SITUATION AND CHALLENGE
Due to COVID 19 and other environmental challenges, Dynamic Achievement was engaged by IKEA Richmond to help the leadership team develop greater cohesion and increase their capacity and leadership skills to influence and inspire their teams to achieve their highly aspirational annual goals.
Dynamic Achievement worked with the leadership team for six months by implementing ‘The Co-Creation Leader’ program which covered the following key areas: 1. mindset for leadership excellence, 2. developing a culture of excellence, 3. developing practical leadership skills that inspire teams to achieve excellence, 4. sustaining leadership excellence with our ‘ACHIEVE Online Sustainability program’.
At the end of the program, IKEA reported the following results:
- Increased team cohesion and individual commitment
- Expanded capacity to innovate and adapt
- Increased ability to lead and inspire their teams
- Increased focus on delivering superior results faster
- Mindset for leadership excellence
- Greater clarity at understanding organizational culture
- Practical and measurable action plan on how to shift the culture to the ‘Ideal Culture’
- Significantly improved business and financial results
‘Through our journey, we have been able to expand our capacity to innovate and adapt, to lead and inspire our teams, and to focus on delivering superior results faster through a more vertical mindset. The previous months have shown some successes never reached before, while significantly improving our business and financial results. This leadership journey has also been an emotional journey for the participants, identified as necessary steps for building a mindset for excellence. This stage has definitively provided us with greater clarity at understanding organizational culture and a practical and measurable action plan on how to shift our team culture toward the Ideal Culture in our store. Through a clear vision and a better clarity on each role, we must be able to deliver our action plan and goals through focus and excellence. Team cohesion and individual commitment are contributing to reach our ambition to be recognized as great place to work, being performant and appreciated by the rest of the organization’.Cédric Gulbierz - General ManagerIKEA Richmond
