Strategic need: To deliver the strategic objectives of the organization, World Vision identified they had less than half the people required who were ready to fulfill senior leadership roles. The strategic need of Potentialife was to close that gap by investing in today’s high-potential regional leads to ensure they had the resilience, non-technical leadership skills and lifelong-learning mindset required to lead the organization in the future.
Population: 50 regional leaders, who were instrumental in delivering World Vision’s mission on the front line. The leaders were also best placed to lead the overall organization into the future.
Impact: Every area of leadership behaviors on the SHARP framework improved. World Vision chose to reinvest in the program, and the leaders who had participated in the first program volunteered to become mentors for the next group, adding a new level to their leadership journey in the organization.
