"Filling the Senior Leadership Pipeline at Mars, Inc."

Target Group
This webinar is dedicated to both companies and L&D providers (Business Schools, Executive Education Centers/Consultancies).


In 2006, Mars was growing faster than their talent pipeline could develop senior leaders, and the disparity was forecasted to grow even larger over the next decade. They needed a way to accelerate their leadership capacity.

To make high potentials mission ready for their next leadership role, Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) and Mars committed to the Advanced Leadership Program (ALP). The Transformational Change Plan was at the heart of the programme. It served as a vehicle for participants to learn through the experience of leading an organisational change initiative over a nine-month period.

“Mars pushed us to partner with them in innovative ways,” says CCL’s David Dinwoodie, Vice President, Leadership Solutions. “This included undertaking applied research into Mars’ leadership ecosystem; devising a radically different approach to coaching and mentoring; promoting the value of learning through failures; measuring the financial business impact of each participants’ transformational challenge; handcrafting a technology platform; and leveraging a flipped classroom where participants guide their own learning experience in powerful ways.”

In this webinar, the partners will describe their unique approach, the specific challenges and the impact of this hugely successful collaboration, which was acknowledged with a GOLD Award at this years’ EFMD Excellence in Practice Award in the 'Talent Development' category.
