Case Studies - Executive Coaching (Team Coaching)

What We Were Roped In For

In 2015 GCL had the opportunity to engage with the worlds largest aquaculture company, NAQUA based in Al Lith in Saudi Arabia. We were roped in to enable a complete Leadership Transformation program with a number of workshops enhanced with Coaching engagements for its Leadership Team. The goal of this engagement was to bring together the NAQUA leadership team to form a high performance team that achieves more by leveraging individual strengths and its inherent diversity.

Engagement

Between Nov 2015 till January 2017 we worked with the NAQUA leadership team:

Results

These group and individual coaching engagements also helped the leadership team members to understand people, their behaviours and differences to overcome team dysfunctions leading to their desired results – a high performance team.

Enabling Constructive Destruction

An interesting CASE STUDY that highlights the power of coaching that enabled constructive destruction! If you are wondering what is, read ahead…

The Situation

The leader for one of the best-selling haute couture labels attended our first leadership program in 2014 and he was very appreciative of his key takeaways from the 3 day workshop which encouraged him to work with Global Coaching Lab to facilitate and coach his leadership team to overcome some dysfunctions that existed in his system.

Although they were a top fashion label, their current challenge was to build an export brand for themselves and to tap into the potential to the domestic Indian market.

Engagement

Some of the key highlights of this engagement:

When we facilitated the leadership team alignment sessions, the leader realised that the people in his team were not the right fit. His leadership team needed to be replaced (he has been working with people who were unwilling to fit into the new vision).

The coaching and facilitation engagements helped the leadership team address the ‘big elephant’ which otherwise was always under the surface.

The coachees realised the rigour that was setting into the system, which compulsorily necessitated them to change to stay within or to exit the system.

Result

There was a lot of attrition, however it led to the right people remaining who would align to the organisations vision. We would like to acknowledge the leader –

  • He had the tenacity to go first in every session.
  • He developed new leadership muscles that he was uncomfortable to use earlier.
  • He was the first to showcase vulnerability into the team.
  • He is a leader with a heart and values in the right place.
