A leading agricultural equipment company took on a new investment and initiated a succession process from the founder to an external CEO. The leadership team needed to expand its capacity to execute on the company’s ambitious growth plans, including M&A.
To ensure the leadership team was prepared to lead the company through this next phase, the client engaged with DHR Leadership Consulting for executive coaching.
DHR performed the following:
- Executive coaching for two key executives – VP Sales and VP Manufacturing (one of whom was a family member) – to strengthen their skills in coaching, delegating, and resolving conflict.
- Personality assessments for the CEO successor, VP Sales, and VP Manufacturing to promote better communication and higher trust.
Benefits / Business Impact
- Our assessment work helped members of the management team to better understand their personal strengths and styles and communicate with each other.
- Our executive coaching work enhanced the leaders’ skills, allowing them to take on significant new responsibilities effectively, including executing the M&A integration.
