Defining the task and what needs to be achieved
Temporary leadership begins with an intake that makes clear what kind of leadership is needed in the given situation. The intake is also about whether I can offer added value in this situation. Based on the intake, I briefly describe the assignment as I see it and the conditions necessary to fulfill the mission.
Understanding the situation and the approach needed
Once the task has been assigned, I start with my personal orientation and analysis. How this phase will be designed largely depends on the type of assignment. I describe the framework of the assignment in more detail together with a proposal for targets, approach and planning.
Within the agreed framework, I operate within my standards of leadership. When the situation requires operating outside of the box, I involve and consult with the customer. During the execution of the contract, periodic meetings are scheduled to report and review progress.
After completion, an evaluation of the assignment is scheduled to ensure that the task has been completed in a satisfactory manner.
