More often than not, issues arise at the workplace. These issues make the daily routine difficult, stressful, and unpleasant. Common problems at work include:
how to deal with a toxic or narcissistic boss?
how to avoid stress at the workplace?
how to stop workplace bullying?
how to improve teamwork?
how to resolve conflict at the workplace?
how to improve communication in the workplace?
These are only a few examples of the many issues that come up in organizational settings. CQ Net - Management skills for everyone! is here to help you deal with your work problems in the best possible manner. We combine practical experience with sound, scientific knowledge to equip you with the best short-term and long-term strategies. Your success and well-being are our priorities.
Why should you consider career counseling to help solve problems at work?
Individual career counseling is particularly useful for complex and particular situations that need a hands-on, unique solution. Sometimes, one-off actions are not enough and a longer strategy is needed to alleviate problems. Often, the situation is so particular that generic advice will not help. Our career counselors will take time to understand your values and interests, and support you along the way of improving your situation.
Our career counselors are here to focus on your needs and use their expertise to help you deal with your problem in a professional, goal-oriented way. Our one-on-one counseling sessions can help you increase your sense of self-worth, and teach you valuable problem-solving skills and strategies you can use in various professional situations.

How do the counseling sessions take place in detail?
Generally speaking, our counseling sessions usually cover four different phases. Such a structured approach is necessary to really understand the work problem and provide you the right support to cope with it and solve it. The four phases are:
Exploring situation and context
Developing management tools
Implementing management tools
Evaluating effects and re-adjustment
Understanding the work problem and your objective: Exploring situation and context
Everything starts with understanding the current situation you are in, the work problem itself, and the objective you want to achieve. Our management counselor will meet you in an online conference to discuss all relevant details to understand the work problem and your objective. This first phase also allows you and your management counselor to look at the work problem from a variety of different angles. As a consequence, new perspectives and insights about the work problem and what you want to achieve will come up. This is an important basis to move to phase two, which is about finding the right management tools to solve the work problem.
The management toolbox: Developing management tools
Once the current situation and your objective is clear, phase two starts: this is about developing the right management tools to solve your problem. Your management counselor will come up with a set of management tools with a proven track record of solving the same or similiar work problems. In a next step, your management counselor will help you to learn how to implement the management tool and customize it in a way such that it fits to your specific situation and work problem. Our collection of high quality mangement resources will be a supporting element in this second phase.
Getting things done: Implementing management tools
After phase two, you are perfectly equipped with the right management tools and knowledge to solve your work problem in a self-organized and self-responsible manner. Your management counselor won't leave you out in the rain. During the whole implementation phase, your management counselor will be available for you to answer questions, act as a soundboard, and give you tips in our online platform. Your counselor will be available for you throughout the whole process. Gradually you will experience how the management tools make a difference and move you towards the desired objective.
Looking back: Evaluating effects and re-adjustment
We at CQ Net - Management skills for everyone! focus very much on sustainable management counseling. This is why in phase four, you and your management counselor will evaluate the changes you achieved during implementation phase in detail and re-adjust the plan, tools and implementation if necessary.
How long will it take until I have solved the work problem?
The time you need to solve your work problem with the help of a management counselor strongly depends on the complexity of the issue. We made the experience that most common workplace problems can be solved in three months with professional help from a management counselor. We put together an exemplary time schedule that is based on the four management counseling phase introduced above. Please keep in mind that this schedule is just an example. Once we get a better understanding of your specific work problem, we will come up with a tailor-made time schedule and discuss it with you.
