Schneider Electric is the world's power and control specialist. Through its world-class brands, Merlin Gerin, Square D and Telemecanique, Schneider Electric anticipates and satisfies its customers' requirements in the residential, building, industry, energy and infrastructure markets.
Schneider Electric has developed an international program to ensure their upcoming leaders are equipped. 35 leaders from almost 26 countries come together each year for 2 weeks to start a 1 year project management, that when they go back to their respective countries will have to continue the project - virtually.
Tirian worked with these new leaders from differing cultures to:
- align their work practices
- develop a common language
- create a environment where people can dialogue between cultures to share best practices.
- create a shared vision and understanding / team identity and project plan
Each year the team was evaluated on their success and every time they were able to achieve their goals and in doing so develop critical leadership skills that will help them rise to senior positions.
"This program was fantastic, it was very interesting for me and will support me to develop better performance in a project work."
"This helped me obtain a greater understanding of the issues and best practices of working in a team."
