Our services

Strategy Advisory

We understand your business. With our detailed expertise across a wide range of highly dynamic industries, you have a partner who talks your industry’s language. Rather than just recycling dated management concepts, we use our in-depth know-how to boost your competitive edge & advantage.

Organizational Development

We specialize in large-scale OD, particularly in organizational restructuring & development, e.g. after fusions, acquisitions or in trending temporary inter-disciplinary co-operations. To ensure success, we combine the very latest scientific models with state-of-art methods & best practice know-how, tailored to your individual industry.

Executive Sparring

In time-critical, strategically precarious, risky situations, it’s good to have an experienced sparring partner at your side. When times get rough, most executives feel terribly left alone. It’s just natural they’ll appreciate pro-active, hands-on guidance. As such, we can operate in the background or actively lead projects – or both.

Additional services

There’s more we can do for you.

Global Coverage

Wherever you are, we’re there too. Based in the heart of Europe, we have excellent, direct access to any means of transport. This enables us to quickly help right then when you need it and right there where it’s required. Globally.

Leadership Coaching

Other than in leadership training, where added knowledge comes from us (and might fade away when we’re gone), coaching effectively helps digging out your very own submerged talents & know-how. This way, you’ll achieve results with unparalleled sustainable effects as they are, carefully accompanied by us, worked out by yourself.

Free Coffee

Beyond business, people at EMBRACE enjoy good coffee. Not just any coffee, of course. We indulge ourselves with some of the finest sorts of coffee, enjoying it in its purest form – or with far too much cream. And since we’re so fond of it, we’d like to share our passion with you: drop us a line & we’ll send you an invitation to have coffee with our CEO.

What our clients say

I happily recommend Thomas for any large-scale organizational change management assignment based on his long-standing experience with intra-organizational psychological dynamics of large, internationally distributed teams, his way to drive results, his hands-on attitude and his excellent troubleshooting skills, bringing together people who would otherwise be unwilling to cooperate.

Juliana Idrobo Piquero Senior PM / Global Blue

Thomas is a highly energetic productive maker who can recognize the opportunities of any given situation, creating from it the best possible result. He excels in assessing, developing and challenging personalities. His diverse experience is an asset to any project.

Martin Forisch System Architect / Global Blue

What helped us most is that he’s more than able to see the big picture, easily recognize complex relationships and thus provide for sound solutions for problems of any kind as a highly committed, competent troubleshooter.

Vojkan Radak System Architect / IBM

By introducing decidedly disruptive innovation at our institute, including the radical shortening of our time expenditure, our turnaround times were reduced by 80%, helping us form a very clear competitive advantage – an integral part of our rigorous digital transformation.

Nada Endres CEO / TSNE

I would warmly recommend Thomas to any business facing major situations of change. Above and beyond, it has been a pleasant experience to have such a dedicated expert with us who managed to surprise us with his knowledge.

Dragan Nenadović CEO / Galenika Fitofarmacija

What stood out in Thomas aside of his particular skills, was his attitude and demeanor. Being insightful, compassionate, broad minded, diligent and practical, he puts forward his best effort into whatever project or assignment.

Visakh Pillai As. General Manager / Gulf Petrochem Group
Quickly and efficiently helps integrate and get to the same table subject matter experts of all fields who would hardly find common grounds to exchange internal knowledge without Thomas’ compelling, persuasive influence.

Why change if everything’s perfectly alright.

A classic statement the majority of -unconsciously misinformed- managers comes up with when confronted with change. Most prone to this effect: people in leading positions with little to no grounding, i.e. lack of situational reflectiveness and market awareness, causing a toxic working environment based on internal competition, mobbing and fear of job loss. It's an unfortunate yet typical cycle: managers in such settings won't receive objective, fact-based information on the state of their business from yes-men fearing to be replaced. As a consequence, they can't see any need to responding to changes on the market, their business environment and disruptive changes linked to their own industry. Inevitably, this leads to wrong strategic decisions not corresponding to actual strategic requirements towards market, competition, staff, resources and, of course, stakeholders. And this, ultimately, changes everything. This is how even the strongest organization can be hazarded from within. That's why change is a necessity.

  • No one induces change "for fun". It's a necessity to stay competitive.
  • Most organizations deal with change. Those which don't quickly fall back.
  • Change is the only way to continuously balance & stabilize organizations.

To do so, we use an "economedic" approach, allowing us to look at organizations as what they really are: a living organism made of people. It's simple: When you feel sick, you call a physician.

Why change?

Why change? Change doesn’t need to be radical. Sometimes it has to, but most of times, it’s smarter to keep it moderate and incremental. No change, on the contrary, will inevitably lead to radical consequences and dramatic (if not traumatic) results. – An avoidable scenario.   Having said that (and from a purely theoretical point of […]
