Call of the Wild for Talis


After recognising that key areas within the organisation required attention Talis selected Call of the Wild to help design and deliver some of the key components of their people programme


Areas to be looked at were:-

  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Fair Deal/Effective Teams
  • Meaningful & Current Vision

The Programme

Following the  mission delivery exercise on values and vision it was decided that in order to realign teams and individuals behind great leaders, a short leadership programme should be undertaken to examine expert practice, delivered by a trusted training partner. A leadership gap analysis against values & behaviours was carried out and a ‘Mission Delivery’ process was covered in the training, aligning individual and team KPIs against the Organisation. Wellbeing opportunities for employees on the living wage were reviewed and initiatives brought in to support them.

All staff needed to be consulted and given feedback on progress. An 18 -month strategy of engagement was needed and training to support this identified and planned into the workforce development plan.

From the 4 objectives set out above here are is the summary of the leadership objectives:-

  • Analyse current styles of leadership
  • Adopt and apply effective leadership behaviours as a high performing senior team
  • Create an openness between senior leaders Measurement:
  • Pulse survey to review progress
  • Aligned KPIs for teams v’s organisation
  • ‘Buddy’ system measured by behaviour matrix
