Senior Vice President - TalentLinkedIn
A tier 2 bank was facing multiple challenges with its aspiring leaders in technology, including a lack of collaboration, weak interaction with the business, poor communication, and a rush to solutions before understanding root causes. The bank needed a solution to build the confidence and capability of its aspiring leadership to lead more effectively, which led to the bank engaging Davies.
Davies implemented the Accelerated Development Programme, which included project work to focus on the application of learning to real organisational issues. The programme helped 300 aspiring leaders develop their leadership skills, build confidence, and enhance their capability to lead more effectively.
As a result of Davies’ Accelerated Development Programme, the bank saw a significant step change in delivery from the aspiring leadership cohort. Additionally, a new network was created across the organisation, significantly increasing the sharing of best practices and support of ongoing development. Business stakeholders reported improved engagement, a better understanding of their needs, and delivery of solutions/advice that tackled root causes instead of symptoms. Overall, the bank saw a considerable improvement in the capability of its aspiring managers.
