OQM® - Organic Quality Management Consulting, a change management tool


A time and cost effective questionnaire that is part of a solution oriented holistic measurement and change tool with on-going consultation throughout the process.

Organic quality management (OQM®) measures and develops the health and quality of your organization – What makes oqm®  unique is its holistic anonymous survey assessment 

of your organization according to the following three dimensions: structural (“Organization"), human (“Organism") and values  (“Spirit").

 

The goal of OQM® is to help an organization develop an environment which is more satisfying for its workers and do greater justice to its comm ission. To achieve this, oqm® begins by taking bearings of  the organization’s current  position from an holistic perspective.

The areas of leadership, co-workers, personal spirituality, structures, values, company culture, authenticity, team-work and relationships are all assessed. Use is made of a survey involving a questionnaire which has been developed according to scientifically verifiable criteria. During this process, information on “external factors“ such as the professionalism of teams and inner convictions is compiled  and interlinked.

OQM®  supports executives to

  • accurately measure the health and quality of  their teams, divisions and whole organizations
  • refine vision, goals and strategies
  • revisit essential values
  • focus resources appropriately
  • produce lasting health and fruit
  • lead  their organization holistically using the three dimensions

Helping Companies find where the sticky issues are and helping them find the solutions is what OQM is about. Orga­niza­ti­ons and com­pa­nies are com­plex sys­tems. OQM® helps you main­tain an over­view and find the grea­test lever­age for change, by con­cen­tra­tion on and reduc­tion to strengths and weak­nes­ses revea­led by twenty years of research in this survey.

Teamwork

Teamwork and partnership are the cornerstones of what I do. My first partnership is with my client(s).  I enjoy creating communities of empowered individuals who can unleash their talent and enjoy themselves in the process.  All adults looking for career or work oriented coaching are welcome.


I won’t sell you what you don’t need

I believe that people are more likely to keep working with you in the future if you have a relationship built on trust and honesty. I tell my potential clients up front if I can’t do what they want or if I am not the best person for the job. I will also try to stop clients from spending money on our services that are unlikely to benefit them.


I am curious 

I like asking lots of questions. I am curious about my clients and what they need. I like to understand our clients’ situations and ask provocative questions that make my clients think more deeply about what they really want. By doing this, I increase the chances that i will be able to provide effective, targeted help.


I love developing our clients

I like helping our clients to reach their full potential. My aim is to enable people to solve their own problems effectively. I love to help our clients to transform in order to move on.


I like to stretch myself

I enjoy using my skills and what I know in creative and innovative ways. I like to provide flexibility in the services I deliver and I am happy to adapt what I do to the specific needs of my clients. This often involves quick thinking and quick learning. That’s why my clients often ask me to work on issues that are a bit outside my normal area; they know I am flexible and creative.


I'm not just in it for the money

I strive to create tangible value for both the client and myself. I welcome the opportunity to discuss ways in which I can create mutual benefit for the client and our business.


Diversity and the Individual

Because I am trained and sensitive to the individual needs of my clients, I can coach in many different kinds of venues with many kinds of people.  My belief in the value of the human being is a foundation for my coaching practice.

An Example:

Here is an example. A picturesque holiday beauty spot wants to offer its guests something special so it organizes entertainment features such as folk festivals, stunt shows, travelling circuses, etc, throughout the high season. In the short term this program proves attractive to the guests, but it also incurs considerable noise and an increase in traffic. In the course of time, the holidaymakers decide in favour of other, more peaceful holiday destinations, because the resort has become too busy and  overcrowded.

 

The example alerts us to organic principles which can be learned from nature and applied to the way  we run  organizations.  It is these that OQM takes into account.

 

A number of situations may now be springing to your mind where solutions which appeared to be a good idea in the first place did not always bring about the desired result  in the end, since they were contrary to the nature of the issue or people concerned. OQM helps to avoid these rash decisions which  are ill-suited to the given  situation.
