Coaching for Performance at Wartsila
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.
The results of the review confirmed that the number of managers who present strategic and developing styles increased by over 20%. Moreover, the programme had a very positive impact on the inter-departmental / cross-functional cooperation, which is very important in such a large and diverse company as Polpharma."
