QA | 1 March 2018

In a recent QA article, we looked at the need to become the ‘Organisation of the Future.’ and how organisations are having to ‘re-imagine’ themselves and define new ways to adapt and prosper. Organisations must adapt to the ‘New Rules’* by evolving into a new shape – and by deploying a new series of skills and capabilities, in order to meet and exceed constantly rising expectations with ‘new and improved’ leadership capability.

Tomorrow’s Leaders, Today

What could be more vital to a company's long-term health than developing and maintaining a superior Leadership Pipeline? MAHLE UK, has met this challenge with a bespoke programme from QA based on our Stepping Up to Management course plus the SDI® – Strength Deployment Inventory Tool®. (A psychometric test based on relationship awareness theory). The programme was structured over 3 days and based on the John Adair's Leadership Model for ‘Action-Centred Leadership’ and was also used to improve internal communication and reduce conflict.

MAHLE UK: An Organisation Ready for the Future

The following video walks you through how MAHLE UK have developed their Team Leaders and Supervisors to support their ambition to become an ‘organisation of the future’. This programme helped 'Accidental Managers' (those that have been thrust in to managerial roles without any formal training), as well as those that have been in position for many years.

MAHLE UK have recognised the ‘organisation of the future’ is needed now and have equipped their Team Leaders and Supervisors to deal with the New Rules of the Digital Age. Talk to QA to find out how we can help yours.
