Breakthrough: At the food company involved, the Top-70 was activated with this building block. Going through tough times together forges a special bond. Before embarking on the execution of a strategic program that would span several years, the company’s top management decided to invest significantly in themselves first. “Who is on the bus is as important as what’s the strategy itself”: there is a correlation, after all. The top management embarked on an intensive journey to elevate the company’s leadership and formulate a shared vision. It was not only about who participated but also about how they collaborated and developed themselves.
Impact: Having a common starting point and goal helps guide the path. Based on personal and professional development methodologies, the Top-70 engaged in off-site sessions, both domestically and internationally, to meet, challenge, discover, shape, individually and collectively. Their shared experiences played a crucial role in formulating the strategy. By building strong relationships, various potential resistances (position, status, etc.) were overcome. Strategy became more than just a cognitive exercise for intelligent individuals; it became an experience. The Top-70 felt personally invested, aiding in the solidification and authentic dissemination of the strategy, thus enhancing execution.
