1-Focus International deals with the issues surrounding change and leadership development with a holistic, systemic and integrated approach. Our particular passion is assisting leaders and organizations learn how to navigate the waters of merging businesses, departments and teams while ensuring that they continue to grow and sustain vibrant and united organizations.
Mergers and Acquisitions often create winners and losers at both the corporate level and for individual staff. One culture unseats another. One employee outweighs another. Power struggles prevail. While policy and organizational decisions are made from above, the organization waits . . . It sits in limbo and disengages from its focus. Engaging across corporate cultures could be a near-fluid process of creating meaningful, value-driven focus and corporate loyalty from the onset.
But reality is: Nearly 80% of all mergers and acquisitions fail due to an inability to combine cultures and visions, resulting in internal conflict and political in-fighting. Our Merger Readiness Program assists in traversing through this terrain.
Leadership style, timing and a collaborative implementation approach
fostering employee participation tip the scales between enabling
engagement versus disengagement across cultures, thereby establishing
the requisite new corporate identity, focus, loyalty and purpose.
