Maximising Performance: Global Infrastructure Organisation

High Performance through your People

Our Client’s Problem

Having successfully rolled-out a new performance management process in the UK our client wanted the same development opportunity to be afforded their SE Asia and USA teams.

The primary difference in the new system was the emphasis on more frequent ‘in the moment’ performance conversations and the development of managers ability to hold successful performance coaching conversations.

The organisation’s strategic objectives were to ensure a level of manager constancy in all performance conversation globally.

Our Bespoke Solution

  • Working with UK HR business partner teams to ensure programme consistency
  • A series of 2 x 1-day modules exploring Managing Performance and Coaching
  • 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 2-module programme; performance objective setting, incorporating Myers-Briggs psychometric profiling & feedback, skill/will performance matrix, GROW coaching methodology, 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.
