Together we will identify both key opportunities and potential barriers for implementing and improving of a responsible/circular approach. We will help you to choose the most suitable ones for your situation.
We will help you to create the necessary internal prerequisites, to secure resources and the commitment of your people to get the change done.
We will provide your teams and managers with the reasons for "buy-in", the energy, appropriate approach, mindset, and skills necessary for successfully conveying the change. We will help you to make sure that the change really happens.
We will help you to find a way to reach the greatest impact on improving your company's sustainable operation with minimum of your efforts and money invested at the same time. All this respecting the required of profitability.
We will map the current condition of your organization and recommend possible steps in two basic areas:
- "Hard" measures to optimize or improve a responsible approach, e.g. in waste management, sustainable packaging, responsible design, using sustainable resources…
- "Soft" measures which will change thinking of your people so they not only understand the change in the chosen direction, but also welcome it and will be able to live it and apply it in their daily work. These measures may include identifying potential obstacles in people's minds and finding ways to overcome them, analyzing the approach of managers and recommending their development to support your intentions, etc.
We have more than 20 years of experience in the second area. In the first area, we work with experts in responsibility and circular economics, especially with CIRA A and INCIEN.
Thanks to cooperation with our partners, we will combine the recommendations in both areas into the compact solution which will help you to find an optimal path to achieve your goals. All this while respecting the 3P circular and responsible approach: People, Profit, Planet.
Circular Scan or Measuring Mindset are among the tools which will do a good job at this stage.
We will help you to ensure your investments do not fly out the chimney due to the natural resistance of people to a change.
A clear intention is rarely enough to start the "flywheel" of change. You'll need people´s determination, their time and capital most of the times.
People prefer to implement the change they really want. They need to see its higher purpose and also a very pragmatic benefit to each of them personally. We have already helped tens of thousands of people to find this meaning and benefits of change. That´s why we are convinced we can help you as well!
In cooperation with our partners, we can also help you to find an optimal source of capital to move your "flywheel".
Our tools at this stage usually include MSM workshops.
Together we will ensure that the changes that have already started and in which you have already invested so much do not stop just before they can live on their own.
The change "flywheel" needs to be energized from the outside by some point. Otherwise it stops.
We will give you recommendation till when the energy needs to be supplied from the outside, what interventions in your internal processes will help you to reduce the loss of change energy, and we will tell you when the change "flywheel" can run on it's own. We will also help you to supply the necessary additional energy.
At this stage, we mostly use tools such as regular meetings with your "change core team", Motivational workshops, the supply of fresh energy in the form of quality trainees, assistance in securing grants or comprehensive development programs such as the Academy of Responsible Leadership.
MORE ABOUT OUR MOST COMMON TOOLS
We will measure your company´s readiness for change and the real pace of the change itself.
"I can control what I can measure" is one of the basic lessons in management. Although we don´t fully agree with this, we still believe the measurement helps quite a lot. In the context of working with corporate culture, measuring helps in many more regards than just stating the fact that we have or have not achieved the intended change.
Measuring values, atmosphere and mindset, howerver, is one of the biggest challenges in psychology and sociology.
Thanks to our cooperation with top experts in the field of psychology and sociology, today we can tell you with up to 95% probability how prepared your organization is for changing the mindset. And we can also tell you where there are obstacles you wouldn´t otherwise know about and recommend how to deal with them. We can also measure the extent to which we have already really managed to change the mindset of your teams.
We will help your managers to see meaning of sustainability and get interested in living that way.
Without Responsible Leadership, no company can make a real change to get the responsible culture.
The good news is that the number of responsible leaders in top managements is increasing. But if there is a lack of full understanding and support from below, from middle management, it´s often a struggle with windmills for them. In addition, standard leadership delelopment programs are not focused onto responsibility and there is often lack of the potential for real change in mindset and behavior.
That´s why we have built the first program of responsible leadership for (not only) middle management in the Czech Republic that will be launched this year.
Do you need a critical mass in your company to think differently? The Responsible Leadership program has a huge potential to help your business shifting the mindset of key people in the right direction effectively and awaking responsible leaders in them. All this while maintaining respect for profitability.
We will tell you how are you really doing with the circular approach and what are the best next steps to get it further off.
We can look at your company through "circular glasses" starting with checking the ways you set up your regular office operations through mapping your production processes, distribution or the purchasing system. We look for opportunities on several levels and always choose to start exactly where the first steps will have the greatest impact for you.
GRANTS AND OTHER RESOURCES
We will help to provide you with the "responsible fuel" and the energy needed to make the change happen.
We are continuously monitoring opportunities that are available for companies and entrepreneurs. We actively incorporate these opportunities into our solutions. For many innovative ideas we are able to find ways to help financing your sustainable changes through grant programs, which are available from national and European funds.
But money is not the only energy we can supply you with. More...
The best strategy and process is hidden in the subconscious of your team. We know how to uncover it.
Determining the right strategy that people will believe and want to implement is not easy. Especially in times like this.
Sometimes even a smaller team is not able to agree on exactly what to do, what is the most important problem and what is the first thing to start with.
That´s why we are happy to use a combined method of Metaplan Strategic Meeting (MSM) which has already helped many companies and non-profit organizations to solve many months of fundamental or less fundamental strategic dilemmas in a single day.
And all of that with one additional key benefit - virtually everyone who attends this type of workshop is leaving with determination to go for the change.
Why? Because it´s not a management solution or ours, it´s one of their own…
We will find the right WHY and charge your people with energy for making changes.
We are good at finding the right WHYs and giving people a real meaning of their work and new challenges. Therefore, e.g. our trainings are successful, although many attempts have failed before. Moreove, we love challenges.
EXAMPLES of WHAT WE DID AND WHAT WE REJECTED
We have decided to help companies to be more sustainable and circular, not just because we believe it´s the right direction for everyone. We have been working on shifting the mindset and corporate cultures for many years so we are sure we have something to build on.
WHAT WE DID
ONBOARDING OF A MAJOR LOCAL NGO WHICH IS HELPING FAMILIES
MINDSET SHIFT OF PRODUCTION FOREMEN IN A GLOBAL MANUFACTURING COMPANY
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE AT AN INTERNATIONAL CONSTRUCTION COMPONENT SUPPLIER
VIP CUSTOMER LOYALTY PROGRAM AT A LEADING GLOBAL PAINTS MANUFACTURER
... AND WHAT WE REJECTED
We want us to enjoy our work and be proud of what we help with. To do this, we must be sure that the necessary conditions are created for the changes that we catalyze.
Therefore we thoroughly examine each potential project before we decide to start working on it. Why did we reject some projects?
