To deliver their 2020 vision of success, the board of this insurance organisation recognized a need to transform their culture to one that promotes entrepreneurship, collaboration, empowerment, accountability, innovation, meritocracy and high performance. To create it, the organisation asked Accelerance to partner with them in developing a new generation of high potential, senior leaders, and equip them with the capability to lead in a high performance culture.
Specifically, they asked us to develop senior leaders who are able to: think and act strategically; encourage and harness diversity of thought and maximise talent within a multigenerational workforce; thrive in the context of change enabling agility, creativity, collaboration and innovation to flourish; promote entrepreneurial thinking and behavior; have a clear understanding of the operational and financial dynamics of an insurance company; and who create, find and provide meaning and purpose at work.
Collaborating with the Talent CoE, we designed and delivered a two phase (2 modules of 3 days) intervention running over 6 months for a cohort of 28 high potential future leaders, identified as future directors of the organisation in the UK.
Key features of our solution:
“I knew after our first meeting Accelerance were the right partner right to work with on our senior Accelerated Development programme – we met for 3 hours to share each others values, aspirations, views and passion for developing talented future leaders and it was a meeting where we jointly felt it was right to work with each other. The programme has had a profound effect on not just the delegates, but the broader organisation, taking an innovative approach to learning, enquiring not telling, learning from outside our industry for inspiration and developed a powerful cohort who have had a positive effect on the organisation. I have kept in touch with the Accelerance team and I will certainly be working with them again throughout my career.”
