Why Agile Crisis Coaching – helping each other in challenging times

The Corona Virus/Covid-19 has caused major global crisis. Large, mid cap and small companies, freelancers and every human being suddenly finds him or herself in an extreme situation. Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity (VUCA) are just now striking all our lives. The purpose of Agile Crisis Coaching is to help and support everyone who needs rational or emotional support to master this crisis and together emerge from these difficult times even stronger than before.

As a strategist, coach and mentor for innovation, business transformation and change management, navigating transitions, proactively managing crisis and coaching individuals is part of my daily business life. This is why I developed the Neostability® model. Caused by this Covid-19 situation I now decided to contribute on a wider scale and offer all my experience, skills and methodologies to help anyone who needs and wants it to navigate through this challenging time. With Agile Crisis Coaching I can help to identify key challenges, prioritise, ideate on new solutions and get started with new routines that will help you in an accessible, easy, smart and lean way. No rocket science behind it, just some tipps and tricks, structure, methodology and kowledge-sharing.

In the course of this I would like to thank everyone for contributing in his or her very individual way to make us stronger together. If everyone contributes with super small things and gestures, we can all together change the game.

Lean support for everyone

Everyone who feels the need to express their worries and concerns and find fast and lean ideas and solutions to master actual business and private life challenges. Find smart and small solutions to eat this elephant bite by bite. Do, learn, adapt. Stay pro-active, never loose the courage to try out something new.

How it works – open chats and private sessions

The Agile Crisis Coaching offers a hosted video conference hotline which is open Mon-Fri 10-11 am (CET) at Zoom https://us04web.zoom.us/j/696916881. Everyone can join the conversation – just enter the Zoom channel at the beginning of the session for moderated group discussions.

For more privacy I offer closed video sessions related to your specific needs. You can send an email for an appointment to acc@neostability.com. Sessions will be organised by calendar.

What I do – the formats

  1. Hosted group discussions (40-60 Min) and experience sharing and learning from each other in open sessions in a mixed group. Mon-Fri from10-11 am (CET) at Zoom https://us04web.zoom.us/j/696916881 . Just hop-in, join and share. (This session is for free!)
  2. One-on-one coaching (10-30 Min) in private video conference sessions. Please make an appointment at acc@neostability.com. You will receive a confirmation invitation to your calendar. You can choose Skype, Zoom or Google Hangout.
  3. Virtual video conferences moderation for groups to get used to well-structured, virtual conversations and calls. If you need a host and moderator, please contact me: acc@neostability.com 
  4. Daily updates (15 Min) The SCRUM methodology offers a valuable ritual which organises groups working on a specific project or topic to update each other on daily objectives and tasks to keep everyone informed and on track. I will offer this ritual for single and private people, too. Please make an appointment via email: acc@neostability.com 
  5. Active Listening (10-30 Min) for those who just feel the need to address their concerns and worries and need someone who listens actively and carefully and helps to reflect. Often having an active listener asking the right question helps to find new perspectives and gain clarity to identify valuable next steps and resources. Please make an appointment via email: acc@neostability.com

Duration of a session – keep it short

A session should not take longer than 10-30 Minutes, depending on the topic and need. Talking too long about things does not lead to proper and lean solutions, rather having a focussed approach on how to tackle a specific short term problem helps much better.

Conversation language – for a better understanding

Open group sessions will be English, private sessions can be moderated in German, English or Dutch.

Fee – pay as you can

Many companies and private people have a little up to no financial backbone at the moment, others do not have too heavy financial turbulences. But they all want and need crisis management and communication support. I decided to let everyone decide what they want to pay. While I usually offer top-management consulting and coaching per hour or day, in this case you should feel free to pay whatever you feel it is worth it. As sessions are rather short and recurring, many pay an average fee of 2€ per Minute.

Payment process – no bureaucracy

You can pay via PAYPAL to acc@neostability.com. Related to your payment you will afterwards get a receipt to the sender´s email address with your ammount (please consider to include a 19% VAT that I will note in your digital document).

No-show – a matter of solidarity and fairness

A No-show will take other people´s opportunity to use precious time. I trust you that you will be there and on time, when a session starts. After 10 Minutes of No-show the meeting will be cancelled.

Data protection and disclosure – as safe as possible

As data security and disclosure is an important issue, none of your topics addressed or content shared will be stored. For the data protection rules of video conference tools like Google Hangout, Zoom or Skype I can´t take any responsibility. With entering these channels data protection rules from the providers will have to be accepted.

Disclaimer – at your own risk

As I am acting in a coaching role, no matter if just sparring or advice-like communication and interaction, I do not take any responsibility for any outcome. Everything you decide and release from the conversations will be at your own risk. With starting the sessions or conversations you automatically accept these terms.

Zero value of one’s track record unless one is willing to develop towards the future.

Continuous Transformation

I help to understand how increasing complexity and digitalization are changing business and organization, and what that means in concrete terms for the company. How do you position yourself in the future and how do you become neostable? I help CEOs, executives and operative teams to reflect openly and critically on new opportunities and to derive relevant strategic approaches, processes and solutions, to adapt continuously and thus to become future-proof.

Corporate Strategy

Regardless of whether it is about growth in the core business or new business areas or the establishment of new business ecosystems: I support you in developing relevant strategies, setting up innovation processes (innovation governance) and making relevant decisions: make, buy or parter-up? I look at the strategically relevant options from various perspectives and take into account the relevance and digital context as well as the feasibility.

Innovation Strategy

I promote future-oriented thinking and acting. Building on human-centered knowledge and deriving innovations from it requires an understanding of human needs, wishes and expectations. I support in identifying the potential along the market potential, technology development and customer needs and developing new, innovative business models (e.g. with Lean Startup, Design Thinking, agile, Scrum)

Disruptive Innovation

I clarify where business and organization are in the age of digitalization and disruption. I point out possible conflicts, deficits and inconsistencies and make transparent where the causes lie. I identify potential for change and give recommendations for action. The principle: ask questions, look behind the scenes, understand. I take my time for that. Take my Disruptive Innovation Maturity Assessment and you will get a first idea of ​​where you are today.

Corporate Development

I support the development of measures to increase company value and business relevance. Together with you, I develop timetables and programs, define goals, KPIs, OKRs, business plans. As a strategist, business designer, project manager, mentor or program manager, I support the implementation in the innovation, organizational development and transformation process.

Value Design

I develop basics such as purpose, mission, creed, values, tonality as well as personas and value proposition – right through to creating the associated story. Because every new direction requires a clear philosophy, attitude and subsequent communication. The identity, meaning and purpose of the company are the foundation and orientation for future business activities and the behavior of the entire organization.

Brand Transformation

Brands are taking on a whole new meaning due to the breakdown of industries and branches, changing customer behavior and digitization effects. The corporate brand as well as product brands have to give themselves a new meaning and context. As a brand strategist with extensive experience as a “ma®kenkind” in all branding questions, I support companies in this transformation process as a whole, from strategy to process to implementation.

Thought Leadership

I am constantly developing new approaches and methods, giving lectures and developing individual, lively, interactive workshops and training courses for top management, executives and operational teams – from digitization to innovation management, transformation or newer topics such as adaptive strategy, system thinking and complexity management. I also develop lectures that are tailored to the individual needs of my clients.

Change Management

The speed and complexity of the new world can be overwhelming, creating uncertainty and crises. Transformation begins with a new attitude towards culture throughout the organization i.S.v. Structure, leadership, roles and collaboration. I support decision-makers and managers in setting up new topics such as new leadership and organizational design, and help to anchor new ways of thinking and working and to fill them with life.
