UNITE — A disparate senior management team unites, creates a vision and achieves success


The seni­or man­age­ment team of an inter­na­tion­al dis­tri­bu­tion com­pany had been without a lead­er for a year. As a res­ult it lacked a sense of pur­pose, unity and focus. Business per­form­ance was aver­age but unco­ordin­ated. There were over­laps and inef­fi­cien­cies in the organ­isa­tion.

Working closely with the HR dir­ect­or who restruc­tured the organ­isa­tion, Elizabeth helped improve com­mu­nic­a­tions and man­age­ment pro­cesses. She con­duc­ted detailed 360 reports on each per­son, iden­ti­fied indi­vidu­al per­form­ance goals and provided one-to-one exec­ut­ive coach­ing. Using psy­cho­met­ric test­ing she iden­ti­fied each individual’s strengths and con­tri­bu­tion to the team. She then brought the team togeth­er to begin work­ing in a uni­fied way. This cre­ated the firm found­a­tions for the appoint­ment of a new CEO, who could share his vis­ion and begin work­ing effect­ively with the united team. With the new CEO, facil­it­ated by Elizabeth, they agreed effect­ive work­ing prac­tices, key pri­or­it­ies and a strategy for achiev­ing the vis­ion.

As a res­ult of the clearly defined vis­ion, sup­por­ted by an aligned and effi­cient team, they were able to reach their poten­tial. The com­pany increased its mar­ket share and rev­en­ue that year in a chal­len­ging mar­ket.

I am a huge fan [of Elizabeth] and I think she’s got a real gift. She draws out the best in people with her cha­risma, energy and per­son­al­ity. I would recom­mend her to any­one.”
Finance Director, inter­na­tion­al dis­tri­bu­tion com­pany
