Leadership Development at Dentsu Aegis
The Talent & Development Director wanted to refocus their Step Forward Managers Programme which launched in 2016 to:
- Grow confidence and competence around specific people management skills which will enable the business to get the best from its people.
- Give consistency across the brands in the UK so every manager talks the same language and understands their role and responsibilities.
- Improve collaboration across the network – through the creation of a more supportive and inclusive community/environment.
This was a mandatory programme running across the UK business – from the Top 50 through to first-line managers – so the content had to fit a broad range of participants- a total of 500 managers.
We designed this bespoke programme for the business and created all materials which enabled the business to run the programme directly i.e. train the trainer.
Jo is a true collaborator and is very generous with her time and knowledge to ensure that the teams she works with are up-skilled so any approach is sustainable once the project has finished.
