Management Team & Organisation Scan

This organisation scan is a zero measurement of the leadership, team dynamics and organisational structure within your company, particularly those in key leadership and management roles. The final report identifies the teams strenghts, blind spots, optimal organisational model, opportunities to leverage as well as insights into areas where the team may benefit from team and leadership development. The proces includes: intertakes, interviews, a kick off session and accelerator session.


Acceleration Session

During these sessions we meet with the investor, founder and management team to make the transition towards the next phase of growth. We look back at the earlier management scan to see if the right steps are being taken on the human capital action points. We look back on the past period, identify challenges and successes to align the strategy, team and leadership for the future. We evaluate the existing quality of the relationship between the investment team and the management team, establishing a foundation of trust to optimize connection and cooperation between the investment team and theur portfolio companies. We also support founders and leaders in reflecting on their own role and responsibilities.


Creating High Performing Teams

During periods of rapid company growth, both individual leaders and the management team as a whole must undergo development to to ensure they can keep pace with the changes. We assist leaders & teams to reach their goals, while creating an environment that cultivates long-term excellence and success. During our High Performing Team sessions we guide teams & leaders to create self awareness, align around a common purpose, establish inspiring spirit and vision, define clear roles, commit to team accountability, make powerful choices and take affirmative action. We do this through offsite facilitation, leadership development programs and one on one coaching. We also assist by conflict resolution or team stagnation.


Founder Succession Planning

We guide portfolio companies by identifying and developing the individuals who will take on key roles in the company, ensuring a smooth transition during succession. We sit together with the CEO or investor, to help identify the key qualities required from the leadership of the future, and sit along with interviews when needed. The goal is to secure the long-term continuity and success of the organisation, maintain its core values and vision, and facilitate a seamless transfer of leadership and decision-making responsibilities.


Buy & Build Team Advisory

We provide guidance for PE / VC firms by integrating multiple operating companies in a buy & build phase. This includes human capital due diligence, post-acquisition integration, and value creation, helping your firm execute its buy-and-build strategy successfully. During this phase, taking the team along in communication and building a team that can execute on the future strategy are crucial aspects for a succesful integration.


Investment Team Advisory

We support Investment Teams to professionalize the way they work together with their Management Teams. Through our work with many different investment professionals and investment firms, we can advise investment teams on what the essential steps are to professionalize their way of working. We make this explicit by doing workshops and session with your investment team and discussing live case studies. All with the goal to improve connection and cooperation with management teams.


Supervisory Board Review

During this review we will create an open and constructive dialogue to ensure the board is fulfilling its oversight responsibilities and strategic roles. It involves an analysis of the board's composition, decision-making processes, and alignment with the organization's goals and culture, with the aim of identifying areas for improvement and creating aligned relationships.

What our clients say about us

Fenix Leadership assists the Executive Board of Yource in achieving goals by empowering our team members. Over the past few years, we have undergone a transition to focus even more on essentials.
Robin Jansen
Group CEO Yource
Fenix supported us in several management assessments. They provide additional insights on individual team members, team dynamics and development opportunities. Fenix goes beyond the mere analysis and makes suggestions on how to deal with potential challenges within the team. The combination of extensive experience in the field and an open mindset makes Fenix a valuable partner for SHS. SHS is one of the leading healthcare investors in Europe committed to Building European Healthcare Champions.
David Wehner
Senior Investment Manager
Fenix leadership has hugely helped our management team transition from a group of individuals to a team. They have also helped us to identify our collective weak spots and to either develop there or to find new team members to strengthen our team in those areas. In both team and individual coaching settings, the Fenix team knows exactly the right, sometimes difficult, questions to ask, and by knowing us both as individuals and as a team well, always helps us to find new insights to help us move forward on complex issues.
Simon Bushell
Founder and CEO Sympower
Fenix has greatly helped us as the Management Team of Euramax to come closer together and gain more awareness and insight into our own leadership. This has resulted in greater cohesion within the MT and better decisions regarding the strategic transformation that Euramax is currently undergoing. I would wholeheartedly recommend Fenix to any MT with the ambition to elevate their own leadership to a higher level.
Harmen Kruijt
CEO Euramax (Parcom)
We have received tremendous support from Fenix to further develop in the areas of management assessment, team building, and optimizing collaboration between the deal team and management. Fenix is not only a sharp sparring partner but also pays attention to the personal development of the people on our team. The experience and personal approach make us confident in recommending Fenix to any ambitious investor looking to further develop.
Thijs Friederich
Head Direct Investments, Rabobank
Bart Jan and Kasper have extensive experience in quickly grasping everything related to team dynamics, exposing the strengths and weaknesses of teams very clearly, and providing suggestions on how to deal with them. They do this in a pleasant and constructive manner. In (early-stage) investments, people and team dynamics are of great importance. Fenix is an important partner for us to make better investment decisions and get the best out of people.
Helmer Schukken
Managing Partner Rubio
Fenix Leadership supported our management team during our exit process to a new owner. The four of us were responsible for running the business and selling the company, which sometimes felt like having two jobs at once. With Fenix, we extensively discussed how to work together best under pressure and were enabled to have important conversations about our collaboration during and after the exit. This strengthened our connection, helping us smoothly navigate the sales process and resulting in a wonderful new owner.

CEO Quoratio Groep (Parcom)
