Technical Specialist to People Manager
Our Client’s Problem
4-Most Europe Ltd is a specialist risk consultancy delivering successful and cost effective solutions across the UK and internationally. They consult direct with their financial services clients, frequently embedding specialist consultant teams into client operations and facilities.
We’d previously helped their consultant teams with both Presentation and Influencing skills workshops.
The business’ new challenge was in developing their Senior Leader audience, these were technically brilliant financial modellers, many of whom were new to leading and managing consultant teams.
Our Bespoke Solution
- Pre-programme call with all participants to understand their specific learning objectives
- A series of 1-day modules exploring the 4 stages of Emotional Intelligent Leadership
- Forum Theatre: group exploration using professional business role-players
- Real-Play: participants practice behaviours and approaches
- Post programme 1-2-1 coaching support
Our Learning-by-doing approach
We designed a bespoke 4-module programme; incorporating industry-leading psychometric testing & feedback, personal 360-feedback reports, emotional intelligence and proven leadership, management and communication models and tools.
Each module explored the practical use of the models and tools. Allowing participants to try-them-on-for-size, comfort and fit. Developing authentic and confident approaches to managing and leading their people.
We used the specialist skills of our business role-player actors and their ability to create real-life learning scenarios. Their first-person feedback gave participants the most valuable data rarely, if ever, given at work – how they came across and their interpersonal impact.
