4. Leadership Development
Developing Leaders within a global digital services business
A global organisation had strategic objectives to developing and growing leaders.
What we did
We developed an ongoing, modular programme for existing and new leaders in the business. The programme was designed to develop a strong sense of cohort identity and a shared sense of trust, so that participants could build greater self-awareness – one of the key building blocks of good leadership.
The programme integrated the latest thinking and methodologies around leadership to the particular challenges and opportunities faced by the business: from self-awareness and the concept of leadership as a whole, to the importance of communication in great leadership, to leadership in the context of a changing, complex global environment. Practical tools, such as coaching skills, MBTI and Transactional Analysis, ensured participants could build their capabilities as leaders.
The programme was flexible and included a combination of different learning methodologies and one-to-one coaching sessions to encourage participants to step up and into their own authentic leadership role.
Self-assessment and discussions with managers showed that, by the end of the programme, participants invariably understood their personal goals as a leader, their evolving leadership style and how they can use it within the context of the changing world of work, and their own part of the organisation in particular. They were much more confident in identifying situations where they can flex their leadership behaviours in order to challenge, inspire and encourage greater levels of performance from their teams.
What the participants said
Working with Beyond is an empowering journey in personal development. Their coaches are extremely perceptive and intuitive and are truly professional executive coaches.
They teach you the ability to analyse any given situation or path and in so doing help you take control of your personal development, through your own actions and responses. You then have the tools to manage your destiny.
The results of Beyond’s interventions have been significant; their questioning helped me to develop real clarity about complex organisational issues. I have been so impressed I have asked them to continue to coach me.
