Even though the market was trending up, the U.S. division of the world’s leading agricultural equipment and chemical company had experienced flat growth two years straight. Senior leadership were wringing their hands over their own ineffectiveness.
InitiativeOne conducted an in-depth assessment of leadership issues, uncovering how they were undermining organizational performance. We worked intensely with the company’s two top leadership tiers in both leadership development and business planning.
In two years, the division went from seventeenth in per capita performance to first among 86 business segments. The senior leadership team remained intact throughout the process, and the division president was promoted as head of the global organization.
