Help our client, a newly appointed Chief Talent Officer, transform a culture led by a leadership team with old-fashioned views about human capital management.

Given her hard-charging personality, we needed to develop a strategy to present her ideas in a way that was not only easy to understand but also less threatening.
We helped our client with four key steps to ensure her success:

- Develop a communication strategy linking the changes to goals for each business segment
- Strengthen internal partnerships, rebuilding her team with A players
