Various forms of direction and growth

A top company. Large and built on security. Extreme punctual delivery. The best in its class in Europe. All uncertainties perfectly visualized and controlled. By far the best performance as a key player in public transportation. Even future challenges have been identified. Next question: how do we deal with this? We understand the procedures and routines which are at the core of our daily performance. Next step, how do we forge our way into the future? In what way do we get our own young top professionals in action? They understand the future opportunities and risks. Taking initiative and perseverance are what matter now. We call it a talent program - a maternity room for innovation.

“I often encounter different ways in which various forms of direction and control are used for the management of people in organizations. Yet when freedom comes from within, guiding people should focus on the development of their unique capacities and ambitions. Direct all energy at the core individuality.”

Key elements

With our partners and clients, we looked for the heart of our business. What elements (and when and why) are at the core of our joint success?


Personal contacts are the foundation. Here we find opportunities. Not just service delivery.  No endless tenders. We stand united. We stand for what we want to achieve. In a crucial coalition. And ensure it will flourish.

“Everything starts when people meet each other. People who actually see each other, recognize something, have a bond. It's about a real connection. The quality of the encounter and the bonding thereafter as the foundation for performance."


Getting aboard in regard to what needs to be done - without hesitation. And starting with a shared point of view. As it is essential to have a mutual fascination for what lies ahead and to experience similar challenges. With the aim to ensure it remains this way, all the way.

"A target is not a full stop, but an areato be explored."


Adjusting as a core task. Carefully looking at the effects and determining the next step, again and again.  Lessons learned are integrated whenever possible in what lies ahead. Both flexible and driven.

“The freedom to function is not found in word games or in any theory. It only exists in practice, this freedom. Thus, you do engage as needed with the headquarter, a steering committee or a controller. You stand up for what you believe in. Always and consistently."
