Since 2011, Mayvin has provided support and supervision to the Trust’s Organisation Development Team
The team has become more impactful and put into action specific projects to benefit organisational performance
“Mayvin are skilled practitioners and teachers who work hard to understand our needs and help us uncover what will be most beneficial to our organisation, to our team and to us as individuals” – Hendrika Santer-Bream, Change Manager
Our Action Research programme helped this organisation challenge the status quo around gender equality. We engaged women with leadership potential in an action-led process of personal development, raising their profile and presenting the Executive Team with insights and data on the barriers and solutions to women progressing to the top.
The programme resulted in visible changes in the way people work and the company is continuing to create even more opportunities for everyone to take on senior roles and show leadership skills. Talented female leaders across the business are creating the culture change they want to see
Mayvin designed and delivered an innovative leadership programme with lasting impact. By bringing people from disparate providers together in a community of practice we actively encouraged cross-business working, helped people discover new skills and build confidence in learning and leadership.
Participants of the leadership programme became more connected with others, not just in the community of practice but also across the business.
