Deluxe Digital, Europe’s largest post-production house, was ready to move from analogue to digital. Their Managing Director asked us to work with them, initially with the senior leadership team, then throughout the company, to equip them for this challenging transition.
Peter Wright, Managing Director, Deluxe Digital:
“When I first met Lift Consultancy six years ago my company was around 30 people, the majority of whom had not managed or led teams before. I was steering us through a changing market and a major expansion programme which has seen us grow ten-fold in terms of revenue and staff. It was a priority for me to develop and maintain a culture of “can do” and constant development.
Our relationship with Lift has grown immensely as we have got to know each other. Initially working with me to develop a Foundation Management Programme they now touch all levels of my organisation from the design and implementation of Personal Development Reviews and Customer Focus Workshops to the Leadership Programmes. I honestly feel the return on our investment with Lift is highly tangible.
Katrina and Eileen are not a ‘training’ company with a ready-made template for courses. They get under the skin of the organisation, gain an understanding of the culture and goals THEN design a bespoke solution.
I see our relationship as a long term partnership and one that has been a pleasure for everyone at Deluxe.”
As described, we designed a series of programmes for the top team and function heads, including 360 behavioural feedback and coaching, to help them become an effective team and take collective responsibility for leading the business. The rapid growth of the company was matched by their development of highly effective leadership behaviour, starting with their Managing Director and spreading throughout the company. An inspiring project!
