CASE©: a New Approach to Leadership
Every day, every moment, people in charge of running a business or leading a team have to make decisions. Every decision involves the reconciliation of different Objectives, Priorities and Needs. This is the Art of Leadership, and the CASE© method is here to help
Objectives are the reason for the organization’s existence. Too often they get overlooked due to the frantic day-to -day management. It is paramount that they remain well clear and that everyone on the organization know, understand and share them. They are achieved according to priorities and satisfy the stakeholders’ needs.
Since resources are limited, priority choices have to be made when pursuing the objectives and satisfying the needs of stakeholders. The various components of an organization can perceive different priorities according to different moments and needs. It is essential that priorities are selected in a way that is shared, effective and that everybody understands that the ultimate goal is the best overall interest.
Satisfying some of those of its stakeholders is the final aim of the objectives of an organization, which exists only for that purpose. Not everybody, though, has the same perception of his/her own needs and of those of others. Often there is confusion about priorities. Here’s why the leadership of the organization must be aware of the various perceptions and reconcile them, keeping the focus of its stakeholders firmly on the common goals, while being ready, if needed, to adjust them.
Said about me or The CASE©
New Business Global Manager, Germany: We were wondering where was the future of our business: here it is. In the project developed for us by Federico the future of our business is clearly indicated.
Civil Society Leader, Kenya: above everything else, I am grateful for the thoughtfulness with which he ensured we all gained from the classes, always willing to answer questions and respond to whatever concerns and challenges there were. He didn’t just teach us, he believed in what he taught and lived it. That in itself was the greatest lesson.
CMO, Italy/Germany: Federico is a great example of innovative and pragmatic person. He is very competent and it is very easy to establish with him a good relationship, almost immediately. He respect time plans and it is easy to work with him. He is a good professional, and a very pleasant person.
psychologist and actress, Uk, Italy: Working with him and his team was a great experience. Federico is extremely professional and pays attention to every detail. He’s also great at making everyone involved feel at easy by creating a fun work environment. I’d be happy to work with him again should the chance arise.
Professional Association Chair: Balance, vision and the capacity to deal with problems in a positive way, looking at conflicts as an opportunity to grow and express respect for differences are Federico’s distinguishing traits.
leadership coach, trainer, Kenya: Federico is a great trainer/ facilitator, who is very passionate about transformative leadership and communication.
Entrepreneurs, Italy: Federico has been like a dentist working on an aching tooth without anesthesia: fastidious and painful, because he touched the exposed nerve that we pretended not to be there, while soothing the pain with lots of painkillers. He taught us to be transparent and that that world of us, finally, could be changed. What we are today is partly thanks to him.
MEP, Brussels: high professionalism and capacity to deliver a strictly tailored advisory, with measurable outcomes. Having him by one’s side permits to focus on the most important steps and possibly to make others emerge that were underestimated. All this accompanied by a vast culture and life experience from which to pick with plenty.
Entrepreneur, Italy: Federico is an excellent listener and very competent person. With his help you can dig into yourself deeply, in order to find solutions for your emotional life and benefit your business and relationships.
Tallinn TTU Professor, Estonia: his relaxed and pleasant way of living is contagious for people around him. Yes, it’s really a pleasure to know Federico and to have the chance to work with him. Independently from the results that you can get, it’s anyway an enrichment, a time well spent.
work psychologist, coach, Italy: I was positively impressed by his wide culture and curiosity about exploring new territories. He is able to link the wisdom of past experiences (i.e., his knowledge of the perspective of Adriano Olivetti is considerable) and the strive for innovation. Federico is truly, and concretely, committed to work in the direction of building practices in organizations that allow people to work and live well.
MD, University hospital, Italy: our group, under guidance and with advice from Federico, learned slowly to open up, found new ways and tools to relate each one with him or herself and with the others. I had started with the idea to learn to “manage” my emotions and during the training understood that, instead, I should try to welcome them. Thank you Federico!
CEO, Italy: I suggest you try Federico’s trainings. You will see that time is passing too fast, and you’ll come out enriched both on a professional and human dimension.
dirigente d’azienda, Italy: I was looking for a therapist but I found much more: a friend who showed me the tools and taught me, with patience, how to become myself’s Master. I’ll be forever grateful to him for this.
Entrepreneur, France: Federico is capable to suscitate new reflection lines that he is able to keep on the tracks of practicality. He invites us to dare innovative decisions, within a framework of respect for human relations that he keeps at the center of the Company’s life, to pursue and achieve the highest success.
Entrepreneur, Italy: Federico has an approach to business and to life based on Nonviolence that can greatly help to increase the efficiency and productivity of an organisation, raise the levels of health, prosperity and happiness, increase customer satisfaction, provide a new perspective and developments, for people as well as companies.
CFO, Italy: I can safely say that Federico is one of the most eclectic people I have ever known, with a large cleverness and with the extraordinary ability to “look beyond”, imagining a different world with a strong commitment to make it happen.
MD, University hospital, Italy: the opportunity to meet Federico and attend his training has been for me a fantastic revelation. His extremely high professionalism, competence and brilliant intelligence are appeasing.
Data Scientist, Switzerland: Federico provides the participants of his very interactive courses with new and fresh perspectives on nonviolent communication and conflict transformation. He has re-elaborated important concepts and techniques developed by great psychologists, like Paul Watzlawick and Marshall B. Rosenberg, and guides you to their application in everyday-life situation. Highly recommended.
Visual Merchandiser, Spain: Federico is not only very professional about his job, he is someone that can combine his professional skills with a profound humanity, getting the best results…… highly recommended.
grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, USA: Federico is a true expert of my grandfather’s Nonviolence and his work brings to people an interesting interpretation. I wholeheartedly recommend him.
As an outcome of the CASE© training I took with him, I realize that my work, by unity of time, has a 20% higher outcome for my hospital
University professor, USA: I think I was among the first to devour his very interesting book (Co-responsibility, 2010). It has been enlightening for the many analogies and easy to understand examples. Hope I am doing my share of the Co-responsibility in this life. Tanks for such a huge work.
A rare talent that of teaching and transmitting the tools that allow a person to see the positive side of every situation, to start from there and deal with tensions, conflicts and what looks beyond remedy. Federico is a worthy master in this and the CASE© is absolutely fantastic.
architect, UK: Federico is an excellent example of integrity: he lives in everyday’s life what he has learned and mastered through years of experience. Therefore he’s an ideal consultant and highly trustable professional.
The analysis of communication patterns and the conflict managing techniques that he taught me look fundamental for effective teamwork. This can facilitate enormously the relationship with patients too, bringing to an effective use of the available time, thus, finally, to a better performance.
His proposals and the programs that he has permitted us to develop will have a positive influence on our Company for at least the next ten years
