Global brand Levi’s describes how, from its products to its practices, innovation is integral, and sustainability is as essential as fabric and thread. The organisation is building on its heritage to move forward, to be as innovative and relevant to today’s consumers – and tomorrow’s – as it was when Levi’s invented the blue jean nearly 150 years ago.
Leading Edge are proud to have partnered with a client such as Levi’s for many years, supporting senior teams across Europe with building high performance. In 2021, our strong relationships with European colleagues opened up a global opportunity to facilitate Highly Effective Teams (H.E.T.) journeys for both the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) and the Commercial Operations Leadership Team (COLT).
As with so many global organisations and global teams, the past couple of years have significantly disrupted established ways of working. To come out strongly from those challenging years, Levi’s ELT and COLT focused on reviewing and rethinking how they come together most effectively as global teams in this changing landscape and context.
Senior leaders at Levi’s looked to Leading Edge’s established H.E.T. model as a framework that would flex and adapt to how they work now in a hybrid world with the scope to look and feel different for each team going on a journey to high performance.
