A Regional Manufacturing Company
We took on a Talent development project wit a regional team of IT executives based in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. The goal was to develop and equip the executives with the essential soft-skills needed for them to be aligned to organizational objectives while meeting the department’s goal of improving their level of customer service and adopting a customer focused mind-set.
The regional managers who were coached reported a marked improvement in their leadership effectiveness and relational skills. These behavioral changes were noted and highlighted by the internal customers they serve and the Regional Vice President of IT.
A Regional Shared Services Centre
Working with the Human Resources and General Manager of a shared service center, we worked on getting the buy-in of 19 Heads of Department and Team Leaders to improve the level of employee engagement and working environment.This was also part of their employee retention initiative.
One the key milestones achieved was that the team started 28 workplace initiatives or projects that involved the entire workforce with a focus to improve employee engagement and the working environment.
As a result, they have improved in terms of their Gallup Employee Engagement Survey i.e. placing them within the bracket of top 25% of most the improved centers compared with other centers around the world.
A Regional Broadcasting Company and Content Provider
As part of an project with a client, a manager worked with her team to look for ways to lower the department’s operational costs and increase the team’s efficiency. Her team successfully saved significant amount of floor space (which meant great savings on rental costs) and staff’s man hours.
The total savings from this innovation project amounted to RM200,000 per month which means a savings of RM2.4 million per year!
A Global IT Company
Following a workshop and a coaching session on a participant’s project to improve his work productivity, this participant in a Global IT company implemented his idea generated during the workshop. His effort subsequently won him a Global Silver Award from the head office based in the US. He was one of only four recipients of the company’s Global Award. This award recognizes him for successfully increasing his productivity by 68% on a project he was supporting and at the same time reduced the cost of hiring additional headcount.

Our sales training programme at the top performing branch offices across the nation to help improve their executive’s Selling Skills and worked with them to grow their sales within a short period.
