5 Irrglauben, die Dich davon abhalten,
eine noch bessere Führungskraft zu werden.

1. „Ich stecke zu tief im Tagesgeschäft!“

Der Klassiker. Bei Licht betrachtet, geht es selten um zu viel Arbeit aber immer um zu wenig Priorisierung. Und Rückgrat, diese dann auch durchzuhalten.

2. „Ich bekomme keine Ziele!“

Führen bedeutet erschaffen. Erschaffe Dir Deine Ziele, wenn Du keine von oben bekommst! Nur lass Deine Organisation keinesfalls alleine.

3. „Ich kann hier nirgends gute Führung beobachten und abschauen.“

Leider immer noch der Standardzustand: Zu wenig Vorgesetzte taugen als Role-Models. Eine Gruppe von Menschen um sich herum zu haben, mit der Du Deine Führungsideen diskutieren kannst, ist Gold wert.

4. „Im Unternehmen hört mir keiner zu.“

Eine oft genannte Klage, gerade von den Kollegen in der IT. Du hast Ideen und würdest Dich einbringen wollen, und doch… Nur zu oft liegt es an der Art der Ideen-Präsentation.

5. „Wir haben zu viel zu tun!“

Ehrlich? Das habe ich ja noch nie gehört! Entschuldige die Ironie: JEDE Abteilung ist ausgelastet. Besonders IT-Abteilungen finden immer genug, sich zu beschäftigen. Das bedeutet im Wesentlichen, dass Du Deine Leute nicht ausreichend steuerst…

Bevor Du mehr über das LeadershipStars Program erfährst, habe ich noch ein paar Fragen an Dich:

Trifft einer oder mehrere Punkte auf Dich zu?

Dann habe ich großartige Neuigkeiten.

Ich helfe Dir, diese Probleme zu lösen!

LeadershipStars 2021 - Das Ergebnis einer mittlerweile vierjährigen Entwicklung mit über 140 erfolgreichen Absolventen.

LeadershipStars – Das Ergebnis einer mittlerweile vierjährigen Entwicklung mit über 140 erfolgreichen Absolventen.

Im Oktober 2017 vermittelte ich die wirksamsten Methoden der besten Führungskräfte im damaligen IT-YoungStars-Program zum ersten Mal.

In kürzester Zeit waren die Plätze vergeben.

Jeder einzelne brannte darauf, die Wirksamkeitsmethoden und Erfolgsstrategien auf seine eigene Organisation und seine eigenen Ziele anzuwenden.

Durch permanentes Feedback wird das Programm permanent verfeinert. Basierend auf was in der Praxis WIRKLICH funktioniert und Du direkt umsetzen kannst.

"hat mich davon abgehalten, ein paar Fehler zu machen"

Alex ist bereits sehr erfahren und führt Teams. Die Diskussionen über Ziele vs. Tätigkeiten haben ihm sehr weitergeholfen:

"Durch die One on Ones funktioniert das jetzt"

Jörg hatte ein sehr schlechtes Verhältnis zu einem seiner Mitarbeiter. Durch das Werkzeug “One on One” ist dieses nun geheilt.

"wir haben vorher zu viel mi-mi-mi gemacht"

Claus berichtet an ganz oben. Im LeadershipCoaching fand er die Lösung für ein seit Monaten schwelendes Problem.

"hat mich davon abgehalten, ein paar Fehler zu machen"

Alex ist bereits sehr erfahren und führt Teams. Die Diskussionen über Ziele vs. Tätigkeiten haben ihm sehr weitergeholfen:

"die Mitarbeiter bedanken sich sehr dafür"

Die Führungswerkzeuge wirken. Thomas bringt es deutlich auf den Punkt, wie die Mitarbeiter das sehen.

"die (Mitarbeiter) machen es jetzt sogar selber"

Silvan hat des Kanban-Modul genau zur richtigen Zeit gefunden und er freut sich sehr über die Darstellung.

Das LeadershipStars Program bringt Dich in die Position des entspannten Ablieferers und damit zur bevorzugten Wahl für mehr Einfluss.

Ich habe weder Kosten noch Mühen gescheut, damit dieses einzigartige Intensivcoaching Deinen Umsetzungserfolg sicherstellt. Denn hier geht es NICHT darum, dass Du Informationen konsumierst.

 

Hier geht es um praktische Umsetzung bewiesener, allgemeingültiger Strategien erfolgreicher Führungskräfte und das Meistern einer der bestbezahltesten Fähigkeiten der Welt.

 

Die Fähigkeit, Teams auf ein Ziel ausrichten und dieses zuverlässig erreichen.

English is the Lingua Franca of international leadership, the content of this program will be in ENGLISH!

4 things you take away from this coaching for yourself

1) Clarity on your way

There are so many options and too often people pick, what they get offered. You will know what you really want and decide based on your needs.

2) Well-functioning team

Good leaders know the mechanics of communication, appreciation, motivation of people. Great teams don’t happen, they are made.

3) Well delivering organization

Your Organization will deliver what really counts. All the clutter got eliminated, performance got improved, delivery optimized.

4) Leadership Stars Mindset

Your inner blocks are released, and you achieve your financial goals with absolute self-conviction because you are worth it.

How is the LeadershipStars Program
structured in detail?

1) Leadership Foundations

You took over your first Leadership Role or you are close to it? You want to prepare yourself for this step? First of all: Congratulations on this step! A lot of new managers mess it up terribly in the first year, be better!

Your people look at you, they expect leadership. Your job is now to make them do the right things.

Your boss watches you carefully, as he is responsible for your results. Many new leaders mess up because they don’t know the Leadership Foundations.

Leadership is a responsibility. Master it!
I will show you, how. Take advantage of my good 20 Years of experience in leadership.

This is the Leadership Foundations Curriculum:

  • Improve yourself: Leadership is a mind-game. Great leaders share a certain mindset, they have more clarity on the right things. I will give you the important things in a condensed form.
  • Improve your Employees: Gain their trust, improve their behavior using two of my most valuable courses: One on Ones and Feedback.
  • Improve your Team: The fast majority of teams out there miss the most important piece as a team: joint goals. My Teams Goals Process fills this gap and catapults your teams output. This all will be reinforced by the Employees Development Process.
  • Extend the Team: There will come the time when you need to recruit new employees. Too often this ends in a disaster because the leaders don’t know how and their HR isn’t as good and/or helpful as we want them to be.
  • Improve your Impact: Your Ideas need to be heard by your boss and the superiors. And taken over. This makes presentations-skills significant.
  • Improve your Time: Self Effectiveness is the main discipline you want to master. And it’s the name of my best-selling course and part of this program.

2) Organization Foundations

The world changes into IT, each company must follow. You are an essential resource for your organization!

This is the Organization Foundations Curriculum:

  • Improve your Processes: An incredible high number of IT-Leaders don’t have solid knowledge on some basic-Processes. Instead, they waste time to develop the wheel again, or they waste time and effort in cleaning up, what’s caused by missing processes. I will give you the basics on PRINCE2, ITIL and SCRUM.
  • Improve your Communication: The only tool leads have is their communication skills. Helping you to master them, we will do a deeper dive into certain Communication-methods and principles.
  • The Basis: There are a lot of interesting and important Ideas out there. Some have to do with yourself, like “How you are successful”, some are helpful to know, e.g. “Cynefin Framework” or “Business Model Canvas”.
  • Improve your IT-Strategy: This is a NEW add-on in this year! In a small group you can develop, share, integrate and optimize your IT-Strategy.

3) Weekly Content

The content for both tracks, Leadership-Foundations and Organization-Foundations will be delivered to you as an exclusive Podcast.

It is as easy as all your other Podcasts: One year I will guide you through all the content of your Curriculum. Listen to it while you commute or do sports. Up to you. You are, in opposition to most other programs out there, not forced in front of a screen or in a room!

Consume, when it suits you best!

4) Weekly Leadership-Coaching

We will have a weekly video call, where you can share your thoughts and successes, discuss your issues or ask for help. This is an open discussion round for the community.

Those Coaching are your shortcut to immediate solutions! Don’t wait long, don’t burn more energy than needed.

I will be available myself, too and help where I can. The calls language is either English, if only German natives are present, or English.

5) Quarterly Live Meetings

There are four live-meetings planned! Those are 3-5h Meetings with particular topics and a practice part.

  • Apr.: Communication and Presentations on Stage
  • Jul.: Employee development and Team Goals Review
  • Oct.: Introduction, your Goals, Team goals process
  • Jan.: Team Goals

The meetings will start with some input from me, followed by interactive parts, where you can practice. Again: The conversational language will be English, as soon as we have international participants.

Sadly, I can’t really predict, when we will physically meet. The April meeting will be virtual for sure.

The meetings will be recorded and can be reviewed later. The program fee includes participation of the meetings, you only need to take your travel- and hotel cost.

6) Stars Community

To enable interaction with the other LeadershipStars, we have an instant messaging platform running.

A participant called it “The wisdom in my pocket”, as this is your fastest way to contact the other LeadershipStars.

7) Personal Coaching

Due to the high demand, there is a tarif including direct one to one access to me. I will help you individually, in private, to approach your issues or to just get a second opinion.

Components

Video Calls

You have the chance to attend weekly Leadership Coaching Calls to discuss the issues that move you.

Stars Community

You can approach your fellow LeadershipStars via an instant messaging platform, exclusively for the Stars Community.

Curriculum

Over the year you will receive the well-developed sequence of content of the Curriculum in an exclusive LeadershipStars-only Podcast.

Library

A permanently growing collection of important and valuable content is available, on top of the curriculum.
Obviously, the Curriculum Content is completely available there, too.

Mastermind

After a month we will offer Mastermind Groups within the Community.

Coaching

All participants of the LeadershipStars program can have direct access to me.

April 2021 – March 2022

You can use the program as much, as you like: Just consume the content as a great Podcast or scan the Library for what you need. But this leaves the main value unused: The interaction with your colleagues! The community and the Issues Calls where real killers in the last years!

How does it work?

We run the year like a Project:

  1. Understand your current situation. What’s already working, what wants to be changed?
  2. Management Methods. Learn new tools, get experiences on them, sharpen your knifes.
  3. Develop annual Goals. This is based on the analysis and helps you to develop a powerful goals-process.
  4. Employees. Prepare how to deal with them, how to assess their performance, how to develop.
  5. Execute your changes. This is about showing performance, not only talking about it.

Versions

Depending on your needs you can decide between two versions:

YoungStar

for fresh leaders

AllStar

for experienced leaders

IT-Star

for IT leaders

We are very proud to have participants since three years now from:

  • Accounting

Who is Olaf Kapinski?

I have been professional IT-Manager since 2001, before that I was leading in volunteer organizations (DLRG, Malteser) for ten years. In the beginning it was all “learning by doing it wrong”, I soon realized that leading is a learnable art.

At the latest with the start of the LEBEN-FÜHREN podcast in 2014 I switched to the trainer side, learned more and more about the methods behind it.

I like to pass on my experiences to the really good ones. To the people who want to lead in the right way. To the LeadershipStars.

“Everything is IT! Every successful company is and will be based on IT.”

And then I see how disconnected IT and business very often are. How some IT-Leaders still do what they did 10, sometimes 20 years ago. How they waste time and energy with thinking circles because they have no one to discuss the issues on eye-height.

I want to bring the IT-Leaders into the position they deserve within their company. Not a stupid cost-center anymore but the central pillar for the operations.

If you'd like a peek into the LeadershipStars Meeting

Here is a short excerpt of a past, virtual StarsMeeting. The topic is

“How to get decisions  out of your boss.”

This was the last hour of a StarsMeeting, and it is in German (as only Germans attended).

Q&A

  • Muss ich englisch sprechen? Nein, aber lesen und hören. Die Inhalte kommen  in Englisch, die Q&A Calls werden aber auf Deutsch laufen, wenn nur Deutsche anwesend sind.
  • How much time I need to plan? As much, as you like! The minimum should be one Podcast episode per week and then adapting it in the office. Drastically useful is the Issues Call every Tuesday evening for an hour.
  • I don’t lead yet but will be taking over an IT-Team in the near future. Is the Program valuable for me? Absolute! The earlier you learn the mechanics of IT-Teams and all those tools, the earlier you will be successful.
  • What, if I can’t attend all the time and have to skip a month? No problem, you will only miss the live calls. The main content will remain available online.
  • How does it continue after the year? The basic idea is to book the Leadership Foundations in the first year and Organization Foundations in the following year. In the Interview we will analyze, which content fits best to you.
