Real World Examples
Here are some examples of why others have contacted The Human Dimension:
- The head of an operating department of a large multinational company contacted us to help her to assess, train and coach her direct reports, many of whom were relatively young and new to management. Her budget was small, and we designed and delivered a cost-effective solution that was very successful.
- A global consulting company contacted us when they needed help to develop a consistent program of supporting and developing their own executive coaches in North America and Asia.
- The owner of an electronics company called us when his company had grown to its capacity in the sixteen years since its founding. He needed our support to move into the next stage of development after entrepreneurship. He wanted an objective view of the company — its processes, systems, employee relations and development systems — and recommendations on what steps to take next in order to continue to grow.
- The new director of the US division of a large multinational company called when he was charged with combining two previously competing and geographically dispersed departments into one team — after years of blaming each other for being late in delivering their product.
- The nursing director of a large hospital called for help in resolving serious conflicts between her departments, and to find out the cause of heavy turnover in the clerical ranks of the nursing departments. Employee morale was very low in the administrative services area, and it was distracting the nurses from patient care. She needed help identifying the reason for these problems, and designing and implementing solutions. (The problems turned out to be related.)
- The owner of a small company called because he needed a way to develop his managers so they would stay with the company, and so they could in turn develop the people reporting to them.
- The middle managers of the Chinese division of a European company were frustrated with the stress of having to constantly train new people because the turnover in two positions was 200% a year.
- A department manager at a large power company in the US heard from a fellow manager that our team-building program had made a big difference in his department’s morale and teamwork, and productivity was up. He wanted those kinds of results too.
- The Manager of a retail department store in China wanted us to help her increase sales and get employees in different departments to help each other in making sales, rather than competing with each other.
- The CEO of a US company with 250 employees wanted to improve teamwork among the executives who reported to him — his senior management team.
