We’re delighted to support our client TUI with a tailored programme around cultural change that will touch 120 senior leaders and their teams working within TUI North Region Airlines (UK/Nordics).

The travel and tourism sector is going through significant change, and as one of the major brands within the industry, TUI Group worldwide is undergoing its own transformation. For the Senior Leadership Team within TUI North Region Airlines, the focus is increased agility and collaboration, becoming change agents to steer this transformation smoothly for leaders and teams.

Leading Edge have been engaged to support TUI with a 12-month event-based programme around the key components of change, with learnings from high performance organisations and sport driving outcome-focussed activities.

About TUI

With more than 12,000 employees helping six million holidaymakers to visit 80+ worldwide destinations each year, TUI is the UK’s leading travel brand. It combines all the elements of a memorable holiday with personal service, whether customers are booking through the website, in store, using the app or speaking to a colleague in its contact centre.

Keeping ahead of the travel industry and providing the service and experience that backs up the company’s ‘Discover your smile’ mission is a key focus. In a constantly changing and highly competitive sector such as travel and tourism, it’s the people who make the difference – TUI has been voted the ‘World’s Best Leisure Airline’ at the World Airline Awards for five years running.

Under the direction of new CEO Dawn Wilson, the organisation is investing in its people with this year-long cultural change programme.

Team Coach Insights

Leading Edge Team Coach Neil Mundell-Phipps gives his thoughts on this bespoke senior leadership programme:

“It’s a really good time to be working closely with TUI – there’s a new CEO who wants to make a difference and truly sees the value in people.

TUI is a brilliant client for Leading Edge. Having supported them in recent years and developed a great relationship, we know (and love) how they embrace collaborative working and will evolve the programme design with us until it absolutely hits what they’re looking for while keeping true to the Leading Edge Points of View.

People are front and centre in this sector, and the senior leaders I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know so far are some of the most passionate individuals you’ll ever meet. We’re just at the beginning of what is sure to be a positive 12-month journey with a fantastic group of people.”
