To improve areas of change management and high performance teamwork, the Council employed Lindsay McKenna Ltd who are experts in this line of work.
After many weeks of evaluating various consultants, Lindsay McKenna Limited met and often exceeded the required criteria. On a number of occasions the Council saw them in action at key project conferences and they also delivered a free session to the intended participants in order to evaluate further.
This company is recognised as a unique niche provider and are experts with passion in the very two areas that the Council seek significant improvement and support. Their integrated offering has not been replicated elsewhere. Some providers do workshops and some offer consultancy support and others have an approach - but rarely all are put together in one package.
Their approach to the project-change frame has put together the disciplines of project management and change management. Their offering includes a renowned change management publication, a common approach, skills workshops for every project role, tools, templates and consultancy support.
This gave the Council a fighting chance of getting the skills and style deployed in the workplace with real hard benefits being realised.
Their high performance workshops helped take people back to basics around human interaction and what it means to belong to and lead a team through the use of striking footage of animal teams where effective teamwork is the difference between life, death and species survival.
Their footage and lessons from the wild analogies are cleverly blended throughout their teamwork sessions enabling some hard hitting facts and insight about teams to be conveyed as real teams tackling their own issues and challenges. A unique and again well researched and professional package.
