If managers use their intuition, they can find a new, different scope of action for consciously influencing behaviour and development. Our intuition – the interaction between experience, knowledge, emotion and unconscious beliefs – guides all of our decision-making processes.

Intuition

The guiding principle for this is communicating with and leading our own person and it is therefore an important area of learning for everyone. Being the person that we truly are allows us to appear authentic, transparent and therefore effective. Consistency rather than perfection leads to authentic behaviour. This is facilitated through creating harmony between our self-image – how we perceive ourselves – and our public image – how others perceive us. Reconciling our self-image and our public image through the use of feedback is the biggest area of development for people who operate in organisations.

People have an acute sense for authenticity. Inauthentic or superficial conduct causes confusion. Being authentic, on the other hand, is sure to convince and impress the listener. When we behave authentically, we come across as real people, we create trust and we build relationships. In doing so, we lay the foundations for effective management and gain charisma, allowing us to act formatively in the moment as a manager or key actor. NoTool stands for developing authenticity!

Authenticity

The only thing is that authenticity also brings out the darker sides of our personality in their full and true form. The uncertainties and anxieties hidden behind the façade we put on come to the light. Revealing all the challenging situations in the everyday life of management positions, the irritation, impatience and embarrassment, can unsettle people and cause a drop in expertise.
Developing our personality  – facing our fears and weaknesses, drawing strength from our true abilities – is the key component for successful management development. Only then can the various tools and techniques we learn be translated convincingly into effective management.

Confidentiality and discretion are key when cooperating with our clients. Some of these clients have expressly consented to their names being mentioned. In a face-to-face discussion , we can also say what we have done and where, how and when we did it.

In addition to medium-sized enterprises, our clients also include large-scale companies and international corporations from the industry and service sectors in German-speaking countries and in places where we advise and offer support in English.

Our internationally active clients particularly appreciate our expertise in personal development, which really brings to bear the management development approaches that have been tried and tested in the corporate world.

Our services, facilitating and supporting processes of change, are in equally high demand from medium-sized clients, as well as from international clients in the corporate world.

Just as in the art of Aikido, the aim is to redirect and use the energy and resistance we face in the process of change. It’s about leading and following, a dance that paves the way for cooperation to succeed. After all, mobility and flexibility protect our personal resources and increase our resilience. We become more receptive to new concepts and gain a balanced view of the decisions ahead. In order to allow the transformation to succeed, NoTool bridges the gap between quality and acceptance.

We reinforce the following skills:

  • Openness to communicate
  • Courage
  • Mobility
  • Perseverance
  • Robustness
  • Authenticity
  • Composure
  • Resolve
  • Openness

Dance with change

C a l m  Leadership

 

C for connected

Building strong, trustful and binding relationships

Relationship, loyalty, commitment. If I can create real relationships as a manager and I am not afraid of contact and discussions, then I am more connected to myself, inspire confidence and bring about commitment in others. That way, I can also address unpleasant issues, move more freely and be moved.

Business is nothing else than a clew of human relationships. (Lee Iacocca)

 

A for AWARENESS

Be aware of oneself and one‘s effect on others.

Those around me notice every one of my conscious and unconscious actions and assign them with meanings. Only by becoming aware of my behaviour and habits can I direct and change these (more) consciously. Reconciling my self-image with my influence on others demands clarity in cooperation and prevents confusion.

I am actually completely different, I just rarely get round to it. (Ödön von Horvath)

 

L for LOVE

Love who you are and what you do.

“Love” describes an internal attitude of appreciation for myself as a person: Taking my needs, aspirations and values seriously and taking responsibility for my own health and ability to work. This is the foundation of CALM leadership and it influences all other components.

There is no right life in the wrong one. (Theodor W. Adorno)

 

M for MIND LIKE WATER

Here & Now – pause, reflect, act (differently).

If you pour water into a glass, it doesn’t retain the shape of the bottle but rather it “becomes” the glass. If you throw a pebble into a lake, the movement of the waves in the water corresponds exactly to the weight and volume of this pebble. The water does not overreact but it also does not fail to react completely. “Mind like water” means being in the present moment fully and completely, and reacting appropriately to the situation.

Step back to lead forward. (Kevin Cashman)

Contact means facing others, oneself and one’s areas of development with authenticity.

Contact

is something that NoTool truly believes in. Establishing relationships with people, their personal concerns and the key points of their organisation. No matter whether it’s about developing managers and key actors or supporting them through processes of change, NoTool puts the emphasis on getting involved, having discussions and meeting people.

Guiding change

Why go straight to being objective if being personal still works. (Anton Kuh)

At a glance, it often seems complex and difficult but on the whole, almost all the workshops that we organise personally with our clients focus on one simple principle: Bringing the actual topics into the open and calling them what they are, having the courage to challenge yourself and others, confronting people with their behaviour and their influence. Creating the willingness to act out conflict openly if not everything can be resolved. Resolving relationships before resolving issues is our guiding principle and sets out the sequence we follow. And that means our clients also reach their goal quicker.

Management development

What our clients have most of all are knowledge and tools. Above all, what they need are managers and employees who can apply these tools authentically and effectively. The thing that is missing and that therefore needs to be developed further, is the personality of the people. We make management a truly personal matter, for our clients and for us. As such, management development is always personal development as well. For us, management means starting with yourself and finding your own style and your own harmony when dealing with all the questions of management and leadership.

What you are speaks so loudly, I can’t hear what you say. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Personal development for managers and key actors

An effective, authentic and energetic leader is essential for corporate success.

NoTool guides, confronts and pushes managers. Learning to trust fully in your own strengths, being aware of your weaknesses and managing effectively are the cornerstones of our approach – management development is personal development.

Being able to lead authentically and reliably outside your comfort zone as well – i.e. in challenging situations with lots of conflict – is one of the major aims for participants of the mostly multi-part
NoTool Management Development Programmes.

Only a few managers realise that in the end, they only have to manage one person. And that person is themselves. (Peter F. Drucker)
