My core topics

Purpose oriented work with focus on sustainability

Trustful cooperation with all stakeholders

Value creation through clear roles

Transparency and structures to go easy and sustainably on resources

Agile Sustainability

I will help you when you feel that you need more of this in your organization:

  • Connectedness and mutual trust – more than orders, guidance and control;
  • Self-organization and agile networks – more than organizational charts and positions;
  • Courageous experiments and learning from the unknown – more than copy and paste of old models;
  • Meaningful tasks and a clear purpose as a guiding star for emotional manifestation of visions – more than executing strategies, and sticking to structures and processes.

How does a consulting process with Robert Strohmaier proceed?

  1. In a free initial meeting we talk about the reason for your request and we quickly figure out what you need, where you want to go and what I can do for you. I will ask you specific questions and you will see very quickly whether you would like to continue working with me.
  2. Subsequently we clarify your expexcations and my assignment (if we have not done this immediately at the end of the initial meeting), we clarify what your specific concerns, where you want to go, and what else is perhaps important, and you did not take into consideration yet. From this conversation you may already derive helpful suggestions for further steps by your own.
    Then I draft a concept in writing with a suggested procedure and a cost calculation; on request you get a timeline with dates too.
  3. In the course of our cooperation, we work on your objectives and/or we design what you need; you receive reports and feedback on a regular basis; if necessary, we also re-clarify the assignment. This ensures that the work always proceeds according to your assignment, even if changes occur.
  4. With my support you develop apt solutions, work on easing tensions and conflicts or you clarify new roles and interfaces in the organization. Perhaps we do strategizing and run well-organized experiments in order to try out new things in your organization or in order to make the organization more agile. Possibly you want to reposition yourself/your organization in a very new way.
  5. After completion we do an evaluation or – some time afterwards – a follow-up so that the tasks accomplished can be assessed and, if necessary, next steps can be planned.

What is the time affordance to be expected for a team coaching?

  • For an individual coaching we usually need 3 to 4 units of around 1 ½ to 2 hours. By this, a lot can be achieved for most coaching cases.
  • I facilitate many team coachings as “team days”. In just one day, the most important tensions are identified and helpful steps for relief are developed. In this way, the team can continue working immediately. And whilst the team day, the team experiences and learns,how they can tackle tensions together; this helps them to finding solutions by themselves next time.

How did Robert Strohmaier's work recently develop?

  • Due to the developments of the last years (technological, electronic …), the effects on organizations and the people working in the organizations have changed significantly. We describe this with tendencies such as dynamization, globalization, diversity, digitalization, and disruption.
  • These tendencies have created contexts that we may no longer call “simple” or “complicated” instead we mostly experience them to be “complex”, “chaotic” – or finally – like in the sudden changes in almost all areas of life in a pandemic – we may even feel the „hyperturbulence“. Planning and controlling have given way to a large number of – often still unknown – options. That is challenging both people and organizations. New skills are required, there are no “right” answers and concepts; instead, tendencies, probabilities and patterns must be recognized. The potential – as well as the risks – of the use of artificial intelligence, which are already recognizable at the moment, suggest that the requirements for people in organizations will be far greater in the future.
  • All of this requires humans who are able to work together in connectedness and with trust, and cooperate towards meaningful purposes in helpful organizational structures.
  • I develop concepts that help to dealing with the „unknown unknown“ in order not to get lost in it:
    • I help you to refocus on the power of connectedness that each of us has experienced yet before we were born;
    • We work with settings and tools that foster trustful cooperation;
    • We develop (operational) systems and structures that establish order, predictability and assessability;
    • We trigger your desire for new things, for experimentation and for learning, for growth and for a sense of purpose that provides you with inner strength and gives a clear direction for your work.
