Today more than ever, CEO’s, C-level executives, general managers, and business unit heads are faced with a need to significantly alter the very fabric of their enterprise. Success on the road ahead may require nothing short of transformation.
When faced with this call for a new era in the dynamics and performance of an enterprise, change that represents a simple improvement or adjustment to already existing elements of the enterprise is not enough. Successful enterprise transformation often requires unique and innovative approaches that both drive change and support current operational performance.
telos’ expertise in this arena resides in the ability to involve and engage a broad and diverse set of stakeholders while expertly managing the three facets of transformational change: novelty, continuity and transition.
How we helped a financial services company drive growth
A publicly traded US-based financial services company sought to drive growth and support its plans for expansion by accelerating the leadership capabilities of its key talent and create an internal cadre of ‘ready-now’ senior leaders.
telos designed, developed, and delivered a multi-cohort Leadership Academy program that touched nearly 75 of the organization’s most talented leaders.
This growing population of capable leaders has enabled the organization to press forward with its plans for expansion. The experience has given rise to a new leadership language and a set of consistent terms that have taken hold and enabled internal discussions about leadership to ensue. The galvanizing shared experience that telos created has also increased levels of retention and employee advocacy. It has lead to measurably higher levels of cross-functional collaboration and triggered the culture to grow more quickly in the direction of efficient communication and transparency. Lastly, a dramatic increase in connection to purpose and a clearer view of the organization’s vision was measured as an outcome and has driven higher levels of overall engagement from participants.
“I want you to know that in my 25 years in the business, I have never worked with someone who has made such a huge impact on my life and career. It is not just your knowledge and capabilities but also your ability to truly care and make a difference in the lives of those who you touch.”
