Transformational leadership at Axess Logistics
Axess Logistics offers a total logistics solution for imported cars. Following a merger between three different competitors from three different countries, the newly formed executive team identified a need for a development journey to create a unified leadership team.
- Ensure the ongoing success of the merger
- Establish a visible and high-performing leadership team
- Build customer confidence and centricity
The solution combines facilitated executive team conversations with challenging outdoor adventure, feedback sessions, reflection and peer-to-peer review. The five-day face-to-face retreat was held in the Lake District and incorporated dynamic learning opportunities and highly experiential outdoor projects that aimed to encourage proactive high-performing leadership and collaboration skills and build strong working relationships.
By leveraging the power of the outdoors with the closeness of peer-to-peer work, participants strengthened their relationships and identified issues and tangible action steps to work on post-programme. “The automotive industry is changing a lot and to be able to succeed we need a very aligned management team. Coming to the Lake District really helped, the whole programme has been excellent. We have got closer to each other and understand the dynamics of the group”
