Mastering Transformation.

Change becomes an opportunity. For effective transformation, it is not only the appropriate business strategy and the right organizational structure that are important. The development of collaboration and leadership skills and the establishment of an appropriate leadership culture are essential factors critical to success. Transformations can only be mastered if effective work is done in parallel in all four areas (4 Areas of Transformation). Lead: Transformation.

  • “My board colleague Daniel Mohaupt and I have once again worked with the professionals from ILD on their professional selection process for filling 2 important key leadership positions. 5 candidates learned a lot about themselves in an assessment centre and showed us a lot about themselves. They felt very comfortable in the process. We ourselves, were very convinced by the methods and profiling of ILD EvaluationHours. We were also able to get a very good picture of each individual applicant, both internal and external, and make a good decision. Thanks to ILD (Frank Strathus, Arndt Kempen, Kirsten Strathus), we can only recommend both your methods for personnel selection and the profilings!”
