How does my team measures up to my company's ambitions?
THE SUPPORT OF A STEERING COMMITTEE MEETS 4 NEEDS:
Supporting the management team;
Making the steering committee effective;
Developing the skills of the management committee;
Managing a crisis in the management committee.
For each need, there is a corresponding supporting method and specific tools.
STRENGTHEN THE MANAGEMENT TEAM
A management team is first and foremost a team. Therefore, it must be united.
We implement all the techniques useful for the team cohesion: seminars (three times a year ideally), joint work (e.g. rotating coaching between team members on a cross-cutting subject) or the development of mutual knowledge.
MAKE THE STEERING COMMITTEE EFFECTIVE
A Management Committee is a steering body for the implementation of a strategy. It is therefore an organization and a process in itself.
We regularly audit the quality of Management Committees and improve them thanks to our experience in supporting more than 300 Management Committees every year.
MANAGING A CRISIS IN THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
The crisis can take different forms: a conflict between managers or a conflict between the manager and his/her managers.
We encourage the manager and directors to express themselves as freely as possible. We often play a mediating role in resolving the conflict and restarting on a sound footing.
DEVELOP THE SKILLS OF THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
The Management Board must make progress in areas that cut across the divisions: strategy, time management, management practices, organization, innovation, customer experience, etc.
On average, we participate on a quarterly basis in the management committees of the executives we support in order to create the conditions for collective progress and to bring in substance and experience.
In addition, we coach each member of the executive committee on an ad hoc basis. This of course complements the management work of the CEO himself.
