Cooperation; teamwork

In productive teams and working groups each member makes his or her contribution and staff and managers take on the responsibility for common aims. Tasks and areas of responsibility are clearly defined, communication is open and respectful and any problems or differences of opinion are actively addressed.

Wherever people work together, crises may arise, despite the greatest efforts of all concerned, or bad habits may creep in. Trust and motivation may decrease. Often it is difficult to get out of a negative situation on one’s own.

We are well acquainted with the requirements of effective teamwork and with the dynamics of team processes and have the necessary knowledge as to how these processes can be reflected, properly influenced and, if necessary, redirected.

We take on the following tasks on behalf of our clients:

  • consulting and further training for managers in the development of teams, groups or working groups,
  • drawing up and presenting team development processes,
  • running workshops: defining the present situation; clarifying a mandate, roles, tasks and processes; examining current dynamics; conflict management.

onion: Consultancy Network

As partners in onion: Consultancy Network we are linked by a mutual desire for a society in which a balance exists between economic, ecological and social values. At the same time, this desire is the guiding principle for what we do and how we do it.

Through our consultancy work we help to ensure that companies and organisations are successful in the marketplace and that their staff produce effective work in a positive working environment that allows them to develop.

As a rule, our task is to help steer, monitor and assess our clients’ development processes. Our work is based on the awareness that the responsibility for a problem and how to solve it lies at all times with the client, that there is not necessarily only one correct way to meet the client’s requirements and that our intervention can produce desired and undesired effects, even in unexpected places. This systemic understanding influences how we work.

The basis for cooperation at onion: Consultancy Network is mutual trust, openness and concern, an interest in what the other partners are doing and in the possibility of joint professional development. We work together for our clients, we exchange know-how and experience and we learn with and from each other.

The partners in onion are all independent from a business point of view and each is responsible for his or her own products and for marketing them. We are linked by a network because in this way we can achieve added professional and personal value for our clients and for our professional activities.

onion: Consultancy Network was founded in 1991.
