In the face of complex global competition, CPP Investments worked with Impact to create INSPIRE and LEAD, two custom-designed solutions delivering targeted business outcomes for selected managing director and director populations.
The objective of the programmes was to foster a consistent approach to leadership development that provides participants with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to increase their leadership effectiveness.
As part of the organisational analysis, Impact conducted interviews with the CEO and senior managing directors. The results underpinned the design of both development solutions and identified recurring themes that formed the focus of their objectives: Enterprise Thinking, Innovation, Effective Communication and Developing Talent
LEAD and INSPIRE are nine-month learning journeys comprising face-to-face and virtual experiences, modules, inter-module bridge work, an immersive installation room, feedback sessions and a 12-week Action Learning Project. Throughout the learning journeys, strong emphasis is placed on feedback, experiential learning and networking.
Brandon Hall recognised the success of both programmes by awarding them a Gold award for Best Advance in Leadership Development.
‘A brilliantly executed way to build connectivity with CPP Investments’ purpose, what motivates people to work here, our opportunities and tall poppy status.’
