Poor leadership kills transformation

New technologies, new business models, new ways of working: Today, companies are forced to adapt to permanent transformation faster than ever before. If they fail to do so, they will lose touch and be outpaced. Successful transformation starts with their leaders. For they are the ones who implement these transformations in their teams. 

This requires a whole new set of knowledge, skills and habits from your executives. And this is where companies often fail. The idea of giving up old habits and developing new routines creates a lack of understanding and resistance among many leaders.

What our clients say

Stephan and his team did a fantastic job of training our board members to give TED-style talks. The feedback we received after delivering our TED style talks at our annual conference was fantastic. Now, our organization is eager for more!


Liam Condon
former CEO Bayer CropScience AG
Boma's leadership workshops convinced even the most skeptical members of our leadership team. Superb coaches, inspiring input, and valuable tools that we can apply directly in our organization.


Martin Henn
Geschäftsführer, Henn GmbH
Three years ago, we would have had a hard time justifying speaker coaching for our entire leadership team. Today, executives are approaching us themselves because they see the importance of authentic communication to their leadership role.

We guide executives through transformation

We know how frustrating it is when much-needed transformation fails to work in a company. Why are so few executives able to lead their teams confidently through transformation? We believe, because it’s a mammoth task that no leader can accomplish alone. 

It takes a whole new level of knowledge about technology and trends. It requires different skills than just a few years ago. And it needs a different leadership mindset that is not taught in today’s business schools. 

We have made it our mission to support executives in this task. That’s why we designed a new leadership curriculum. In hands-on formats, they learn all about the latest business trends and disruptions. They recognize where they personally need to catch up and are accompanied by our experienced coaches on the path to transformation. 

After all, transformation always starts with people. People shape cultures. And cultures change companies.

Initiating change in companies is hard.

You need leaders who know how to move their teams to abandon well-rehearsed routines and trustingly follow them into the unknown.“

Companies that do not change will not survive.

New technologies, digital business models, new ways of working: Companies today are facing more transformation than ever before. If they fail to adapt to the changing conditions, they will fail and disappear. 

 

Executives need different qualifications 

German companies select their executives primarily based on expertise and experience. But they need other qualifications to change your company: 

 

They must be strong communicators to convey the need for transformation to their teams. They need to know about the latest technologies and trends. They need to be bold and lead their teams through transformation with confidence. 

 

Leading people through pressure and directives no longer works. It takes a different leadership mindset than is taught in current management education. 

 

Some executives silently boycott change

Your leadership culture was the foundation for successful growth in the past years. Now, you want your managers to work, communicate and lead in a different way. That’s nothing that goes down lightly with some of your executives. The idea of breaking their own habits and developing new routines causes reluctance and resistance among many executives. 

 

We guide executives through change

We made it our mission to support executives in these challenges. That‘ s why we created a new leadership curriculum. In hands-on learning experiences, they get to know everything about the latest business trends and disruptions. They recognize where they personally need to level up and are mentored by experienced coaches on the path to transformation. 

 

Future-proof company

No matter how fast your company needs to change in the future. Your leadership team will have the necessary professional, personal and leadership skills to guide their teams confidently through these transformations. 

 

Attractive talent culture

You have a culture that attracts and retains high performers and young talent. A culture where there is room for new ideas, where employees can experiment without fear of making mistakes. A culture where mistakes are allowed as part of continuous improvement. A culture where people communicate with each other as equals and regularly give and receive constructive feedback.

 

Inspiring leaders

Your executives have worked hard to be ready for the challenges their future leadership roles pose. They have overcome unhelpful behaviors and developed new leadership competencies. They lead their teams as role models and coaches, inspire and motivate them instead of giving orders, and talk personally and authentically with their teams about necessary transformations. In doing so, they have earned the trust of their teams, who are now ready to follow them through the upcoming transformations.
