POST-ACQUISITION INTEGRATION AND CULTURE-BUILDING
Following major acquisitions of brand companies and distributors in the drinks business we faciliated and coached the senior executive team as it evolved its leadership and culture building initiative of a rapidly globalising business.
We worked in partnership with internal facilitators in designing and delivering hundreds of workshops worldwide to newly configured teams as they interpreted and action planned the changes for their locality and its relations with the centre.
We facilitated joint venture teams in South-East Asia – the sales and marketing operations of a strategic alliance between British and French principals of contrasting leadership and management style.
COMMENT: Facilitation skills are essential within a complex organisation development assignment as well as for ‘one-off’ meetings. The facilitator builds knowledge about the company and the trust of individuals and teams. This can be very powerful in adding value for the client. Familiarity needs to be handled responsibly.
‘Seamless facilitation of issues and behaviour.’ HR Director, International Consumer Brands
