"I want to thank you again for the two sessions you ran for my direct management team and for my young leaders in Jakarta recently. I very much appreciate that at relatively short notice you were able to re-arrange your schedule to accommodate my needs, and were able to deliver two quite different workshops which were both successful and highly appreciated by the two different audiences. You presented a variety of challenging material which stretched their thinking and thought processes, and the feedback from them all has been very positive. You certainly delivered what I was seeking."
Scott Beckwith, Business Services Manager

The Challenge

There were two challenges that THIESS Indonesia was facing. The first was finding a way to develop local Indonesian leaders who can lead and manage the business into the future. We identified that the largest problem was integrating Western management practices in a way that is suitable and harmonious with the local culture. The second problem involved the challenge of building a high functioning executive team for the Business Services group.

The Program

To solve these problems, Integral Development designed and delivered two programs. Firstly we delivered a leadership development program tailored to meet the challenges of the High Focus Junior Emerging Leaders. This was a two day program for 8 high potential leaders in the Thiess International organisation in Business Services. The program covered team building, team leadership, dealing with difficult people, problem-solving and innovation.

The second program involved a three day workshop with the executive team and involved setting strategic goals for 2012 and getting the team to be aligned and committed to this new direction. In addition, a new local Indonesian leader was taking over the team and the team had to agree on how they wanted to work with this new style of leadership.


The two outcomes we helped THEISS Indonesia achieve were improved leadership skills and confidence in the young future leaders in the organisation, and an executive team that was aligned and committed to each other and their new leader.
