MSCI Awarded the Technology Award by CLO Using Skyline Group International’s Coaching for Excellence Coaching Technology Platform

October 5, 2017 by SkylineG

Committed to increasing employee retention and engagement, employee alignment with the corporate culture, professional skill development, MSCI created the Accelerate Leadership Development Program (ADLP). The 4-5 month C4L component of the ALDP comprised the core of ALDP.

Annie Abrams, Vice President, Skyline Group Intenational, shared “Each participant, after debriefing their C4L 360s with their coach, and receiving alignment from their managers, selected three leadership competencies/goals of the 28 Skyline Leadership Competencies to focus on throughout their C4L program. Their online learning was then customized to allow participants to focus, with the support of their coach, on moving their selected competencies/goals from a foundational level to a sustainable transformational level of development.”

“Those who have participated in the Accelerate Leadership Development Program coaching program reported that their self-awareness of their leadership behaviors greatly increased and that they feel more confident about what they need to do to continue to develop as leaders. “ said, Mike Calamari, Global Head of Talent Management, MSCI. “ The program culminated with a summit in New York City this fall where participants came together to engage our Executive Team on ideas to tackle some of our most important strategic challenges. This investment in top talent is helping us build a stronger pipeline of future leaders. Skyline Group’s C4L allowed us to develop our leaders in a scalable and cost effective way.“

Skyline is partnering with our valued client, MSCI, on their Accelerate Leadership Development Program (ALDP)

September 24, 2017 by SkylineG

Selected MSCI leaders have been participating in Skyline Group’s C4L program and virtual engagement sessions hosted by Skyline Group. Skyline Group has worked with Key leaders within MSCI to design the summit and our team will facilitate much of it.

The Summit includes sessions on leadership agility, design thinking, a C-level forum and discussion - with all of this resulting in not only extending the development done during their C4X experience - but resulting in tangible business impact to MSCI. We will tie all of this together using actual strategic objectives provided by the C-Suite called their 5 Transformations and having the leaders at the summit, create solutions to bring those objectives to life for MSCI's business, employees and clients. All of this will be achieved while still focusing on integrating specific leadership competencies that were recognized as a focus for this cohort.
During this 2.5-day summit, participants will engage with senior MSCI executives providing them with an opportunity to drive their careers, network with colleagues and learn in a cross functional way. The participants will engage in interactive, applied learning in a challenging and exciting format, and reflect on what they’ve learned, bringing these new behaviors into their jobs, their teams, and to MSCI as a whole.

We are very proud of our relationship with MSCI and this program is a testament to the hard work and professionalism of our Skyline Account Executive for this account, Annie Abrams, and our EVP of People and Revenue, Stacy Shamberger. We also thank the many coaches who are coaching MSCI leaders and facilitating workshops for this program.

What do you think of when you think about an average woman in a leadership role? What qualities do they have? How do they act? What are their strengths? What are their weaknesses? Now, think about the same for an average male leader. What does their leadership style look like? What are their strengths? What are their weaknesses?

Chances are, your idea of what a male and female leader looks like is pretty similar to everyone else’s. And that’s because there are some strong stereotypes surrounding gender and leadership. In this engaging presentation, Thuy will present the components of what balanced leadership looks like and action and how this perspective provides a road map for today's leader.

When we think about leadership and gender, we associate certain traits with men and women. Women in leadership positions are great listeners, they’re compassionate, and they’re collaborative. On the other hand, men in leadership roles are competitive, assertive, and decisive. In reality, one gender doesn’t own certain leadership skills — there’s a masculine and feminine way of performing each skill. Learn to adapt your behaviors based on your audience, your approach and your gender, simultaneously.
