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.

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.
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:
