A strong leadership duo
In (generational) transition
Since 2022 we have established a dual leadership at Strasser & Strasser Unternehmensberatung AG. Founder Dr. Eva Strasser has brought her niece Marlene Strasser onto the board as her future successor and representative of Generation Y. While Eva Strasser continues to support top management in transformation processes, Marlene Strasser develops formats for employees without hierarchical management responsibility. This strong board duo allows us to bring different perspectives to the table. All organizational levels are activated to drive change forward quickly and efficiently.
At Strasser & Strasser, we share six values that guide our teamwork and collaboration with our clients. Our customers say we are special, and that makes us proud.
We love what we do. Our work is much more than a job, a customer much more than an order. For us, it's about the cause and about the people. We rejoice together in successes and give our all in times of crisis. We inspire ourselves and our customers.
Diversity is not just a "nice to have" for us, but an absolute must. This is the only way we can offer our customers innovative, custom-fit and tailor-made solutions. We are Inter-Generational, Cross-Gender, Inter-National and Cross-Functional!
As a family business, we see ourselves as one big family. The company is part of family life. This inclusive model allows us to go the extra mile for our customers and enjoy it together.
Transformation processes are systemically complex. We take the emotions of those involved seriously and weigh all possible effects. In the process, we quickly get to know new cultures in their depth and complexity. As a result, executives avoid risks through our consulting and take advantage of opportunities in the transformation.
Change processes in today's complex and volatile world need pioneering spirit and powerful visions. We have the courage to develop fast and pragmatic solutions. We know quickly when to boldly take new steps and when it is worth pausing and reconsidering.
Change processes can be of an almost unbearable severity. For us, humor, fun and joy are more than just a "coping strategy"; in times of crisis and transformation, they are essential for survival. We live and promote this both in our work with our clients and in our own team.
»I'm still euphoric about how much fire, inspiration and energy came from this work.«

Our theoretical framework
Awareness, activation, acceleration
AWARENESS: What is at the heart of the upcoming change project? Where coulb be objectives, opportunities and challenges? Without a shared understanding of how the change affects the thinking, the feelings and the actions of all potential stakeholders, no energy is generated. The change process loses power and fizzels out. "Shared awareness" is indispensable for the sustainable success of change. ACTIVATION:Effective solutions are needed for transformations to succeed. Sustainability arises when these are developed and supported not only by executives, but by many people in the organization. We offer programs that enable employees and managers to produce ideas courageously, learn together during the implementation, and network sustainably. ACCELERATION: When awareness arises and activation succeeds, change is accelerated. Momentum is created through self-organization and growth through dynamism. while employees have organized themselves, they have learned to network and to solve problems more quickly together and with others. Leadership encourages, supports and enables this learning process.
