Case 4: Tailored leadership program for a global energy company

Background and challenge

The Client is a leading global energy company headquartered in Norway with activities in more than 20 countries. Their leaders must be culturally sensitive and comfortable cooperating in an international setting. The Client needed a tailored leadership program that took the international aspects into account as well as being congruent with their strong leadership values.

Our role and approach

We developed a leadership development program carefully suited for an international group of senior managers (most of whom report directly to the top management group). One group was guided through this program within the course of a year. Our consultants led the training sessions, teamwork and workshops, and performed coaching to further strengthen their leadership abilities. The program begins with a diagnosis (360, trialogue, MBTI) and thereafter focuses on improving the leaders’ abilities to inspire employees and co-workers, develop employees and co-workers, and deliver on agreed targets. It also focuses on increasing participants’ self-awareness and understanding of their own strengths and development potential.

Impact

The first group of leaders went through the program in 2011-2012. Feedback from the top management group clearly stated that this leadership program contributed significantly to the corporation’s achievement in reaching critical operational targets. Based on these results, the top management group asked Agnus Consulting to guide the next group of leaders through the same program in 2013-2014.

 

“Agnus Consulting has provided highly-appreciated coaching and consulting over the past two years of collaboration. Their efforts in understanding the client’s needs are impressive, and their dedication in partnering with the client in order to contribute to solving the client’s needs is solid and professional. I truly recommend Agnus Consulting as consultant within the areas of leadership development and coaching.”
