What is our USP? What sets us apart from our competitors?
- We focus on individualized support, which is why we deliberately avoid workshops.
- Reputational risk is one of the most valuable possessions that has to be minimized. Due to our experience on the subject of socially acceptable job cuts at the world’s largest asset manager in Switzerland (before and after the financial crisis), we have a strong sense of the reputational risk for companies, teams, and individuals.
- We are the first “Newplacer” in Switzerland with a focus on “agile leadership”, who are able to measure the competencies of agile leadership and to develop and internalize them with leadership teams. Which is why this instrument is also part of all of our packages.
- Most executive coaches have broad leadership experience outside of the human resources business.
