BLUF ... Looking for advice based on experience implementing feedback, one-on-one's, and coaching in a Euro-environment. My concerns are *effectively* navigating the cultural barriers and lack of existing results-based performance feedback.
Reason ... I will be relocating to Belgium shortly to take an executive position with my company. I will be managing operations in the US and in Belgium. I have been running the US operations for the past 9 months and have implemented most of the MT basics. My successor will continue in this fashion with help from his recent experience at the MT Seminar in Dallas -- thanks M&M!
My perceptions of the challenges that lie in wait are due to the conflict-averse nature of the existing management, the lack of *any* meaningful performance feedback to managers and directs, and the willingness of accepting a foreigner -- especially an Ami -- to make needed changes.
- What advice / modifications on rollout of the 'trinity'?
- Anyone in Europe as an expat faced these challenges? Comments?
- How to make coaching stick in an environment where there are governmental restrictions on removing personnel for performance? (Mark ... start swinging at me!)
Thanks in advance,
- Dave aka xcelerator
