Abstract: The objective of this project was to create an environment that supports and promotes sustainable, superior business results by helping leaders build fluency in behaviourally based leadership skills. Over seventy leaders from three divisions participated in the programme which involved creation of behaviour-results maps, short learning sessions to train basic behavioural concepts and associated leadership tools, and use of cascaded behaviour action plans to drive new results. Impact of the new leader behaviours was evident in improved productivity, reliability and cost management. Data also showed that the behavioural focus led to substantial lift in improvements that were already underway due to other (non-leadership based) improvement efforts. Methodology and results will be shared.
