Good People Management
We make your company and
your employees more successful
What we stand for as GPM, and how we create added value for our customers, as a consulting company.
who we are
We are a team of distinguished consultants and experienced managers who efficiently bring about and effectively implement rapid and long-term corporate success.
what we do
Together with our clients, we explore the core of entrepreneurial opportunities and risks, design the appropriate measures and implement the transformation.
how we do it
Passionate, creative, effective, measurable: with absolute quality standards.
Personal: from initial contact to implementation
Who we do it for
For small, medium & large enterprises in various industries, in the private as well as in the public sector
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
Our service spectrum ranges from small, targeted interventions to large, company-wide change processes. For a sustainable anchoring of your culture and strategy, we combine approaches and methods from business administration, psychology and brain research with our implementation-oriented leadership and management systems.
A common vision by all employees and managers regarding the orientation of the company and the measures necessary to master the future successfully generates commitment and willingness to change. Using an effective target agreement system, we support the transformation of targets into daily business at all levels of the company.
the successful cultural transformation
Increasing performance and satisfaction through a corporate culture that is in line with your strategy
Using an implementation-oriented system for cultural transformation, we accompany the process of cultural (further) development, from the diagnosis of culture through the generation of values, all the way to the anchoring of those values. Through a bottom-up/top-down approach, we ensure that the desired culture is in line with both the needs of the employees and the economic goals of the company. The result: wide acceptance and a high level of compatibility with the strategy.
We increase trust and commitment, thereby improving teamwork. Clear rules of the game coupled with the way tasks and responsibilities are designed, lead to a successful corporate policy, with a standardized corporate and management concept.
the effective management
We only apply implementation-oriented management instruments, and we provide the managers with support during the implementation process, so that they are able to assume their leadership responsibility or focus on the “right” things.
the lasting behavioral change
The main reason for this is usually old habits and how difficult it is to give them up. To change persistent habits or in-house rituals in the long term, however, classical methods of behavioral change, such as awareness campaigns, knowledge training and motivation training are not sufficient.
We take it one step further, by equipping employees and managers with the skills and tools they need for sustainable, individual behavioral change, or for the building of desired habits. After all, not only motivated employees, but especially those employees who have implementation and behavioral change skills are essential for the success of a company.
In order to achieve this, together with the client, we analyze the management culture, the existing structures and the processes, along with employee behavior, and identify blind spots in the current safety culture. Building on this, we implement measures, the effect of which is not only visible in the improvement of your safety performance, but which also has positive effects in terms of increased quality, yield and innovation.
