Feedback from our leadership development programs
While organisational policy often does not allow corporate testimonials, we’re very grateful to our clients who have provided them.
“HFL are clearly a tier 1 unit in providing organizations with customized solutions on leadership development. They worked with us on engaging and developing our high potential employees and demonstrated excellent client partnership and thought leadership. The team at HFL are extremely knowledgeable and experienced, and helped us to design a best practice and bespoke leadership program and development centers for a number of our executives from across the Asia region. The feedback on both these initiatives was positive from participants, and we hope to replicate some of these initiatives across other areas. Overall, it has been a pleasure to work with HFL, who have added value to our endeavors.”
Sumit Sharma, Head of Talent Management, DBS Bank Singapore, the largest bank in South East Asia.
“From concept to delivery HFL undertook to partner with our senior management team to understand our specific culture, needs and expectations, and to build strong and insightful relationships to enable a purpose built series of professional development activities. The result has seen the implementation of an Asia Leadership Development Program (ALDP) which has challenged and rewarded at the individual, team and business levels. The adoption of the theories, practices and behaviors shared in the ALDP will underpin the ‘Premier Way’ of doing business in Asia.”
Rob McPherson, Asia Region Human Resources Manager, Premier Oil Far East Ltd, an independent oil company with gas and oil interests in the UK, Asia and Africa.
“6 of the HR team attended the HR & Re-teaming workshop during March. Our focus was for HR team members to be better equipped to coach rather than advise, managers and staff during their conversations with them.
The workshop has provided us with a better understanding of leadership challenges, and how to achieve buy-in from the managers. The facilitators were engaging, knowledgeable and thought provoking. By challenging us to consider alternative courses of action they have certainly developed and enriched each individual within our team.
Most importantly, we now have a strategy for coaching for transition, and a framework for discussion, which will allow HR to have far more valuable conversations and relationships with our entire workforce.
Thanks also to Rob and Alistair for modifying the workshop to our needs, and for providing a great range of tools for us to utilise. The learning support material provided is also an invaluable resource which will be continuously used by the team on a regular basis.”
Catherine Proud, HR Director, VicForests, a leading native forest timber harvesting and sales business in Victoria, Australia.
“The combination of the Lencioni model and the experience of Harbour Future Leaders and their facilitators meant that our team had the support and environment to discuss concerns and issues that previously had not been shared or communicated, yet were inhibitor’s of the overall team’s success. By the end of the program, I felt we had a more aligned, committed and cohesive team to when we started and feel confident the learning will be implemented and sustained”
Joanne Cracknell, Regional Learning & Development Manager, Abbott Australasia, a leading provider of health care products and services globally.
“Having worked with Harbour Future Leaders over the past years in various companies and on various projects, I have been continually impressed with their ability to deliver pragmatic and customised solutions to drive real change in organisations. The Harbour Future Leaders team truly listen to client’s requirements and then develop sound solutions which work.”
Myra Gossow, General Manager HR, Coates Hire, an Australian equipment hire company with over 200 branches
“Harbour Future Leaders’ team makes the effort to get to know our business, to know the terms that are used, to know the business flow. Time and time again, if its coaching, evaluations, group development or advice that we need, we keep on coming back to Harbour Future Leaders, regardless of the continuing effort by its competitors to gain our business.”
