➤ Developing executive talent depends on the needs of the organization as much as the needs of the individual. The Volatile market, the steadfast organization that the executive leads, and the business it is involved in.

Executive Development - Case Study
A Financial Institution wants to improve the skillset of one of the members of senior level management.
Seeing that he showed both ambition and promise, the institution decided to focus on training him to be a better leader. A data driven firm that focused on flawless execution and delivering more than was expected of them, they gave the same focus when it came to upskilling their workforce.
Leadership skills were developed in him by giving clear directives on how to be an inspirational leader. One who can engage both the minds and hearts of the people in the organization. The individual had a personal goal of being the CEO of the company within the next three to five years. A goal which made the process of finding and developing the leader in him, easier.
The approach for reaching the end goal included –
✔ Increasing his level of personal awareness – The types of conversations he naturally engaged in. The roles he would take on naturally during meetings, and how comfortable he was with the ones he was asked to.
✔ Defining his standards for inspiration – How he defined inspiration, and how his peers, colleagues and leaders identified with this attribute of leadership.
✔ Defining and developing his skillset – Testing his ability to demonstrate his skillset before others and honing them.
➤ Tactics used for this end goal included developing his skill for storytelling, to allow for the staff to make sense of complex and complicated issues. While still being able to grasp the long term vision for the organization, and his own place in it. Moving away from slides full of data, to engaging the attention of the workforce with meaningful dialogue about key issues of the day, and maintaining a personal blog.
The employee who received upskilling was soon the Chief Operating Officer of the country wide operations of his company, with peers from his previous position now directly reporting to him.
With his senior having moved on to take up international responsibilities, he is now the one tasked with the responsibility of daily operations of the financial institution.
➤ The client was having trouble with Time management, performance efficiency and productivity.
Driving high volume on top priority items was also becoming an issue. A decision had to be made about how to reverse this to drive profitability. Developing the senior level management was the answer.
➤ A productivity program was introduced in the organization. The program included a group of 700 people, 80 of whom participated directly in it, with 45 being a core group of senior level managers and team leaders. The senior level managers and team leads were tasked with deploying the program in each of their respective divisions.
➤ This core group, which included the Vice President of the organization, engaged in a series of 1.5 day training sessions. Team coaching sessions were also conducted. Productivity enhancement was ensured with a series of one-on-one coaching sessions.
The coaching concluded with a one day managerial level coaching program for a select group of 20 key leaders.
➤ The productivity program was very successful. A new sense of work-life balance was seen across the workforce. This was a result of the structure of accountability between individuals and their teams that was now in place as a result of the program. Behavioral change and attitude towards skill adoption for the participants rose from 21% to 68%.
