Gerardo Alvarez"We’ve been negotiating a tough market for the past year as the Spanish Government enforced a co-payment initiative in July 2012.  However, this did not deter us, working closely with our commercial areas we made a step change in our approach to secure more market share.  Our efforts over the last year have paid dividends and we see our market share increasing"

Give open and honest feedback about performance

DKARE"Feeback is an essential leadership tool for me in order to grow my employees. I use the bi-weekly one-to-one meetings I have with my direct reports to provide frequent feedback on their performance. To ensure my feedback is relevant and has an impact, I link it to the employees current work situation as well as to their development plans.”

Show visible and decisive leadership

Dennis Kaysen"For me visible leadership means being available whenever a team member needs to spar on a specific project or deliverable. I will always find some time for a ‘walk and talk’ or a cup of coffee. I show decisiveness in my leadership when I am asked to help make a decision on a particular matter. I prefer to let my team members make their own decisions or at least make a recommendation. However, if they are not able to, then I will make the needed decision with speed and conviction."

Dennis Kaysen, Director, Corporate Communication

Focus teams on delivering business results

Bianca Kiss

“It’s important that everybody understands the business targets and our focus areas. Every week I have a one to one meeting with each employee to talk about how they’re doing and what’s happening. Then we challenge and inspire each other on relevant topics and tasks – this dialogue is really powerful.”

Bianca Kiss, Market Manager, Marketing, Austria
