About

Wärtsilä is a global leader in complete lifecycle power solutions for the marine and energy markets. The company has operations in nearly 170 locations in 70 countries worldwide. Impact developed two initiatives to instil a coaching culture in Wärtsilä.

Creating a high-performance culture in the business, through the development of coaching skills in a Coaching for Performance programme and the use of a coaching approach in a Leading Teams programme.

Having to anticipate changes in the global marketplace and being able to add value to their customers increasingly, senior leaders in the business recognised that they needed to adapt their business model to remain competitive.

Wärtsilä and Impact have worked in partnership since 2011, delivering an event for the Top 12 of the Services division globally that focused on developing the team to lead a coaching culture.

To date, over 230 managers across five continents have taken part in Coaching for Performance workshops. Participants have made significant progress in developing their own coaching capability that works for them in their business context.

Employee Development Manager
The Miller Group
"Working with Impact was certainly enjoyable. I particularly valued their ability to creatively interpret ideas into activities, their willingness to share their extensive knowledge and their flexibility in responding to our ever-changing requirements. The dedication and commitment the facilitators demonstrated throughout the actual event went above and beyond. The result ~ an experience that challenged our graduates, exceeded my own expectations and provided real value for our business.”

"18 months into the graduate leadership development programme, and I can truly say it has been such a great experience. The activities we have undertaken have ranged from learning presentation skills, understanding your impact in a team, to having a lot of fun along the way with challenging activities, such as white water rafting and rock climbing. The external training we are fortunate enough to receive, as well as on-the-job training has helped me to build on my career."
Patrick Wolf
Head of Human Resources
Migros Bank
The financial industry is changing rapidly, there are many disruptions knocking at our door. The shortage of professionals on the labor market not being the slightest, leaders need to interact humanly and use the power of swarm intelligence. To help us solve these problems we need to transform our business through leadership development. As we develop our leaders, we are also ready to tackle the challenges that are ahead of us, and to become more futureproof.
