Promoting leadership and management development
Leadership serves for the implementation of strategy. Once the goals have been decided on and the measures for achieving them defined, they have to be implemented by decisive leadership. This is above all a major challenge for change management.
In general a new strategy or a fundamental change means that managers have to make a change in their thinking about leadership and in their leadership behaviour. They also have to acquire new know-how, because the demands on their leadership have changed.
As a result of companies which are changing constantly and the increasing complexity of the tasks and requirements involved, the significance of good leadership is growing. This applies all the more to executives in international management positions. With regard to the profile of the role and personality required, the "global manager" is without a doubt the most visible example.
According to a study by the well-known Center for Creative Leadership, in future soft skills will continue to grow in importance for leadership — the ability to build up and maintain relationships is becoming more significant, combined with change management skills.
The enhancement of leadership skills in the company is systematically increased by the three-stage JP concept for making leadership more vital and dynamic:
- Implementing the four dimensions of leadership
- Establishing and developing the management team
- The two levels of leadership communication
Changing leadership behaviour is more than training. It means developing the thinking and attitudes of management personnel and providing individual transfer support.
Leadership is learnt by leading and not by talking about leadership. JP seminars and learning projects for executives are therefore consistently action-oriented and directly linked with the specific tasks of the participants.

When asked about the causes of their success in a major change process, a group of team leaders and foremen replied: "We lost our fear of leadership. Today our thinking is different from what it was at the start - and the same applies to our workforce. Even our management has changed. The important thing is to lead in a clear way, to keep both people and task within your range of vision at the same time ....."
