Giramar Consulting was founded in January 2017, but our history goes back more than 30 years.
During these years, we have operated under a number of different brands. A large portion of our consulting experience was amassed through more than 15 years as senior consultants and owners of The Performance Group (TPG) in Oslo, Norway. In 2013, TPG was acquired by Rambøll Management Consulting, and in 2017 we chose to establish Giramar Consulting as an independent consultancy firm.
The core has been the same throughout the entire journey: Being leading experts in the field of Strategy Development, Team- and Leadership Development and Organisational Change. Over the years we have gained extensive experience through a broad spectrum of client projects in industries like Banking and Finance, Insurance, Energy, Shipping, Engineering, Health and IT. Most of our current clients are based in Northern Europe, and we draw upon a vast network of internationally experienced colleagues.
WHO WE ARE
We believe in the value of exposure and personal experience. Hence, all of our consultants have varied backgrounds with first-hand experience from both line management and consultancy. We work closely with our clients as their trusted process facilitators, advisers, coaches and mentors. In addition to our own team, we have an extended professional network in all of Europe through IMCN and our Associated Partners.
HOW WE WORK
Based on the many years of working in the field of team and leadership development, we have learnt that there are a few key success factors to be taken into account. A successful development program ought to have the following characteristics:
Research based: Hone in on the factors especially relevant to achieve increased efficacy to ensure a targeted and focused development process
Two foci: Business and Process: Development must always be guided by the business agenda in order for the Leadership Team to grow as a team and at the same time address key strategic issues for the company
Secured transfer from good plans to new praxis – training: Be concrete and to-the-point and ensure a common understanding of what plans translate to actual behaviour. A necessary basis for the most important development step: Trying it and doing it!
Individual follow-up: Continuous personal and close follow-up with expressed commitment to change is essential in order to secure sustainable change and increased value-added contributions from the team: new praxis
