Maude DiVittis, Vice President, Global People and Organizational Development, Coach International and Tom Gaffney, Senior Business Development Associate, Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)
Coach is a global company with 15,000 + employees. Having established itself as a premier provider of quality leather goods, Coach is on an aggressive growth path involving new lines, sales channels and markets. Building stronger leadership capability is a key part of its leadership development strategy, so Coach partnered with the Center for Creative Leadership on selecting, sending and supporting leaders through an external, intensive leadership program.
This session will examine Coach’s commitment to a three step process - prepping, partnering and promoting development. These steps include the tasks of selection, manager and HR support, follow-up coaching process and the creation of individual development plans. Coach has seen both individual growth and organizational impact through a critical mass of leaders now having a shared leadership experience and language. There has also been a positive impact on retention and development.
