organization with high performance and high quality in the core task.
  2. To create leadership support structures and processes that are designed and aligned to empower leaders in their leadership roles and behaviors.
  3. To implement development processes with effective learning processes that translate the management and employee foundation into concrete actions in the everyday lives of managers and employees. In this way, we ensure that the management and employee foundation becomes a meaningful and integrated part of everyday task performance.
