Story
Tagline
A Popular Source of Inspiration for Leaders all over the World.
Introduction
LeadershipWatch is founded by HRS Business Transformation Services.

We support our clients globally with a variety of services based on a strong expertise and track record in three key domains: Leading Complex Change, Cross-Cultural Leadership, and Post-Merger Integration.

What we deeply care about:

-  Improving the quality of collaboration across functions, departments and divisions.  We believe that more effective collaboration between people is the key to turning strategy into sustained and valuable results

 -  Improving the quality of collaboration across cultures, with a strong focus on teams where Westerners (United States, Europe) work together with people from the East (India, China, Japan, ...)

-  Making the complex practical and manageable

So if you find yourself leading complex projects, and/or if you work with people born and raised in cultures you are less familiar with, this page is for you.

We hope you like it.

LeadershipWatch combines our experience acquired over the past 25 years with brand new developments and insights affecting business leaders. LeadershipWatch articles are written by Aad Boot and Hanneke Siebelink.
