In late 2019 Laws of Attraction were appointed by ZeniMax Media to deliver a 15-month leadership programme. However, due to the pandemic that hit the world in the early part of 2020, our People Director, Stephanie Corking, worked with the leaders and HRD of ZeniMax Media to adapt the original programme into a bespoke masterclass focusing on Leading Change to ensure the program was kept alive.
Stephanie and the team at Laws of Attraction are delighted to have worked with the Zenimax leadership team to help them develop their leadership behaviours, communication styles and change management skills to lead an exciting transition to join one of the largest organisations in the world, following the recent announcement that Microsoft has recently acquired Zenimax, which has meant the 'leading and managing change' programme is an ever more critical focus for the global MDs and senior leadership team. Read more about the acquisition in this article on 'The New York Times' website.
The feedback was very positive, (see the below video testimonial from Sean Ratcliffe, Director) and with more online learning planned, we can reengage, reignite and refocus the leaders to ensure they still get the opportunity to learn and develop.
Aurelia Genuyt, European HR Director of Zenimax also feedback commenting...
“Learning about the curve change and change management best practices in a context of acquisition has been a great leverage for us as a Senior Leadership team to better understand our own reactions and those from our teams. It reminded us where to focus our energy and who to influence in order to lead our teams through this important transition.”
Here's an excerpt from the masterclass that was facilitated by our People Director, Stephanie Corking. Stephanie also talks about how integral change management is as a skill for leaders in her latest article, Leading Change.
