Excelitas Senior Executive

Situation

Excelitas Technologies is a global leader in optoelectric and photonic solutions. The executive team, including the Chief Human Resources Officer, recognized that sustaining and developing people and relationship-based leadership capabilities would help support an improved work climate and engagement, and, in turn, improve performance.

Solution

Excelitas’ leadership team partnered with Six Seconds to develop a unique, customized, and high impact program focused on leadership and how leaders relate to and connect with others in the workplace. The program utilized the Leadership Vital Signs, a powerful 360 feedback tool for leaders, to gain actionable data. The LVS combines a self-assessment with anonymous feedback from peers and subordinates. They blended that hard data with a program of 1-on-1 coaching support  from certified consultants and experiential group learning. At the end of the program, participants completed a post assessment to measure the results.

Results

Across 3 global regions in a highly technical engineering organization, more than 73% of program participants measurably improved their leadership effectiveness – based on objective feedback from others. Participants and subordinates reported a dramatic increase in trust, openness and collaboration, and the program earned wide acclaim.

Some comments on the program included the following:

“Without a doubt, the best leadership program I’ve attended…”

“In 32 years, the best training I’ve attended. It gave me tools I actually use…

“Excellent… expertly delivered!”
