The company’s largest manufacturing site in the deep south of the United States had significantly underperformed despite recent capital investments in physical improvements. A turnaround effort identified a cultural clash between the site leadership and their employees causing inefficiencies and ineffectiveness. The resistance to change from tenured, mid-level leaders further complicated the situation, making it imperative to address the cultural dynamics.
To tackle this challenge, our team acted as executive search consultants recruiting a new site leader. We secured a diverse woman from an industry-leading company and assisted in moving her family to the area. Recognizing the importance of a smooth assimilation into the company culture and effective change management, we implemented a comprehensive program for the new leader and her team.
Medallion Partners ensured the new leader’s successful assimilation and fostered a positive cultural shift by implementing a comprehensive program that included assessments, individual coaching, and an in-house retreat. This work resulted in drastically improved performance, enhanced team dynamics, and a more inclusive organizational culture.
