Management was top-down.

Collaboration was essential to avoid going bottom-up.

Time for a bold change.

What

During this start-up’s early days, management took tight control of the reigns to ensure survival. But after a change in the executive ranks, the CEO wanted to trade the culture of domination for collaboration.

How

 

Strategy began at the top, by retraining the CEO to cultivate participation, teamwork, and creative thinking among employees and shifting his management style away from dictatorial.

Using behavioral assessments, day retreats, team-building activities, and fun visioning exercises away from the workplace, we enabled the executive team to discover for themselves how powerful and positive good communication among a diverse group is, and how to keep priorities and even fun a part of working together — even in a chaotic start-up environment.

Success

Experiencing first-hand how good alignment with co-workers and company culture feels really paid off. The CEO listens more, asks questions, and steps back so others can display their value. Team members now understand their own styles and how to best work with others on the team with different styles. The company continued to grow and prosper and was recently acquired.
