Case Study - Global US Launch

Case Study: Global U.S. Launch

Strengthening Effectiveness of a High-Performing Global Team through United States Business Launch

Client is a global renewable energy company headquartered in Denmark.  During the launch of their United States business division, they hired Sarah Scala Consulting to help their US leadership group build team effectiveness with members from the UK, Denmark, and USA.

 

The Objectives of the Project:

We had the pleasure of working with Sarah for our away day in the amazing surroundings of Vermont. Sarah worked with us to plan a fantastic programme that really focused on bringing out the importance of teams.  Throughout the planning, Sarah really listened to us and understood our goals for developing our team.  I have no doubt we are a better team for her working with us and I would recommend her talents to anyone.
