Coaching Case Studies
Our coaching solutions enhance the leadership capabilities of many people in many organizations around the world. Below, we have provided just a few examples of what we can achieve.
Top-five pharmaceutical company.
We helped this $42 billion global organization to dramatically reduce external hires of senior talent from 70 per cent to 30 per cent. Coaching formed a key part of our multi-pronged solution, with more than 700 employees participating in our leadership development and coaching program, which was designed to accelerate the development of high-potential talent.
Global technology firm.
The executives of one of the world’s largest internet technology companies were spending around $3 million a year hiring independent coaches with mixed results. We provided the firm with globally consistent executive coaching solutions, which we delivered to hundreds of leaders across the organization, from managers to senior vice presidents. Our coaching prioritized one or two competency-linked leadership behaviors to improve the likelihood of them sticking. Qualitative and quantitative data has proved the effectiveness of this approach, with the coaching initiative resulting in behavioral improvement in 90 per cent of the coached executives.
Global beverage company.
This family-owned business, faced with increasing global competition, needed to enhance the executive and leadership capabilities of its key leaders. Using executive coaching as part of multiple workshops and learning engagements, we empowered several key executives to become very successful C-suite leaders. This included a new senior vice president who has now moved into a C-suite role.
