What we delivered:
Leading Edge designed and facilitated a cultural change journey for 50 managers and the senior leadership team (across four cohorts), with development activities underpinned by our points of view on change and leadership. Cohorts took part in four face-to-face sessions from September 2022 to April 2023.
Cross-functional cohorts were made up of managers with differing seniority and from many business areas and locations. Each cohort included one or two senior managers, who joined the journey to recognise the importance of this cultural change.
In the first session, Leading Edge Team Coaches introduced the change equation, exploring with cohorts how organisations and people change, and gaining clarity as a group on the need for this change.
Moving on to session two and the cohorts worked to generate six key cultural behaviours that would inform the rest of the programme: collaborative, trust, supportive, positive, flexible and innovative.
Sessions two to four covered leadership, bringing to life what good leadership looks like at Leadec, understanding strengths, developing self-awareness as a leader, and enhancing the leadership skills required for success.
Between sessions, Leading Edge facilitated Action Learning Sets, bringing together two or three people from each cohort virtually to learn, share and celebrate. These regular check-ins helped to maintain momentum, keep the onus on the cohort and feed into the design of future sessions.
By kicking off each session with a celebration of the previous session’s outcomes and a summary from a representative from the Action Learning Sets, collectively we kept everyone heading in the same direction and towards the same desired outcome.
