What happens when senior executives personally commit to strengthening their leadership and building a strong culture?
Leaders throughout the organization get a clear understanding of “what good looks like” and begin earnestly evolving their own capabilities. Relationships strengthen, the quality of listening improves, and people connect to their core values.
Our client is a premier U.S. financial and wealth management organization overseeing over $600 billion in assets. Embarking on an initiative to consolidate holdings, senior executives determined that "Leadership Excellence" (characterized by streamlined decision-making and appropriate risk-taking) was essential.
An entrenched command and control culture had created a highly risk-averse environment, slowing decision-making and execution. Trium was asked to engineer and facilitate an organizational and behavioral change program that would align the client's aspirational culture to their business goals. Such a program would help the client tackle these issues head on, while fostering an environment of innovation and empowerment.
Trium led 220 senior leaders through a program of two-day offsites, followed by a 45-60 day period of practice and application to reinforce key concepts and tools, including interactive dialogues and experiential activities centered around effective ways to: lead change amid uncertainty; build and motivate teams; empower others and foster trusting relationships; and develop the mindsets and behaviors required to build a high-performance culture.
The success of the “Results Through Leadership” program has been phenomenal. Participants consistently rate the program as “exceeding expectations” while generating the enthusiasm, commitment and ownership required for immediate change. Leaders cite significant efficiency, productivity and morale improvements. Following the program review, senior leaders decided to cascade the program to the next level of leadership. In addition, Trium developed an extensive follow-up program for phase one participants.
We are proud to have served some of the world's most successful and innovative organizations which span from scrappy start-ups to fortune 50 companies, across a wide range of industries.
