The Custom Team are working intensely on proposals as to how companies can be effectively supported in tackling the crisis. With conviction, leaders can take control of this crisis and here is how. Introducing our offensive based approach ‘BRIDGE – TRANSLATE – BROADEN & BUILD’.
‘BRIDGE’ is the means by which we postpone an existing residential learning journey, while offering succinct virtual touchpoints.
‘TRANSLATE’ describes how existing training modules are transformed into a full distance format. In a basic form, a full day of training is converted into smaller (two hours max) digital exposures. Flexibly scheduled and offered in a highly engaging variety of formats, these interventions allow for strong interaction. Concurrently, our training formats address the challenges of a home office setting (issues with maintaining concentration, slower turnaround times, providing for childcare and so forth).
‘BROADEN & BUILD’ robustly prepares for longer term impact, accelerating your organisation beyond the crisis. As a decision-maker, you are now facing completely different issues. Being a thought leader, Custom Programs have identified the critical areas propelling highly performing organizations:
Strength First & Conflict Resolution in the Private Field
Human contact in decentralised times, physical and mental training can be enhanced in various ways, for example with the help of joint indoor sports activities, apps for virtual lunch partners, virtual after-work aperitifs, etc. Apart from professional challenges, the family situation is often tense – we provide trained professionals as confidential contact persons.
Urgent Problem Solving & Company Conflict Resolution
“How do we keep the business going?” is probably the dominant managerial question right now. This is where our institutes and practitioners from the business world can find sparring partners for their individual questions in challenges such as supply Chain, Operations, Logistics, Financials, etc. The Custom Programs Team is happy to serve as a single point of contact.
Keeping Momentum & Engaging People
If many companies wanted to increase their innovative ability before the crisis, they can now do so – on the job: With organizational campaigns and challenges in the context of current business challenges, they can increase motivation so that employees are more willing to find solutions and show creativity despite less control.
Preparing the Future
Preparing the future gives companies the opportunity to prepare for the time after the crisis and to learn and apply new things. For example, Ecosystem-Management Online Retreat for decision-makers and Digital Readiness Online Initiative for Senior Business Leaders are forward-looking journeys for managers who strive to be stronger after the crisis.
The team of custom programs at the University of St.Gallen supports you in crisis management and helps your company to become a crisis winner.
