Client: Financial Services Organisation
The Issues: We were asked to work with the Leadership Team to develop a stronger sense of purpose, accountability and unity.
What we did: Over a six month period we worked in a number of sessions on developing leadership team members individually, at a leadership team level and within their own teams.
Outcomes: “The results were simply remarkable – not only did the Leadership Team benefit (both individually and collectively), but the whole organisation benefitted greatly by a significantly improved sense of cohesion, purpose and clarity of message coming from the Leadership Team. I would recommend Graham and Horizons Unlimited to any executive team who feel the need to improve their performance and deliver a high performance culture to their organisation.” (CEO)
Client: Network Central
The Issues: A women’s networking organisation, Network Central wanted to offer a value-added mentoring service to members and leverage its extensive network in Sydney.
What we did: Horizons Unlimited worked with Network Central to design a mentoring program for executive women, that would be reasonably priced and therefore accessible to all members. The program has been running for five years, supported by NRMA Motoring & Services and more recently, Vivo Cafe.
Outcomes: Since inception, the Network Central program has provided high quality mentoring support for over 100 executive women in Sydney. In the 2011 program, 87.5% of participants achieved their goals, 100% were glad they had participated, and 100% would recommend the program to others like themselves. Each year, a proportion of mentees return as mentors to give back to their community.
Client: Food Manufacturer
The Issues: There was a history of poor quality and safety performance in manufacturing, poor management-union relationships and cost management. Regional management wanted the manufacturing site transformed or closed.
What we did: We worked with the manufacturing management team to develop their leadership skills, create a Vision for the future of the factory, and build better communication with union representatives. Our engagement was intensive for the first year, then support for a subsequent four years.
Outcomes: The factory management worked hard to engage employees and was able to lead them to a different way of working. The factory is now a top-performing best-practice leader and regional supply centre.
