You and I both know that your product or service is a unique offering in the market.

You also have a unique culture that makes you who you are and separates you from the competition.

So why would you choose to use a generic training solution that doesn’t take the unique needs of your people into consideration? 

Let me give you an example…

The Slate Digital team were working with a client – a SaaS HR tech solution – that had rapidly scaled up to just under 500 employees in a short period of time. As the company grew, the leadership team began to worry about the efficiency and effectiveness of their middle managers, as productivity could have been better, and the employee NPS had been lower than expected. 

They could have gone for one of the many formulaic leadership development offerings out there, but having scaled from two founders to a team of just under 500 in a little over two years, the stakes were too high to not get it right the first time. They had to be sure that whatever intervention they chose resulted in highly effective, efficient and confident leadership to take the organisation forward.

That’s where we came in.

Speaking to everyone from line managers to the CEO, our team gained an holistic insight into day-to-day life within the business, and a deep understanding of the company’s strengths and weaknesses, values and goals. The team at Slate Digital used this knowledge to design a bespoke leadership development programme, specifically tailored to the unique needs of the company, and aligned with their vision for growth and success.

To make sure the programme fitted seamlessly into the company’s culture, we incorporated the client’s own branding and terminology into the delivery of learning material. And to ensure engagement as the programme progressed, we continuously gathered feedback from participants, iterating upon the content in real-time. The result of this kind of attention to detail is that we were able to create a programme for our clients that was intentional, creative, and insightful – one that truly made a difference.

When you need highly effective leadership solutions at a crucial point in your business’ development, it has to be tailored to your business. 

What Slate Digital did:

  • Stakeholder interviews were conducted to gain a 360-degree view of the company’s needs and culture
  • Co-creation with the client was used to speed up the process of developing effective content
  • Material was tailored to fit seamlessly into the company’s ways of working, using their own key terms and branding
  • The programme was marketed internally so that everyone knew what it was about, and why the company was investing in it. 
  • Materials were provided to support the line managers of participants, helping them to provide structure and accountability to increase the impact of the programme, and to drive the right behaviours
  • Feedback was gathered throughout the programme, and adjustments were made to incorporate participant requests thereby increasing engagement

The results were astounding. The participants’ feedback was phenomenal, with the entire cohort feeling ‘very’ to ‘extremely’ confident in their leadership capabilities following our programme. Employees from across the board became passionate advocates of our methods for reinstalling exceptional management behaviours across this new and growing organisation. The client signed up for more work – always a great sign that our intervention has been successful – and our team was left feeling incredibly satisfied and proud of the work we did, and the impact it had on the company and its people.
