C-Level Interim Manager

More than one perspective: the C-Level Interim Manager

The range of tasks at the C-level is complex and demands that the strategic orientation of the company as well as that of management tasks, are always kept in mind when making daily decisions. In order to be able to convincingly fill these important interfaces, extensive recruitment processes are often necessary. However, it is imperative that companies do not to leave vacant C-level positions unfilled. The assignment of a qualified interim manager creates the necessary scope for personnel recruitment and at the same time, offers reliable professional competence to advance the company in a target-oriented manner even in times of a job vacancy.

Communicative. Strategic. Valuable.

Interim Managers identify with the strategic goals of the company in their work processes and implement all the measures necessary to achieve them in the day-to-day business of the C-level. In doing so, they plan how their area can support the company´s vision. They gain a comprehensive overview, define the required range of tasks, move projects forward and find solutions to existing obstacles.

Among the imperative core competencies of the Interim Manager are communication, leadership and team building. It is essential to get all employees excited about the future of a company – to communicate the vision and describe the path to get there. Employees should know their “why”, because this is the only way to develop values and identification, which are the very basis for fostering the drive of a successful company.

Solution-oriented Mindset

It is equally important to guide employees through changes, to avoid pitfalls and to eliminate disruptions. Interim Managers possess a stable, solution-oriented mindset and are able to pass this basic attitude on to others in order to anticipate negative effects. In addition to their strong resilience skills, they possess extensive knowledge of leading conversations – both one-on-one and in groups.

From a professional point of view, and thanks to their relevant studies and the skills they have acquired over many years, they are able to familiarize themselves with their area of expertise in the shortest possible time, and they are able to move directly into the implementation phase. This ability to become active in the shortest possible time means that the company does not lose valuable time. Regular day-to-day business does not stagnate and the generation of added value is not impaired during the search for a suitable C-level manager.

It therefore clearly pays off for companies to rely on an interim solution for vacancies at the C-level in order to remain fully competitive in the market.
