Cross-Cultural Strategic Influencing

Our strategic Influencing and Personal Impact (SIPI) programme, was developed in partnership with Vodafone and was an integral part of Vodafone’s investment in their leaders and emerging talent. The success of the UK rollout generated much interest from a number of their operating companies and the SIPI programme has now been delivered in Ghana, Romania, and The Netherlands and to a mix of different nationalities. Including Italy, Greece, Ireland, Malta, Egypt, Turkey, Czech Republic, China, Germany, Spain and New Zealand.

CHALLENGE

In 2009, with a high proportion of expats making up the senior team, Martyn Moutinho, Learning and Development Manager for Vodafone in Ghana faced a challenge:

“We needed to engage our leaders and give them every bit of support possible to help challenge, stretch and grow their thoughts and behaviour.”

 

BENEFITS

In the detailed evaluation of the programmes, participants indicated that the training was a worthwhile investment in their career development and will go a long way to add value to their job performance.

OUTCOME

Martyn Moutinho was very satisfied with the programmes, stating:

“I have worked with quite a few unique, well credited and highly thought of organisations in the leadership and people development field and I can confidently say Aziz Corporate is one of the best from start to finish especially in terms of their consistency.”

Feedback showed that 97% of delegates said they were VERY SATISFIED overall with the coaching

 

Challenge

IN 2009, with a high proportion of expats making up the senior team, Martyn Moutinho, Learning and Development Manager for Vodafone in Ghana faced a challenge:

“We needed to engage our leaders and give them every bit of support possible to help challenge, stretch and grow their thoughts and behaviour.”

Having heard the great feedback from the UK programmes, he decided to work with Aziz Corporate for a number of reasons:

“The content of their programmes were exactly what we were looking for – communication skills, style and influencing are key in our business.”

“The practical elements of these programmes are very attractive as most people know the theory but rarely put it in to practice.”

The Aziz Programme

Having selected 80 leaders and senior managers to attend the coaching, the sessions were divided into two phases that spanned 35 coaching days in total and involved three different coaches travelling to Ghana for the delivery of the programme.

The senior leaders, including the CEO of Ghana and his direct reports attended the SIPI programme, whilst the senior managers, attended a ‘Communicating with Confidence’ programme designed for high potentials and emerging leaders.
