The company decided to build an enterprise wide leadership program designed for both existing top leaders and to quickly onboard new ones. The goal was to activate and develop rapid trust and openness among the diverse group of leaders to drive innovation and performance, as well as provide a robust succession planning system to seed top leadership in the accelerating company environment.
Our job as a partner in these multiple top leadership programs was to quickly develop leaders’ psychological sophistication, self-awareness, and interpersonal skills so that they could participate in the weeklong event with authenticity and a compelling executive presence. Along with our self-awareness upgrade system, we incorporated our team alignment process with participants at the beginning of the event. This facilitated authenticity and openness and created an environment of deep bonding and connection that allowed them not only to be successful in the business learning, but more importantly in the cultural network building.
