Together, they blend ideas, cases, models and practical examples into a framework that enables you to master the art of making positive change happen.
The first time Jonas and Mark worked with a group of executives, more than 200 projects resulted, over 250 million euros were saved and made as managers began to take responsibility for their own challenges. Now, they have teamed up to provide their own potent blueprint for re–energizing your organization.
Re–energizing The Corporation is built on the groundbreaking 3e leadership model which makes sense of the three Es of Envisioning, Engaging and Executing. By understanding and following the model, you will be able to create compelling pictures of the future of your organization; build a following of individuals committed to getting the vision into reality; and maximize team performance to deliver on your dream.
Change is a fact of life. It s inescapable. The choice is yours: reduce or produce change. In truth, there s only one choice.
