We’re proud to have supported some fantastic senior managers at WRU Group on their development journey and we’re looking forward to supporting the next cohort, whose journey has already begun.
Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) and the Principality Stadium – the home of Welsh rugby – work together as the WRU Group.
As part of a focus on personal development, with a particular emphasis on developing high potential senior managers as future leaders, Rhodri Lewis, Head of Legal Affairs (with responsibility for Human Resources), approached Leading Edge to design a flagship programme to nurture these colleagues and support them in stepping up.
As a Leading Edge team, we make it our business to understand our clients’ business, and at the heart of this discovery is finding out about who we’ll be supporting on a development journey.
The senior managers identified as future leaders of WRU Group report into the Exec Board and work across operations, finance, sales and marketing, IT and customer service. Already working in senior roles, this aspirational development programme was to provide the tools and guidance needed to advance their potential and take their careers to the next level.
Ensuring this cohort developed skills on meaningful business projects with the opportunity for practical application was identified as key to making a difference and achieving the identified outcomes.
