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 increasingly add value to their customers, 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.
