Utilizing the collective genius of the organization to effectively achieve results
Gunter has been working in strategic and organizational consulting for more than twenty years. In over 400 projects in all kind of industries around the globe he has seen again and again that the best solutions for complex issues are already in existence in an organization but are dispersed among many different smart brains across all functions and levels. This is why Gunter often chooses to work with large and diverse groups of executives and specialists, ranging from 5 to 500 members. By designing systemic and holistic processes that start with the question “what is our true purpose?” all the way to reaching ambitious and measurable results, he manages to achieve a maximum of consensus and commitment for change throughout the organization. Gunter is a highly experienced and excellent facilitator who truly inspires his audience and regularly receives feedback from attendants like “this was the best workshop I ever attended in my life”. He prefers to tell managers what they need to hear rather than what they want to hear and is very outspoken when it comes to addressing the root causes of symptoms he observes. His sound education in cybernetics and systemic thinking helps him to very effectively identify the most pressing shortfalls and to develop concise and customized solutions. His clients would state that he addresses challenges very precisely, works very reliably and that he mixes his professionalism with a generous dash of humor and empathy.
In his private life Gunter likes the extremes. From long and adventurous journeys with his wife and two children to remote destinations, mountaineering and underwater expeditions all the way to large events in his local garden. A typical working week consists of anything between 2 and 90 hours, not least depending on wind and weather conditions at Lake Constance in Germany which he calls home.
