Our Case Studies

These SMG case studies focus on how we have, over a relatively short period, developed a series of leadership values which have enabled companies, CEO’s and executives to reflect these improvements in their service provision.

1.Unit Head Executive Development

Objective:

A functional expert was appointed as a Business Unit Head: the new appointee needed to acquire a range of skills and behaviours to perform in the new role.

Additional skills and behaviours included management and leadership, communication, influencing, relationship building and strategic thinking. There was also the requirement to liaise with a broad range of internal and external, local and overseas, stakeholders. The new appointment involved membership of the executive leadership team and demanded a broader contribution at a more strategic level.

Solution:

We developed and delivered a focused, six-month-long executive coaching program, directly addressing the executive’s development needs.

Outcome:

The Business Unit Head now displays key leadership capabilities, builds ongoing relationships within- and outside of- the organisation, and inspires a high-performance team, thus contributing to the overall success of the business. Importantly, this individual has come to be regarded as an indispensable member of the executive leadership team.

Key capabilities being applied include:

  • relationship building
  • understanding organisational linkages
  • influencing internal and external stakeholders
  • inspiring teams and performing the role of leader
  • developing the ability to have authentic conversations
  • taking a broader ‘helicopter’ perspective
  • managing stress
  • dealing with ambiguity
  • building resilience
  • prioritising and delegating; allowing more time to contribute to strategic, value-adding activities.
