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 helpt de Executive Board van Yource met het behalen van doelen door onze teamleden in hun kracht te zetten. De afgelopen jaren zijn wij een transitie doorgegaan, zodat we nog meer focus hebben op hoofdzaken.
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 heeft ons als MT van Euramax enorm geholpen om dichter bij elkaar te komen en meer bewustzijn en inzicht te krijgen in ons eigen leiderschap. Dit heeft geresulteerd in meer verbondenheid binnen het MT en betere beslissingen met betrekking tot de strategische transformatie waarin Euramax zich momenteel bevindt. Ik zou Fenix dan ook van harte aanbevelen aan eenieder MT met de ambitie om het eigen leiderschap naar een hoger niveau te brengen.
Harmen Kruijt
CEO Euramax (Parcom)
Wij hebben enorm veel steun gehad van Fenix om ons verder te ontwikkelen op het gebied van management assessment, teambuilding en het optimaliseren van de samenwerking tussen deal team en management. Fenix is niet alleen een scherpe sparringpartner maar heeft ook oog voor de persoonlijke ontwikkeling van de mensen uit ons team. De ervaring en persoonlijke aanpak maakt dat we Fenix kunnen aanbevelen voor iedere ambitieuze investeerder die zich verder wil ontwikkelen
Thijs Friederich
Head Direct Investments, Rabobank
Bart Jan en Kasper hebben uitgebreide ervaring om alles dat met team dynamiek te maken heeft in korte tijd goed te doorgronden en de sterke en zwakkere kanten van teams heel helder bloot te leggen en met suggesties te komen hoe hier mee om te gaan. Ze doen dat op een plezierige en constructieve manier. Bij (vroege fase) investeringen zijn mensen en team dynamiek van groot belang. Fenix is een belangrijke partner voor ons om betere investeringsbeslissingen te nemen en het beste uit mensen te halen.
Helmer Schukken
Managing Partner Rubio
Fenix Leadership heeft ons als directie team ondersteund tijdens ons exit proces naar een nieuwe eigenaar. Met z’n vieren waren we verantwoordelijk voor het runnen van de business en het verkopen van de onderneming. Dat voelt zo nu en dan als twee banen tegelijkertijd. Met Fenix hebben we uitvoerig besproken hoe we onder druk het beste met elkaar konden samenwerken en werden we in staat gesteld om de belangrijke gesprekken te voeren over onze samenwerking tijdens en na de exit. De onderlinge verbinding werd daardoor versterkt, mede waardoor we soepel door het verkoop proces hebben kunnen gaan, met een mooie nieuwe eigenaar tot gevolg.
