Skandia* is, by any standards, an inspiring company. Respected by IFAs and customers alike, known for mould-breaking ideas that evolve the industry it is a company that doesn’t just lead the game but creates it.
As part of our work with this distinguished company we have developed a close working partnership with Skandia International, the offshore and cross-border provider of investment solutions to the Skandia and Old Mutual Groups.
André Oszmann, divisional CEO takes an integral approach to developing his business and the people in it. Over a 2-year period we have worked in depth with this company from the leadership outwards helping them -
- Create new innovations in what they do and how they do it
- Engage their colleagues and customers in these new approaches
- Perform in ways that produce more results with less effort
- Sustain them as they pioneer the market, maintaining balance and ensuring the journey is a pleasure as well as highly effective
- Energise the whole company from the leadership outwards, using energy management and other techniques
We have achieved this through:
- Development waves for the leadership team
- One-to-one guidance for significant individuals
- WorkSmart innovations in how the company meets and works together
- Experiential conferences and offsites
During that time the company has grown in scope and scale, becoming a division in its own right. It has been opening up new markets and continually innovating, testing conditions notwithstanding.
