ICA’s senior team liked our “incomplete leader” approach and ideas for building diverse, complementary teams. Starting at the top, we assessed each senior leader against our Primary Colours® Model of leadership (PCM), providing individual feedback and development support.
We then ran alignment workshops with each team to help them play to their strengths and make leadership a ‘team game’. And we designed a week-long programme with Oxford Saïd Business School, to develop the senior leadership group as a whole. The programme runs annually and is built around PCM.
Once we had worked with the top 90 leaders, ICA decided to embed the model and ideas throughout the Group, and we have trained 70 of their people to use the Primary Colours® tools. This has helped ICA to ‘live’ the approach throughout the Group.
