Wellcome Trust Case Study

Interweaving Leadership and Organisational Development

The task: Develop a leadership culture and internal values appropriate to this organisation, providing a sense of common purpose across a range of talented specialists.

The product: MaST devised 4 phases of training:-

Phase 1 – A series of programmes designed in 4 modules (2 days, 1 day, 1 day, 2 days) with each module occurring approximately every 4 weeks. In addition to pre-work and identification of live case materials, participants also form Action Learning Sets of 6 people who meet at least once between each module.

Phase 2 - We integrated their Business Principles (Values) in to their Leadership programme for its 150 leaders.

Phase 3 - Leading High-Performing Teams workshop, to embed the trust’s four core business principles in its leaders. The workshop also focused on the Success Model - which was used to plan, implement, evaluate and motivate team performance.

Phase 4 – A change management programme for Leaders. 

The results: Improved relationships, communication and training culture in the trust. Participants tell us that they feel more empowered to make decisions, have more positive performance conversations and are more able to influence at a senior level. The impact of the programme is extending way beyond leadership development and is providing the organisation with vital data for ongoing cultural change initiatives.

Validus Case Study

Development of the IT Global Leadership Team

The task: Combine an IT function that was split across three separate business and several geographical locations (Europe, Bermuda and North America) to avoid duplicating work in independent silos – and to utilise Lencioni principles, at the request of the incoming CIO.

The product: MaST designed and delivered a team development workshop for each site, built mostly around the Lencioni model and incorporating other methodologies. We used the SDI personality/ behavioural tool and a communication patterns model to facilitate conversations. We then developed four follow-up Action learning events to embed the training – 90 minutes online, including participants from different sites to promote relationships between sites. At the same time we delivered a webinar workshop to the general IT population in Canada, to familiarise participants with the Lencioni language.

The results: Each month we tracked behaviours against 4 measures for each of the 5 Lencioni behaviours. For the majority of behaviours, there was a month-on-month improvement. Each site reported an increase in trust and, across the global sites, meetings were recorded as being more effective - and duplication of work had diminished.
