Empowering team with practical skills and a common language of leadership
Organization was seeking to strengthen their leadership skills, culture and prioritize development of its internal management group.
Senior leaders had recognized the benefits of developing from within the organization vs. facing the costs and risks associated with hiring leaders externally.
Engagement survey results reinforced the need for further employee and leader development.
Improved skills in conflict resolution and coaching were among the top priorities for development.
Following a needs assessment, we designed a customized leadership program spanning 6 months, for current people leaders, project leaders, and aspiring leaders.
The program targeted the specific skills identified by the organization including high-performing teams, coaching, feedback, communication, servant leadership and trust.
It consisted of 3 x one-day off-site retreats, pre-work steps, psychometric assessments, real-life business challenges (action learning projects) and sustainment activities designed to help participants embed new learning.
Pre and post self-assessments of confidence levels showed significant improvement of every confidence indicator. An overall average increase of 12.5% in participant confidence on core skills taught in the program.
All three solutions proposed in group action learning projects were implemented by the organization – improving marketing strategy, key process flows and culture.
100% of participants found the concepts in the program useful.
