Client Success Story, Major international car manufacturer, Germany

Leadership development across Europe

Our client is one of the leading car manufacturers in the world, with over 300,000 employees worldwide and 22,000 in Germany alone. Our client wanted to put a timely, contemporary and inspiring leadership development program in place to create a clearer and more consistent leadership approach throughout Europe. Managers needed to help lead a challenging business turnaround. The initiative involved Germany, United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Hungary, Portugal, Sweden, Italy, Spain and Greece.

What was delivered:

  • Three leadership development programs, with additional ‘satellite’ workshops and project initiatives in-between.
  • ‘Leadership 1’ focused on leadership roles, values and change management approaches in the context of the corporate vision and values, and changes in strategy.·    ‘Leadership 2’ zoomed in on the role of manager as trainer, coach and team leader, leadership styles and their effective use.
  • ‘Leadership 3’ addressed performance management at individual and team levels.

What has been achieved:

The ‘Leadership 1-2-3’ program became the blueprint for leadership development for the entire mid-management across Europe. Over 3,000 managers were trained by TMI

  • Managers developed a shared understanding of the organizational vision and values, and how to translate and apply these in their daily work
  • Managers successfully applied new ways to create and maintain positive motivation and performance in the face of a very difficult market situation.
