Impact partnered with Nestlé Thailand to develop middle managers' leadership capability; training was centred around coaching and aligned with Nestlé's leadership framework.
Nestlé Thailand recognised the need to develop its people in line with greater regional and global competition.
Their business has matured to a level where people development has become a critical element in their future success in the region.
Specifically, they recognised the need to develop their middle managers to drive the leadership capability down through the organisation.
Impact worked with Nestlé to create an internal management development programme aligned with the organisation’s core values:
- Leadership in Action
- Coaching for Success
- Passion for the Business
At an early stage, we recognised that for this programme to be successful, senior leaders were required to coach and mentor the participants through the process. The senior leaders had to be an integral part for the long-term success of the training. In short, we needed their buy-in!
As a partner of Nestlé, we designed the training to be aligned with their leadership framework:
- Inspiring people – developing and leading people
- Opening up – knowing yourself
- Dealing with others – proactive co-operation
- Adding value – results focus and innovation
The outcomes were agreed which created a stronger focus:
- Improved demonstration of skills and personal attributes
- Improved performance of people
- Improved business performance
"Coaching for Success can help build the organisation dynamics as well as the managers' skills to improve team performance by using GROW and PRO techniques."
"Coaching for Success is a very good topic which helps our managers increase their ability to coach and challenge."
"Coaching for Success techniques are useful and applicable.”
