Impact partnered with Morgan Advanced Materials to design and facilitate three unique 14–24-month leadership development journeys for three different groups: senior leaders, middle managers and graduates.
The programmes were successfully translated into fully virtual delivery due to Covid-19, pushing the boundaries of experiential, synchronous virtual learning.
The leadership journeys aimed to empower and accelerate participants' leadership abilities, equipping them with the skills to manage change in a volatile and uncertain business environment. Specifically, the journeys had four objectives:
- Global network
- Invest in people
The solutions combined landmark face-to-face modules, powerful virtual experiences, strategic business challenges, self-led online learning, podcasting, peer coaching, mentoring and mobile-first learning technology.
The virtual aspects of the programmes incorporated Impact’s digital learning app, air. They spanned multiple time zones and days and generated highly successful results, as well as creating pioneering virtual methodologies.
Participants left the programmes feeling more confident and skilled to lead change. Participant surveys demonstrated step improvement in: alignment with Morgan’s purpose and strategy, development of a global network, ability to drive and manage change, and feeling motivated and valued.
The programmes have been shortlisted for the Learning Technologies Awards in the 'Best use of blended learning category' (UK Commercial Sector).
