The Good Worker helps connect the responsibilities within an organisation and provides support in actually taking responsibility. The word responsibility refers to having the capacity to respond appropriately.

Professionals in senior management are often expected to come up with a response in complex situations in a relatively short period of time. Complex matters like mergers, the introduction of new ICT systems, or a change of direction require a considered approach, with the ability to maintain an overview of all the underlying interconnected aspects. In these types of situations external support can help to guarantee quality of work.
Among other things, The Good Worker can support the directors in setting goals for improvement, making vision and policy visible, or connecting operational goals to those of the primary care processes. If necessary, we can attend (directors) consultation meetings for an agreed period of time or offer other forms of hands-on support.
If the situation is extremely complex, or if the required competencies are not sufficiently present within the organisation, then external management can offer the solution in the short term. The Good Worker offers interim management at the board level, general operational level, and with ICT. Unlike in the case of management support, with interim management we take over responsibilities temporarily.
Steering an organisation as upper management is a top sport. Performing at the highest level within the world of sport would be unthinkable without coaching. There is also a growing awareness in the world of management that coaching is necessary in order to achieve excellence. Adjustments – sometimes minimal – to approach, attitude and skills can lead to significant differences in experience and result. A good coach makes all the difference here.
André Kalden has been coaching international executives for 15 years now, both within and outside the field of healthcare. His methods are the result of his extensive international management experience, combined with the intensive spiritual teaching that he has received in India and Nepal over the last three decades. The coaching that André offers is concrete and focused on results. His opening questions are:
- What do you wish to achieve, cultivate and create?
- What do you wish to leave unchanged, protect and preserve?
- What influences would you like to stop, to call a halt to?
In combination with the application of the Mindful Professional Model™, this leads to a profound and, at the same time very practical, form of coaching.
