The CEO of an international pharmaceutical company sought to invest in the leadership development of a member of the senior leadership team in preparation for an expanded role at the executive level.
Individuals within this rapidly growing, international company were expected to create their own “visibility opportunities” and to be proactive in developing relationships with key senior leaders outside of their own line of business. With the support and guidance of a Cambridge Hill Partners coach, the senior leader has become a mentor and sponsor of the company’s Latinx Leadership Group, mentoring others across cultures, functions, and levels. They have found skillful ways to raise their visibility, broaden and deepen relationships with senior managers, and remain firmly grounded in their own values and cultural heritage.
Using well-developed coaching practices, we designed an individualized development program to meet the personal and professional goals of the senior leader. Over six months, a Cambridge Hill Partners partner worked with the individual to understand their career aspirations, embrace their authentic “servant leadership” style, present their own leadership values, and further develop their communication skills and executive presence.
