Case Study

Management Development Programme

Engaged by an L&D Team to create a management develop programme for a large cohort of managers, senior managers and executives.

The objectives of the programme were to give delegates the skills to take more control and ownership during a period of substantial organisational change. This included living up to their cultural values, developing a proactive & flexible leadership style and increasing their self-awareness & emotional intelligence. As part of the programme we were asked to challenge the status quo and established mindsets to help managers break out of their comfort zones and patterns of behavior.

The programme started with a discovery & design phase where we met with executives and managers at all levels to explore the challenges they saw for the organisation. We designed the programme around these challenges. The delivery phase was for 30 training days with corresponding coaching as required for specific leaders. The programme included specific workshops on management & leadership, self-awareness, leading through change, managing difficult conversations, influencing, delegation and listening skills.

The feedback from the delegates was very positive with an average feedback score of 4.77/5 for all the workshops.

“Identified with the course, very relevant for us and the different types of change we are going through: people, process, technology. Very good course. I feel I have grown in confidence to communicate more openly in the group.”
