We partnered with the leadership team at Dr. Martens on rich and experiential capability building for global managers.

In March this year, Dr. Martens brought together 120 members of its global management team for a two day event. We partnered with the senior leadership team to design, develop and deliver key capability building content across the two days; and resources and engagement post-event to support the transfer of new learnings and behaviours back to work

Content designed and delivered included:

— Pre-event engagement to establish curiosity among those coming along.

— Practical, high-tempo and interactive 90-minute workshops focussed on Coaching Mindsets and Owning Feedback; adapting content from our core programme for multiple delivery to groups of 40 delegates over the course of the first day.

— A 90 minute workshop titled Global Learnings, that brought together cross cultural, cross functional groups to run retrospectives on good working practice, and areas for improvement.

— Physical 'learning packs' to support the content shared in the in-person sessions and enable participants to dig deeper into the topics through printed and digital resources.

— Supporting in the design of A LEGO Serious Play workshop to ensure the discussion of key learnings, and the capture of action commitments at the close of the second day — bringing in the expertise of Sean Blair to deliver it.

— Alongside the central YCN team, we collaborated with Learning Partners Erik Rodin, Hannah Lidgate, Liz Whitney, Kate Rees and Scott Morrisson to deliver key workshop content.

We build capability

We help organisations of all shapes and sizes to become more capable in pursuit of their goals.

To do this we focus on what we believe to be the three key drivers of organisational capability — People, Purpose and Partnerships. Whether through our open learning programmes, or tailored consultancy work; we love bringing together creatively-minded groups to work and learn in modern and motivating ways.
