The Danish Veterinary & Food Administration
Professionalising the exercise of authority
In 2012, 25 managers and 350 inspectors from the Food Control division in The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration (DVFA) joined the competence development programme, “Professionalising the exercise of public authority”, designed in close collaboration with DVFA’s HR division. Two years later, impact surveys document stronger relational competences among inspectors, greater job satisfaction and better client relations.
To engage people in effective collaboration, you need to invest in building a strong team. What you get in return is staff satisfaction and a better bottom line.
One of the real and still hidden resources of your organisation is the level of energy and engagement that people gain and provide – both at work and in their private life. The key is understanding how effective personal energy management will help us achieve higher performance and life quality.
Leadership is the single most important factor when it comes to improving quality and increasing productivity in any organisation.
Dynamic and complex organisations need leaders who can interpret current developments, make the right decisions and define the way forward.
Values and leadership principles
Values are key to implementing the strategy. But to define a value platform with an extra twist – and prepare the ground for successful implementation – you must ensure broad involvement of staff in the process.
During change initiatives, it is important for organisations to recognise that their managers are facing different challenges depending on their individual experience and abilities. Change coaching gives managers the individual support they need.
