A remote control is an electronic device, most commonly used for operating a television wirelessly from a distance. Every remote team manager, and business men who work in a close relationship with partners from different countries, dream to have similar remote control for their team sitting in different parts of the world.
This is where everything starts going wrong! You don’t need a remote control device – you rather need a remote support set for this. This means that the manager will himself have the right buttons like “knowledge, tools and techniques” to adjust to various settings i.e “communication, technology, processes and cultural differences within his team” in order to manage, lead and empower his remote team effectively.
This is what our unique program-package is about.
We believe that intercultural competence should be understood as part of knowledge management and company-specific tacit knowledge. It should be understood as a tool of strategic thinking and planning, as a source of competitive advantage and added value that builds on the benefits of diverse approaches. The development of these skills and competences should be started as early as possible to establish this culture within the organization, to create the “Remote Support” tool. The program includes development elements for both the leaders and the employees of multicultural teams customized for their specific conditions and needs. The most interesting part of the package is that it was created in a multicultural environment by a remote team. Throughout its development, we had an opportunity to ourselves to try and test all the concepts, tools and techniques that are incorporated in this program.

"We started our cooperation with DEVELOR in 2012 by implementing the Insights Discovery methodology in adidas Slovakia as part of the Franchise & Marketing team support project, which at that time was is a phase of transformation. In the following years our cooperation has gradually extended and the Insights Discovery typology has become part of our internal culture. During 3 years almost 70 employees of the region adidas Group CE East (SK, CZ, HU, PL) from different divisions - from back office to field sales - had participated in the Insights typology based programs. What we deem the greatest benefit is that we are all able to mutually identify gaps in communication and hence improve the speed and effectiveness of both individual and customer related interactions.
On behalf of adidas Group we can only recommend utilization of Insights Discovery and DEVELOR consultants to companies facing similar challenges - complexity of cooperation, integration of generation Y employees... etc. Not only that the tool is easily applicable on the job, but at the same time DEVELOR brings further insights how to make things better."Martina Kovácová, HR Manager - adidas Slovakia
"We have been working with the Develor company since 2010. The aim of establishing mutual co-operation was to give significant support to Confal’s operational responsiveness, by, among other things, changing the system of employee performance motivation. As part of the project’s realization Develor trainers and consultants primarily focused on redesigning the reward system, changes in organizational structure, which also took in altering competences and job responsibilities, and proposed new standards in project management. With regard to the implementation of these changes, it was necessary to illustratively gauge what effect the project has on the running of the firm, particularly in the area of teamwork. Develor consultants proposed Team sociomapping, which uses an attractive map, as an effective gauge for individuals from team management to interpret, with the help of consultants, the team’s unity, frequency and quality of communication and existing mutual interaction. A deeper analysis of the map allowed for the subsequent evaluation of the effect of the realized changes during the duration of the project and, moreover, to identify areas for necessary further changes and improvement. All participants accepted the results and the team sociomapping itself positively and openly. Many things which until then we had not been able to define nor initiate mutual exchanges of opinions upon, we could constructively discuss thanks to our team’s illustrative maps. We consider the selected method to be very good and in the future plan to undertake such sociomapping again."Michal Skriecka, Business and Finance Manager - Confal
