Retaining & developing talent
The client wanted a talent development programme for leaders reporting into the c-suite members. The aim of the programme was to ‘prepare participants to lead a global organisation’.
The client had grown by acquisition and the company was still considered quite new. As such there was no consistent leadership approach across the organisation and many sub-cultures existed.
The Leadership Acceleration Programme was a put forward to develop and prepare candidates to take on the challenges of leading a highly complex global organisation. 12 candidates were selected from each region and they would be intensely developed and coached over 2 years.
Strategic Leadership was selected because of our international experience and ability to have coaches living locally across the three regions (Americas, APAC and EMEA).
The programme we designed consisted of 5 elements that run in parallel over 2 years:
01 Must Win Battle Projects (Individual and Group projects linked to the organisation’s strategic goals)
02 Executive Coaching (Individual, 3-way with line manager and Group coaching)
03 Psychometrics (360 degree assessment repeated 3 times and other assessments such as Hogan, Wave and Gallup Strengths)
04 Training Sessions (Online and face-to-face sessions running regularly along with site visits and best practice observations)
05 Special Events (Guest speakers, Q&A with executives, role shadowing of executives, recorded videos, audio interviews)
