Approach of the engagement:
A group of 60 senior leaders, many close to retirement and full of wisdom and experience. Very valued partners in the business; however, the business was changing and needed the senior executives to make changes as well. They were very resistant to making any changes or even considering any change due to their tenure and closeness to retirement. However, they still had some years before retirement, and we knew if we could make the change at this level, then the rest of the organization would follow. Due to changes in the banking industry, market growth needed to become a top priority, and approaches had to change in order to do this. In the discovery process, we uncovered that there was no real foundation for developing leaders at this highest level. The Leaders were resistant at first until we built trust.
