One of Asia’s fastest growing asset management firms was struggling to get the talented individuals at the MD and Executive levels to communicate more effectively between each other and create a culture of collaboration at the top. The resulted in a silo mentality that was having a negative impact on overall organisational effectiveness.
We conducted 36 in depth stakeholder interviews to get a true understanding of the different perspectives within the organisation around each of the participants behaviours, specifically as they related to communication and collaboration. This was followed with a 3 day offsite at our retreat centre in Chiangmai Thailand. Each individual went through a process to help them become conscious and aware of the limiting behaviour patterns that were holding them back from being a collaborative team. They then developed ways to support each other in the change process. 3 months of follow up coaching was used to in bed the new behaviours back in the working environment.
100% rated the program useful or very useful
Feedback from key stakeholders suggested that new levels of collaboration and team work were being achieved. Based on the success a second leadership team are also now embarking on the program.
I find that I’m more engaging and better able to give attention to people. I’ve stopped bringing my phone to meetings and I’ve really tried to get in touch with co-workers and be more open and ask questions
I find it easier to give feedback to team members and convey the message in a more effective manner
The learning in this workshop applied to both personal and work life. I made me realize how I normally operated in my old pattern (auto-pilot) and provided me with a new perspective on using mindfulness to catch my own patterns and then be able to change those behaviours.
