Daily work routine
We trust you when it comes to hours worked. This means we look at the results and not at the time spent. Working hours vary from customer project to customer project. The "ramp-up" phase at the beginning is often very labor-intensive, so that the end of the workday is often pushed back. Then there are days when the evening program starts before the daily news airs. It really is short and sweet: Yes, as change consultants, we enjoy working. There are always days that include overtime and weekends full of work. And it is up to each and every one of us to decide how full his or her calendar should be and where he or she can create space for him or herself.
Do you enjoy swimming? Great! Because with us, you´ll be jumping into cold water or shaking off your old habits frequently."
Our understanding of our role as consultants
Are you familiar with the iceberg model?
Now you're probably thinking, "But rational procedures are great." And of course, we agree with you. We work on the surface of the iceberg with our proven, as well as our newly developed, tools and methods of change management. We work in a structured and prepared manner, always thinking two steps ahead so as not to overlook the "Titanic".
But from our understanding, this is only a half-truth: In addition to the rational, we also value intuition.
We are different!
Our change consultants develop solutions on all three levels of change: strategic, cultural and structural."
Our added value is the precise application of methods and knowledge. We are convinced that successful consulting requires clear consulting impulses and coaching elements in addition to full support of the process. In this world, we see ourselves as change consultants, coaches, trainers, moderators and mediators.
The spirit of K&P
It's different with you guys. It's obvious that you really enjoy this. When something sparks, the desire to get started is immense!"
- Authenticity: What unites us as consultants is the passion to want to understand systems and to set the right impulses in the right place. It is obvious that we, as a change consultants, understand the systemic perspective as a world view. We act on a human level in order to penetrate economic and complex situations and to emphasize the right features. In doing so, we get to know our clients as people - beyond the numbers-data-factors.
- Engagement: Or call it "drive", "spin", "power"... We are intrinsically driven and show full commitment when it comes to solving problems. We enjoy changing, disrupting and thinking. This is noticeable at the client's premises, during internal processes, as well as at client events.
- Expert knowledge and process support: We bring with us many tools and methods: Method maps, templates, procedures, etc... But that alone is not enough. We are practically oriented and know how to apply these methods in the right places. We are true to the motto: "Knowledge is good! But doing is better!" We create facts and breathe life into checklists, procedures and project plans.
- Fun: We truly have fun during our projects when we can work together to solve problems. We act out things and crack even the toughest nuts. In doing so we also take some unconventional paths and use humor to reduce and penetrate the complexity of the problem. Our conviction: Only those who laugh will manage! Fun is the fuel for motivation.
Why are you part of the "good guys"?
It is important to us to work together with our clients as true partners. We often find that we have an impact on systems, on individual people all the way through the entire organization. And sometimes this isn´t easy when there is resistance, fears and negative experiences. We pay attention to these signs and use them to find and work with the true pain points of a system.
Can I experience the "Spirit of K&P"?
Sure thing. You can either come attend one of our open seminars or one of our next events.
Where will my office be?
Your office is where you're needed. Often, this is directly at the client's premises. Or at your home. Or on the train. Or... As you can see, we are very flexible when working.
Do I really have to move to Bruchsal?
Haha. No, you don't have to do that. You can, however, if you want to... We are located all over Germany and have our back office in Bruchsal. It´s there where we will meet for internal training sessions and to play a few rounds of Foosball/Krökel.
What does a typical work week look like for you?
This varies greatly depending on the client projects and your workload. There may be projects where you are on the road 4-5 days a week. Others take 2-3 days. Typically, there is hardly anything "typical" in our profession as change consultants.
Is there a core working time?
That's an interesting question. We are set up in teams. For the client, for internal projects, for collegial consultation. That is why there is no true core working team. We are subject to the law of agreement. Often, we are on the phone during the early morning hours to coordinate and exchange ideas. How you organize your own workday depends on many factors - and your performance.
Will I be a part of international projects?
Sure, if you want to be. We have international projects with various requirements. As you will be in contact with all our customer service representatives, you can also make them aware you are interested in an international project.
