William Hill has selected leadership and coaching specialists Full Potential Group (FPG) to deliver a highly-targeted coaching to maximise performance programme to its leadership community.
Following recent management development reviews, William Hill identified coaching as part of the solution to assist them in creating a fundamental shift in perspective amongst its leaders to embrace a whole new level of management capability, transforming focus from operational ‘task’ to more strategic behavioural leadership and development of people.
The programme will initially involve a group of key managers from across the business. Senior leaders will also be up-skilled to help create powerful role-models who will be fundamental catalysts in driving results through people at William Hill.
David Mills, management development manager at William Hill, said: “William Hill is renowned in the gaming industry for developing its people. We want to create a coaching approach to leadership but without compromising the results-driven style which has made William Hill so successful.
“What we liked about Full Potential Group was their highly-pragmatic, instantly useable ‘coaching in the moment’ non-theoretical approach, firmly linked to business results, and their pool of experienced business-focused coaches. FPG are a great fit for William Hill.”
