FEATURED CASE STUDY
High Potential Development in Toronto
Axiom holds a longstanding partnership with a rapidly growing natural foods company based in Toronto. Our collaboration began by assisting all people leaders in grasping the essentials of engaging leadership. Over time, our role evolved, encompassing mission refinement, values integration, structural alignment, cultural enrichment, and high-potential development. Their CEO’s candid query to Axiom was simple yet profound: “We are growing at such a fast rate, how do we help our people grow just as fast?”
Fostering Swift Personal and Professional Advancement
In a collaborative endeavor, Axiom and the organization in Toronto introduced an accelerated development initiative for cohorts of high-potential and high-professional employees. The immediate impact was profound. As talent gravitates toward environments that appreciate it, this leadership development program unmistakably conveyed to these top performers that their contributions were highly valued. Simultaneously executing their ongoing roles, participants embarked on a six-month voyage of personal and professional growth in Toronto.
Tailored Relevance for Both Organization and Individual
The accelerated development program was tailored to the organization’s requisites. Its elements are wide ranging and highly supportive to growth:
- A leadership / org. culture assessment for enhanced self-awareness.
- Creation of a personal development plan, shaped by input from a coach and the participant’s direct leader.
- Monthly cohort learning sessions centered on core competencies like ‘feedback,’ ‘delegation,’ ‘quick decision-making,’ ‘agility,’ and more.
- Mentorship facilitated by a senior organizational leader.
- Regular one-on-one personalized coaching within a secure and confidential environment.
- Peer calls for sharing insights within the cohort and seeking advice on common challenges.
- A post-program assessment to gauge effectiveness.
As we write this case study, we are onto our 5th cohort, actively accelerating the growth and development of over 50 participants. We have helped them not just to navigate the often-turbulent currents of rapid growth, but effectively helped them lead through it.
