Issue: The highly successful founder-directors felt they needed their Heads of Departments to step up a level on the journey to help grow a much bigger business. What got the agency to 45 staff wasn’t going to get them to 90!
How: Strategy awaydays and focused workshops were held to get full buy-in and commitment to the new plan and its roll-out.
Solution: Robert Craven worked with the founder-directors and a newly formed senior team to clarify and deliver the vision for the future. A plan for clarifying, defining and nurturing the business and leaders of the future was developed.
Results: Heads of Departments took on the challenge of how to become the senior leadership team; they understood what needed to happen over 12 months for them to become the ‘board’ of the future.
Other benefits: The new model of working released the founder-directors from working in the business to work on more important strategic issues of growth and expansion.
Robert brought his unique agency experience and sector expertise to a complex series of inter-related issues we had been wrestling with. His deceptively simple approach to solving thorny issues and creating clarity is mixed with some straightforward honest talking.
