In close collaboration with Hafod, TSW developed the ‘Leadership - The Hafod Way’ programme. Our aim was to facilitate each manager toward making a direct impact on the achievement of Hafod’s strategic and operational objectives, whilst ensuring a consistent approach to their Vision for Leadership.
An initial client scoping meeting was held with Hafod to understand and agree the specific behaviours and skills desired within the organisation. We also facilitated internal research with Hafod employees to identify the perceived behaviours of leaders in terms of trust, values, acceptance of change and credibility.
Armed with this information we crafted a high-level programme that suited their needs exactly. During this process it became apparent that two programmes were required to meet differing needs at different management levels, whilst ensuring consistent messages were delivered for both. The programme aligned closely with their Vision for Leadership and the Investors in People framework by focussing on developing skills, knowledge and understanding, fundamental to good leadership.
Over a period of five months, over 50 delegates attended ILM Level 3 and 5 sessions at our dedicated training facility in Bridgend. To further enhance the learning experience of the delegates sessions were co-delivered with Hafod’s Learning and Development Manager.
Andrew Wallbridge, TSW's deployed facilitator said:
‘Due to the depth of learning required at senior management level, Hafod’s programme was made up of 5 distinct workshops, whereas the middle management content was spread over 3. The focus on each workshop was to share principles and practice, applying them to their day to day work. This approach allowed participants to build a realistic action plan focused on what they would be doing differently on the job’
