Large Financial Services Group – Principal Client: Head of Management Development

Business Issue

This large Group wanted to revitalise its approach to leadership and management development including its succession planning process, to enable the implementation of a new business strategy.  A new group wide competency framework had been created to serve as a foundation for building better management capability.  Management Development had a history of success in the organisation and it was expected that the new approach would establish a development culture that included an active approach by managers to managing performance.

How We Helped

We worked with the new competency framework using level five competencies (the highest level) to design a Senior Management Development Programme of three modules, each approximately three days duration, covering business, personal and managerial effectiveness.  The broad concept of the three modules was for managers to: develop their knowledge of the external environment and business market for their industry;  develop a better knowledge of themselves – personal capabilities and interpersonal skills, and to develop the leadership and managerial capabilities to deploy their business knowledge and personal capabilities in engaging their people in achieving high performance.  After the design and development of the programme, we were asked to lead delivery.

Outcomes and Results      

Over a three year period one hundred and twenty senior managers from across the Group completed the programme.  Business topics included the competitive environment, strategy, shareholder value, managing change, process management, market analysis and building effective organisations.  Personal topics included decision making and judgement, communication, developing self-awareness, working with others and organisational culture.  Leadership topics included direction setting, strategic, inspirational and operational leadership, team effectiveness, influencing style and leading change in customer orientation.
