We worked with a construction firm, 100+ years old, that is part of a large conglomerate of over 100 companies. The firm is an umbrella for seven separate businesses, all related to the construction trades. In total, the parent company includes over 9,000 team members across the globe and is headquartered in Chicago, IL.
In 2016, the construction firm hired Bellewether to assist in the development and implementation of a leadership training program for mid to executive-level leaders within one of the seven companies. The manager from the Department of Training & Employee Development asked what we might have in our services that could assist her in creating a leadership development program. After considering the organization’s needs, we determined that the Bellewether Leadership Studio would be the most flexible and effective option.
In the studio, participants would be hand-selected by their supervisors and managers to participate. The manager’s goal was to increase both knowledge and skills in the development of leaders within the organization. We collaborated with her to develop session topics based on known professional gaps and create curriculum that would support both individual and organizational development needs.
