Reconnecting with why we are here

A service company decided to clarify direction and values to help improve performance

Standing in the shadow of a culture built by the former and very charismatic founder, our client realized the need for a new direction and the calibration of culture to support new ambitions.

We helped the leadership team go through a process of re-defining their reason to be in business and clarification of leadership values. This became the basis for employing new behaviours and initiating a shift in culture.

A 300 people programme needed to transform collaboration and regain alignment

Executive coaching: From the battlefield paramedic to…

A CEO wanted to improve impact within his leadership group - we worked with embodying a new leadership style

Our client was dealing with constant firefighting in an environment characterised by lack of leadership capacity. Simultaneously, his caring and non-confrontational approach, was affecting timely action on critical and strategic business issues.

Over a period of 6 months we coached the CEO to transform his leadership style from the “caring battle field medic” to the “foreseeing captain”.

The CEO’s new way of seeing and being have helped him go from being everyone’s go-to guy to ensuring the safety of the entire business, starting the process of rebuilding the leadership team, narrowing the business scope and turning red numbers into black.
