COD Overview

PARADIGM SHIFT – ALL-NEW APPROACH TO LEADERSHIP

If you want results, stop asking for them

Conventional leadership training is often focused on “self-inquiry,” analysis of different personalities and how they match, thinking models such as “seven habits,” conversational behavior, setting targets, inspired communication, traps to avoid when implementing change, positive and negative feedback – the list goes on. Unfortunately, the above offers leaders very little support in their daily work.

Conventional training and individual maturity still influence our perception of leadership. Despite ever increasing numbers of KPIs – and individualized programs – the leap forward has yet to be made. We are still struggling with the same problems as twenty years ago – sub optimization, silo thinking and collaborative challenges.

Core Of Development (COD) supports breaking the pattern by avoiding the use of command and control or target setting to get results. We are specialists in accelerating organizational development. Our training aims at achieving a fresh, immersive leadership that lays the foundation for a new culture. We have been involved in hundreds of development processes in more than 50 countries, observing first-hand how conventional methods fail to provide leaders with the support they so desperately need.

COD is a unique and practical toolbox designed to help leaders extract the most out of their teams. Utilizing these tools will lead to a positive mindset in the organization and sustainable momentum going forward.

COD’s methods are modern – and distinctive. Many of our business contacts have requested an introduction to gain an understanding of the differences. All the leaders we have come into contact with are looking for alternatives to the prevailing ’wisdom,’ but have so far been fumbling in the dark. The best way to assess if COD is an option for you is simply to enroll in one of our open COD trainings.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

THE COD CONCEPT PREPARES MANAGERS FOR LEADERSHIP

It’s all about learning how to utilize a team’s capacity to address important, unresolved questions – and to involve everyone in finding workable solutions. The method includes meetings, coaching and a robust infrastructure to support the decisions and plans made along the way.

Training takes place in workshops, is entirely interactive and closely connected to the company’s and participants’ specific challenges and issues. Besides imparting methods, Leadership Development also supports actively replacing existing and outworn methodologies. What’s more, a proactive and all-encompassing strategy planning and execution process will form a part of the program.

It is adapted to each part of an organization and applies to management as a whole, sales teams, key account management teams, team leaders, supervisors, project managers and co-workers.

The basic Leadership Development support is 2+2 days.

TEAM ONE

SUPPORT TO ENSURE EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT TEAMS

Our support for working in a management team. The approach is based on the COD concept and always co-designed with the client’s top management. The support is focused on enabling COD-trained leaders to utilize the COD concept and engage the entire organization in working with strategy. This includes setting the team’s roadmap, aligning calendars, securing individual development coaching and establishing a team identity. And so on.
The Team One support is minimum 2 days.

STRATEGY EXECUTION SUPPORT

THE STRATEGY IS MEANT TO BE EXECUTED BY ALL TEAMS AND INDIVIDUALS

We support teams to formulate their strategy in unison. This is a meticulous process that covers background, direction and current status. The resulting strategic narrative is used as input for all teams in the organization to identify and close their own gaps. Both being and doing are addressed. The strategy execution is backed by hands-on support. 1-2 days.

ADAPTATION AND BOOSTER TO COMPANY PROGRAMS

COD SUPPORTS ACCELERATION OF ALREADY EXISTING INITIATIVES

Our expertise covers upgrading and accelerating initiatives such as 4Q, Lean, TQM, WCM, OD and continuous improvement programs.

SURVEY SUPPORT

COD SUPPORTS TO MONITOR PROGRESS

We have years of experience of customizing surveys that visualize strategy execution progress, leadership development and culture change. Our services include design, execution and evaluation of surveys comprising thousands of participants. The outcome of surveys provide proof of concept for both, strategy and leadership.
