They needed to gain insight into their leadership styles, both as individuals and as a team, and create space for reflection around how they would most effectively work together.

They identified key priority areas which the new team should focus on moving forward.

The Solution

Each leader completed the Saville Assessment Wave® Professional Styles questionnaire and partook in a one-to-one development feedback session exploring leadership styles, individual strengths and challenge areas.

The leaders explored how their individual leadership style interplayed with the others in the team, as well as exploring the leadership profile of the group in context of the new business priorities in a full-day facilitated workshop.

A further one-to-one session was conducted with each of the leaders to delve into their Leadership Risk profiles and the potential impact these have on their team and the wider organization.
