CORE OF THE CORE

The core is that leadership is the backbone of all operational and development oriented work. Leadership built on dictating orders or challenging with higher objectives offers an after due-date solution. People need to understand the gaps and the ideas to close them and they need to be involved to find the solutions impacting their own business environment. A new leadership has to secure a practical, structured and inclusive way of working, where predefined solutions are replaced by important questions to be answered.

Together with a strategy and well thought out process to implement it, it is obvious that the culture will be shaped according to the pedagogy the leadership and strategy process stand for.

A strategy is, by definition, proactive and normally aim to stimulate the co-workers to solve their future responsibilities in a new way. The better acceptance and solution the co-worker can get, the faster the desired change. The most powerful way the guarantee that is involving the co-workers in the actual decision-making process, instead being pushed to execute what the management struggle to explain.

The COD concept is an easy-to-use and efficient leadership mind-set built on three structured tools or processes; one for meetings, one for individual conversations, and one for an infrastructure securing decisions to be implemented. This need leadership training, where together with a strategy analysis, these work processes are trained in the real business case.
