OUR WORK


TURN DIVERSITY INTO A COMPETIVE ADVANTAGE

Diversity in teams reduces group thinking and improves innovation and strengthens the business potential.

TURN specializes in career development for female managers and in supporting international companies in the transformation towards a better gender balance at all organizational levels.

TURN is currently involved in several diversity projects including a CBS Executive Leadership Program, ”Leading Women”, as well as customized leadership workshops and programs aimed at working with behavioral patterns and unconscious biases which sometimes are powerful, yet invisible, barriers to women’s advancement. TURN is also involved as speakers at conferences.

As an integral part of the process, TURN conducts a cultural analysis that assesses the current state of diversity in the organization followed up by identifying the right strategy and actions needed to balancing gender.

TURN KOMPETENCE INTO NEW PRACTICE

The process includes understanding internal stakeholders’ needs, searching for best practice as well as to tailor-making, designing and delivering training to the participants.

TURN is dedicated to exceeding customers’ and other stakeholders’ expectations, and we always strive for delivering on the learning objectives set by the organization as well as on the value experienced by the participants.

TURN draws from strong network of renowned Danish and international academic institutions and professionals within lecturing, workshop execution, mentoring and the process facilitation of educational programs.

TURN service strategy into executional excellence

TURN is a premier partner within service excellence. We identify barriers and motivation for change, and direct strategies for delivering on the brand promise and customers' expectations in service organisations.  

Moving the service brand in a desired direction demands attention on leadership and culture, and insights into ways of building the required internal capabilities to effectively implement the service strategy.

Therefore, we immerse ourselves in the industry, the organization and its business units and learn through observation, interviews and analysis applying an ethnographic approach. 

This is the foundation for identifying cultural, managerial and organizational drivers, barriers and solutions for equipping and training the organization’s future change agents. These are prerequisites for effectively revising and implementing the service strategy internally. 

The result: the service strategy becomes meaningful and drives the organization and its key stakeholders in the same direction and leaves the organization empowered and agile.
