Impact with Integrity

Agile transformation starts from within

We are WIL, a global leadership development and research group. Our purpose is to help leaders and their teams mature into “wiser decision-making”. We are convinced that this is the only true way to address the challenges we face as human beings - at work or home and as global citizens.

We support leaders and organizations to foster presence, collaboration, resilience & performance.

We train mindfulness-based emotional intelligence grounded on research in neuroscience and organizations, ultimately delivering extraordinary business results.

 

THE CHALLENGE

The unprecedented social circumstances of growing

New Work

Environments

Isolation, Burn-out, Disconnection

More than ever daily business is full of uncertainty and complexity. The outcome of a decision taken today is not possible to foresee and is difficult not to overreact to yesterday’s developments. This places extraordinary demands on leaders in business and beyond. Even before home-office heavy times you could observe this:

 

THE EFFECTS

 Stress 

Work is the number
one cause for stress
in Germany (TK-Stressstudie, 2016) 

 Bad Communication 

70% of leaders report regularly being unable to be attentive in meetings (Institute for Mindful Leadership, 2010)

 Low Engagement 

71% of employees are disengaged, leading to lower personal productivity and company success (Gallup Survey, 2018)

 Financial Cost 

More than 77 billion Euro are the economic costs of internal termination (Gallup Survey, 2018)

 

THE SOLUTION

For example for eCG, the Transformational Leadership Program was a true success story. The feedback from the participants as well as the measured impact of the intervention on the defined KPIs show remarkable results.

To measure the impact of the program, all participants are invited to a self-assessment survey. Averaging the results from four journeys conducted 2019-2020, the evaluations show remarkable results on the defined KPIs.

METHODOLOGY: The uplifts are the result of a survey that participants of the Mindful Leadership program at eBay Classifieds Group conducted in collaboration with Wevolve completed before (t0) and after (t1) the program. The questionnaire comprises 12 questions with a 5-point Likert scale from 0 (never) to 100 (always). The results have been aggregated to an overall uplift and to 4 specific KPI clusters.

"WIL did a fantastic job in giving the Mindful Leadership Training to my colleagues and me at Bombardier Transportation in Berlin. What makes them stand out? It is this rare combination of scientific knowledge, practical business experience and a high level of empathy and emotional intelligence. They are just excellent in what they are doing, because they are so passionate about it."

”I was really surprised about how I got to know my colleagues through the Mindful Leadership program even though I’ve known them already for a few years now. I learnt to connect on a much more personal level with them. Besides that, I learned a lot about self-leadership and how to implement it into my daily life, which gave me a whole new perspective on my inner self.”

HR LEAD Regional East in Jobsharing, DB Netze

"I was really impressed by the virtual training on "Mindful Leadership" - how the trainers managed to create such an engaged, intimate and warm atmosphere. It played a special role how they worked together as a team and with what openness, calmness and clarity they picked up the team and the skeptics on the topic of "Mindfulness". My team really blossomed - they participated great and were very attentive to each other. Even today, half a year after the training, we still use some of the tools to keep calm and recharge in the hectic business of work."

THE FEEDBACK

“What I enjoyed most was the interactivity, feeling of community as a save place, as well as the integration workshops to deepen the level of making habits.”

“To learn how to calm down in stressful situations and be in the here and now.”

“Best about the opportunity to engage with this important topic together with my colleagues. Small practices that are easy to integrate into everyday life.”

“I loved about the program the trust which was brought up to speak open and honest."

THE KEY

The key is to cultivate a mindset that allows to navigate with a high level of awareness and decisiveness to adapt moment-by-moment, staying connected with one’s own principles of integrity and the team supporting each other along the way. Our Leadership Solutions train this skill set. They formats range from keynotes and workshops to extended programs, as well as Search Inside Yourself Trainings, developed and tested at Google. Depending on your demand they can be facilitated standalone or seamlessly integrated into existing leadership initiatives. 

THE APPROACH

The Mindful Leadership Program is based on the premise that successful co-creation and leadership begins with observing oneself. This increases self-awareness providing the opportunity to lead oneself in the interaction with others and come out of reaction mode.

Feedback

The seminar touched me very deeply and intensely - although it was remote.

I learned a lot about myself.

The thought to stop, to take a breath, to concentrate on one issue and to try to illuminate it from all sides - without digressing again and if I do, to become aware of it and to concentrate again.In my hectic and fast-moving everyday working life, this is a very valuable asset.

Most valuable for me was: The realization that Emotional Intelligence can contribute to - being happier - appearing more confident - being able to lead intelligently with empathy
