Coaching change management at National Geographic

We were invited into The TV part of the organisation in 2011

The Issue:

National Geographic TV International were undergoing a massive change process  with the transfer of this part of the business to Fox Television.

Hazelbranch was brought in to coach the senior team through the change management process over a period of six months.

What we did

Hazelbranch met with the VP and management team every six weeks to ensure they had the skills and confidence so the transition was communicated effectively, goals and priorities set and the management changes were handled effectively, as well as helping individuals deal with their own challenges that the changes presented.  This included presentation skills training to key individuals in the organisation to develop capabilities ahead of the merger.

The Results

“I thought it was excellent. I learnt a lot and gained  valuable pointers. It gave me more courage to present  in front of 40 odd people! I think the key thing for me was just giving me confidence and taking away the fear of talking to the group through lots of interesting facts and approaches. I didn’t think there could be any improvements,it was spot on!”
