Initial situation Two director-major shareholders are getting stuck. Their visions of the company’s future strategy seem to be increasingly diverging. A shared direction seems unfeasible. They are about to sell their shares, which would lead to a substantial loss.
Approach LANZ starts with individual exploratory talks. Emphasis is placed on the process and the expectations back and forth. Subsequently LANZ maps out with everyone what is important to her or him. The joint meeting takes place after two preparatory meetings. Each director shares the topics which matter to her of him and, under supervision, discuss the backgrounds and views.
LANZ mirrors, sharpens, keeps asking questions. The parties are gradually taking over control of the conversation. The tension fades away.
Result Through structured and frank reflection, understanding is created. Those involved are again able to reconcile viewpoints and set out lines that both the group and the individual can agree on.
