More Than $17 Million in Revenue Attributed to an Elite High-Potential Development Program
After facing increased competitive pressures and becoming highly dependent on their talented staff, a global communications and media corporation initiated a talent development program. The organization knew their employees made the difference with customers, and in order to retain their market position and grow, they needed to invest and accelerate development in the next generation of high-potential leaders.
After a comprehensive needs analysis, a set of leadership competencies were identified. Wilson Learning then designed and implemented a five-day program for an elite group of high potentials throughout the United States, Canada, and Latin America. The program addressed leadership competencies focused on improving communications, productivity, innovation and creativity, relationship building, strategic thinking, and talent management. The program was designed using content from several programs, including Leading from Within, Building Relationship Versatility, Managing Styles in Conflict, Leading for Growth™, Negotiating to Yes, and Strategic Business Calling. The solution included pre- and post-work, as well as ongoing group-based coaching and mentoring to ensure understanding of the relevance and application of newly acquired skills to participants' jobs.
Participants attributed more than $17 million in revenue to the skills learned in the program. More than 70% of participants indicated improved interpersonal relationships with their staff and clients. 87% of participants reported improvement in key skill areas.
