American Luxury Jeweler

At an inflection point with a new CEO and shrinking market share, an American luxury brand hosted a leadership development program for its executive team. The objective was to align senior leaders around the new CEO’s vision at a critical time of change for this historic company.

IDENTIFYING AND MEMORIALIZING CULTURE CHALLENGES

ImageThink visualized several sessions focused on the company’s internal culture. This sensitive topic became approachable when leaders could reflect back upon the visual synthesis, which translated difficult challenges in approachable group metaphors. The visuals provided a neutral conduit and solid record to objectively examine and distill workplace challenges.

The resulting conversations were so robust, that it promoted a shift in the agenda to focus on challenging conversations about organizational culture and leadership.

LEANING IN TO DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS

The ImageThink team facilitated intimate working groups, directing leaders through the rich conversations and insights of the previous days. Our team coached each group to identify issues critical to the company’s success. We then designed an idea marketplace where each working group could review and give feedback to each other. The result was a cohesive plan and aligned team.

Collaborating with the group, ImageThink facilitators translated these issues into a robust visual metaphor. The last day of the session, each leadership team presented their visual strategy to the C- Suite for review.

ENERGIZED, ALIGNED, AND EAGER

Thank you Nora Herting and the ImageThink Team for your amazing partnership this week. We could not have delivered such an engaging and inspiring leadership experience without you.
