The challenge

Network Rail set about creating a better railway for a better Britain. It needed to develop senior leaders capable of leading its challenging transformation.

With demand for rail travel increasing, Network Rail faced complex challenges. They wanted to become more commercial and effective quickly. Network Rail needed to break down silos and get 35,000 employees to innovate and problem-solve together. To make that happen, leaders needed to create a culture of collaborative working.

“The best thing was that it required leaders to work pragmatically on very real business challenges.”

The solution

Cirrus developed a comprehensive leadership development programme following an extensive tender process. The programme consisted of four two-day modules:

Tomorrow’s People: to increase self-awareness using emotional intelligence and 360 degree feedback

Tomorrow’s Relationships: to build quality relationships that create high-performance teams

Tomorrow’s Organisation: to innovate, problem solve and collaborate to address future challenges

Tomorrow’s Change: to deliver change and the bigger picture with leadership development plans

Business simulations enabled participants to role play challenging situations in a safe environment. Project work and coaching support helped embed learning in the workplace. A digital surround provided relevant insights, hints and tips.

“Thanks to Cirrus, there are senior leaders working much more collaboratively on problems that couldn’t be solved in isolation.”
