How People Business assisted the client

This is an exciting time for GL Assessment – with plans for significant growth through innovation, acquisition, and international expansion (including China and the USA).  

When they reached out to us the GL Assessment Leadership Board were planning for the next investment cycle – the effectiveness of this team being key to growth. They wanted to promote a culture where people take greater responsibility to share the lead, where everyone has a voice and where differences of opinion are valued to drive good decision making and there is a healthy blend of support and challenge. 

People Business were asked to provide individual and team coaching to support the development of the GL Assessment Leadership Board in order to maximize their effectiveness for GL Assessment’s growth. We delivered one to one coaching and facilitated off-site events. The tangible impact has been clear, with the team recognising  significant benefits. 

What the client said

People Business have been an excellent support. We engaged Graeme and Andrea to develop a bespoke leadership and executive coaching programme.  As a PE company, the decision to partner with People Business has been a successful commercial investment, thanks to their broad expertise, responsive nature and flexible approach to delivery. The impact of their work exceeded our expectations. I would wholeheartedly recommend People Business and their services.
