I lead a medium sized third generation family enterprise with 110 employees.
By unhappy circumstances we were forced to implement a major generation shift in our top management.
I clearly felt that I did not only want the new people in these positions to be especially capable. I also wanted them to be ethically responsible.
And I wanted to fill these positions fast, because I saw this change as chance for our company to be even more innovative and progressive. I also wanted to open our traditionally rather male structure with women in management.
And I wanted the complete management to focus on the well-being and the success of people around us: our customers and our employees, but also our suppliers and our community as a whole.
These are the Diamond Cutter tools I used:
I took only me half a year to achieve my purpose, and it was incredibly easy. I didn’t even have to look for my new team!
Today, a lean & process lady manager and an operations manager support me in the Board, highly motivated and with really good first results. Together as a team we have started several new karmic projects.
I am so grateful for all this. And, of course, I continue planting new seeds for success!
