A regional director for a multinational construction company convinces his entire management team that they should jointly own and drive the team's goal and strategies, rather than each team member focusing solely on their own area of responsibility.
Over the next five years, turnover and profits rise by 35 percent, equating to an increase in turnover of EUR 100 million (USD 121.2 million). On top of this 35 percent, the profit itself increases by another 10 percent.
According to the regional director, getting the whole team to share ownership, focus on the market in a collaborative fashion, and communicate openly took courage - not just from him but from every team member.
On top of the strong financial results, team members' appreciation for each other and their collaboration increased, and they now wanted to meet more often.
The regional director is now an Executive Vice President. Wherever he goes he creates a courageous team who shares ownership. The results speak for themselves.
A private health centre increases their phone availability from 35% to 94% during a period of only 3-4 months. New services are created, continuity is increased, and finances grow from red to black numbers during the same year.
A new manager, a courageous leader and nurse by the name of Natalie, leads the change. In her very first meeting with the 15 doctors, they met her with crossed arms and declared "Just so you know we do not want a nurse as our boss." She listened and then told them "I respect your opinion and I have received this assignment. I expect you to join me on the journey."
