Building Capable Leaders: Alinta
Prior to March 2011, Alinta was a distressed asset on the verge of administration. With two different owners since that point, and a prolonged period with little development, Alinta needed highly capable leaders who could reshape the culture leading in to a period of significant growth.
They called on Modus to help them obtain top quartile engagement results and a vibrant leadership DNA that would be understood & lived by leaders across the business.
The Discovery phase highlighted several key challenges being faced by the leaders:
- How to lead in a company during a period of significant change and growth
- How to break-down organisational silos and enhance collaboration
- How to manage the performance of others and coach for results
A three-tiered leadership solution was developed to meet the specific needs of Alinta People Leaders, Senior Managers and Executive team. Off the back of a Discovery phase, a bespoke program was designed for each to build leadership capability in line with the new Alinta leadership DNA.
The three programs were Engage, Elevate and Enterprise. Each contained core experiences including off-site training days, pre-work activities, psychometric assessments with take-away frameworks and toolkits. Within each program short hits of training (SHOTs) were delivered to deepen the learning and embed the experience offering an additional point of engagement for the participants.
The multi-tiered solution included frameworks targeting the following areas:
Engage: Leading Self and Leading Others
Modus ran 9x two-module leadership development experiences for Alinta People Leaders in 2018
Elevate: Leading Self and Leading the Business
A customised leadership development program for the Alinta Senior Leaders ran twice. It ran over 2x 2-day modules for all Senior Leaders.
Enterprise: Deep Personal Insight and Executive Team Strength
The experience for the Executive Leadership Team focused on deep personal insight, executive team building and commercial leadership in VUCA environments.
Participants described the experience as relevant, valuable, and motivating.
“This is the best course that I have ever done.”
“The tasks and lessons learnt will be extremely useful for any manager at any level.”
“Some of the best facilitators that I have worked with in my career.”
– Participant Feedback
“This was the most valuable training session attended to date.”
“I feel motivated to make immediate changes.”
We look forward to reporting on what return on investment the Alinta business received from this investment in multi-tiered leadership development with us. What we know already is that engagement scores have gone up significantly across the business and that every leader has now gone through a contemporary learning experience. Across the 200 Alinta leaders who attended a program with us, the Net Promoter Score (NPS) was 81 representing a world class score.
