CASE STUDY: HiPo DEVELOPMENT
Building leadership capability in a rapidly growing FTSE 250 service business providing home repairs and improvements.
To meet the future leadership needs of a business that is growing organically and through geographic expansion (acquisition) the CEO recognised the importance of developing the next generation of senior leaders. The organisation needed to understand the existing capability and then identify and release the latent potential in its leaders.
Each participant has a clear understanding of their capability and the organisation has developed individual career paths designed to unlock potential supported, where appropriate, by Merryck & Co. business leader mentors.
HOW WE MADE IT HAPPEN
25 senior leaders were assessed over a three year period using the triangulation approach.
Individual debriefs confirmed the data gathered and each signed off to say that their reports were a true reflection of the data and debrief conversation
The results were shared with the CEO and CHRO as a key input to the career development paths of the participants.
Having identified individual strengths, we worked with the CHRO to develop an approach to unlocking the potential for growth tailored to each participant in the programme.
We highlighted specific areas for development for each leader focused on creating impact by meeting the needs of the business and increasing profitability.
Based on our insight into individual potential we matched Merryck & Co. mentors with individual leaders to support their learning and development.
The clarity obtained by the organisation has enabled a structured approach to the design of individual career paths based on a tangible evidence using a common framework and language to describe and measure success.
