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.

Coaching for Performance - This programme was designed to enable Wärtsilå managers to take responsibility for creating a ‘high performance culture’ in the business, through the development of coaching skills and the use of a 'coaching approach’.

Leading Teams - The Leading Teams programme aimed to support senior management teams in the implementation and achievement of the team’s business strategy and helped unleash the hidden potential of the team’s resources. 

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.

Feedback was extremely positive and results indicated a significant improvement across the coaching competencies measured.

"I did not expect such a positive effect of remote training. I didn’t feel that this form of meeting hindered us or was an obstacle in the implementation of the training. Super."

"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.”

"The involvement of Impact has been hugely valuable to us not only for the crucial professional insights and recommendations they were able to offer the training process and the programme as a whole, but also as their consultants bring such great energy and enthusiasm with them. It is uplifting and exciting to have them on board.”
