Creating global excellence by making people and opportunities visible
THIS IS HOW EMPLOYEES AND THE BUSINESS SHOULD CONTINUE TO DEVELOP
Next year, a new leadership program will be started for a further 100 employees. In addition, a “Leader’s menu” will be created with complementary programs, seminars and courses.
THE STENA LEADERSHIP PROGRAM for 120 managers at Stena will soon be completed. Six groups have been held and the seventh and final one will be completed in March. After this, a meeting for all the participants will be held.
“There will also be preparations for the next level’s leadership program where may of those who have now completed the program will be engaged as coaches and program facilitators. In this way, both programs will be linked to form a chain”, says Eva Hansdotter, HR Director, Stena.
The leadership program beginning in 2016 with the working title “Grow” will be attended by a 100 persons at the middle-management level. As before, the focus will be on a combination of business acumen and leadership with the goal of developing oneself, one’s subordinates and one’s own activities. Parallel with this, Eva Hansdotter and Janine Sjöö, Manager, Stena Leadership Academy, are drawing up a “Leader’s menu”. This will contain different programs, seminars and courses, which can be used as a complement in order to further develop one’s leadership.
“These are for all leaders, not only those who have attended one of the leadership programs. The first courses will be available already at the beginning of 2016 and more will be added later”, says Janine Sjöö.
|STEPS TOWARDS ACHIEVING OUR PEOPLE VISION: CREATING GLOBAL EXCELLENCE BY MAKING PEOPLE AND OPPORTUNITIES VISIBLE|
|•||Stena Leadership Program for 120 managers and specialists|
|•||Stena Leadership Program – Grow for 100 middle managers|
|•||Cross-functional project teams|
|•||Stena Leadership Academy and Stena Academy|
Together with the two leadership programs, this forms the cornerstone in the Stena Leadership Academy and later also the Stena Academy where all the programs, seminars and courses at Stena will be gathered under one umbrella.
“This helps to make different development opportunities visible. The idea is that as many as possible should be cross company, but ownership will lie with the company or department where the knowledge exists”, says Janine Sjöö.
Another area of interest right now is the projects the participants in the Stena Leadership Program have worked on during the course of the program. There are a total of 28 projects, four per session, that are based on seven different themes with a specific business interest. Each group has consisted of 4-5 persons from different companies, departments, areas of competence and countries.
“The diversity and mix of competences con-tribute to the development of a large number of opportunities for the future. Additionally, mixing people who are not familiar with the subject generates even more innovative thinking”, says Eva Hansdotter.
From each of the seven sessions, certain projects have been selected for further study directly. Work on some of the projects will begin later on while others will need to be analysed further or remain as interesting input prior to future business.
“We’re now looking at whether we can intro-duce this way of working with projects across company borders within the framework of our normal activities. An enormous dynamic can be created by bringing together our employees’ energy, thoughts and ideas – which contributes to creating global excellence”, says Eva Hansdotter.
