Inspirational leadership is a critical success factor for Caverion to succeed at strategy execution. In a constant change, it is very important to be clear with manager’s role and responsibilities, to be clear with own goals and ensure team success. Caverion’s leadership principles guide all our leaders as they lead our people and shape our strategy, culture and organization. They describe how leadership should be interpreted and perceived. Every year every leader should take the opportunity to use these principles to examine their leadership qualities and improve their own leadership skills.
Lead yourself creates a foundation for leadership. This means that we act as a role model in everything we do, such as how we demonstrate high ethical and moral standards, communicate openly and honestly and respect other people. Lead business is crucial part of leadership considering planning, proactive information sharing and continuous quality and cost-consciousness in everything we do. Every leader succeed only through own people. When leading people it is important to drive individual strengths and empower people to work together to reach their goals and collaborate actively within Caverion.
Leadership skills are actively developed

In 2017, the Caverion wide Leadership Safari program continued to roll out in Finland and Industrial Solutions divisions. In addition we organised several other local leadership development programs during the year in different divisions. The themes of these programs include, for instance, the role and responsibilities of a line manager, leading performance and competence development, basic employment and occupational safety matters, management communications and coaching skills.
For Caverion’s key executives we arrange regular Caverion Leader Forum events. These events concentrate on the strategy and the strategic focus areas of our business and operations as well as on sharing knowledge and group-wide networking. In 2017 we organized one Leader Forum with approximately 100 participants from all Caverion divisions and functions. The key focus this year was in the renewal of our strategy.
