YK is a sales director of a multi-national corporation. Recently, head office has restructured operations and is looking to promote YK to the post of regional director. However, there is one concern, a survey conducted by the HR indicated that at least 50% of the current workforce will leave if YK is promoted.
YK is an excellent salesperson, bringing in big deals for the company. His strong performance makes him the best contender for the regional director position, but his strength is also his blind spot.
Being goal-oriented, YK consistently brought in the numbers. However in achieving these goals, YK often neglected the people aspect of business. He would publicly criticise his subordinates for their mistakes, and engage in protracted arguments with his peers. He would even collect “evidence” of others’ missteps so that he may use it to put down others when needed.
Through a series of leadership coaching sessions, YK reaffirmed his leadership strengths through PEAKS and recalibrated his attitudes towards what it means to be a leader. Working in tandem with HR and head office, Morphos facilitated YK’s succession, reducing adverse employee turnover by over 98% to only 2 persons who left due to irreconcilable differences.
