Владимир Коломоец об управлении бизнесом и грамотном подборе высшего менеджмента, Leadership Journey - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Киев, Украина – Вы часто встречали компании с полным набором топов — с коммерческим, финансовым и исполнительным директором? Чтобы на каждый поток по бизнес-лидеру. Собственнику остается только лишь отслеживать, как меняется прибыль его компании, цвет напитка в бокале и высота океанской волны за окном.

Но, в большинстве случаев, все это лишь верхушка айсберга, а в его основании ничего не меняется. Владелец приглашает высший менеджмент, как экспертов по управлению, но, на самом деле, всеми, даже самыми незначительными движениями компании, управляет он сам. Лично.

Почему так происходит и к чему это приводит Leadership Journey узнал у Владимира Коломойца, руководителя украинского офиса компании Pedersen&Partners.
