About us

What is the purpose of the work we do, why do we do it, what do we want to improve?

We develop people for organisations and organisations for people

Our focus is to develop the competence to solving problems, whether in learning as an individual or learning as an organisation. Our aim is to ensure joint further development and survival in the relevant context, even under difficult circumstances.

What do we work with in order to achieve this?

Based on the theory that organisations are living systems and not machines, we look at organisations in their functionality and their handling of the revelant surroundings.

Then we look at the different roles and functions that operate within this organisation and the forms of interactions between these roles.

Additionally, there is a consideration of the people who occupy these roles, their uniqueness and all the resources they possess.

But this is not enough help to really stimulate development. As the most important thing is the dependency of these three parts, the form of mutual influence, the effects on one another, with the overall picture in mind. By doing this, we support our customers in achieving what they really want to achieve.

What exactly do we do?

At C/O/N/E/C/T/A we analyse and clarify orders very carefully

To then apply the appropriate combination of interventions and structures. Our customers know what really fits, so they are always the most important partners when developing and deciding on measures.

We do not offer standardised products. We even use the “double assignment” in the qualification measures, in which certain content is developed in several groups. This means that the participating persons always bring their concrete concerns surrounding the topic forward, which we then understand as a second task to find solutions for. We then work with teams or larger departments, everyone involved always has a say in what is appropriate, sensible and a necessary action. Our expertise shines through as it is not turning chaotic, but rather constructive and creative instead.

At C/O/N/E/C/T/A we focus in two directions

We develop the skills of people and role-players to enable them to perform better and more effectively in their surroundings and towards the visions and goals of the organisation.

We develop the ability of organisations, subdivisions and teams to deal with their relevant surroundings – including their employees – in such a way that their likelihood of success and implementation significantly increases.

At C/O/N/E/C/T/A we believe that people fundamentally have good intentions

They want to contribute towards the success. If this does not appear to be the case, if usually comes down to one or more of the following reasons:

  • The people are not in the right place.
  • They work in unclear or unsuitable structures.
  • They lack vision, orientation, goals and context.
  • They cannot make a significant contribution in their current role because they do not possess the skills or opportunities to do so.
  • They cannot learn anything new in your current job.
  • There are old wounds that have not been dealt with (often unfavourable decisions, mostly in combination with poor communication).

In almost all cases, there are problems with and within the leadership of these people. In these areas, we draw on a wealth of experience from a wide range of industries to help you find your own solutions.

At C/O/N/E/C/T/A we enable professional development and active learning.

We support through theoretical and experiential knowledge and create methodologies. For us, successful consulting work also means taking a back seat when the system (the company/person) has found and successfully implemented its own solution.
