Only those who are able to recognize their talents and focus and grow them can take their skills to a level of excellence. Meanwhile, attempts to counteract weaknesses merely tend to lead to mediocrity. That is why we recommend and promote inter-employee exchanges, as well as exchanges with management, about strengths:

We use the Clifton StrengthsFinder® to identify each individual’s strengths. By sharing their results with their superiors, employees can be more effectively assigned tasks, projects and teams where they can use their talents.

Employees also have the option to benefit from internal coaching with one of our certified strengths coaches. Internal coaching focuses on better understanding your talents and talent profile in order to personally grow your talents.

In addition, we also perform team matches that promote collaboration. A team match brings awareness to who has which needs, mindsets and approaches and how these different aspects can be combined to complement one another.

In times of rapid change, it is more important than ever to continuously increase the depth of your existing competences and acquire new knowledge.

Our competence matrix allows our employees to develop the hard skills they need for their respective job profile. Through self-assessment you begin by identifying your current state. The self-assessment is then compared to the preferred skill set of the target role and you are given suggestions on the best training courses and ways to expand your current know-how. This allows employees to take a step-by-step approach to reaching their target role.

The “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Dr. Stephen Covey assumes that it is not the success techniques we learn that lead to greater personal and interpersonal effectiveness, but character, competence and trust. The book encourages us to work on our own behavior.

We invite our employees to examine Covey’s “7 Ways” as well and to examine how they themselves act and interact. This can also be done with someone you trust (e.g., colleague, coach). The result can be used as the basis for trying new or changing existing methods and modifying your own behavior in order to achieve greater effectiveness and thus greater success.
