Collective Team Effectiveness
We Are Stronger As A Collective

Collective and collaborative teamwork is the ultimate competitive advantage. In a corporate world where there is a strong pull to individualism and silos, collaboration as a team is extremely challenging.

To help teams overcome this, Don helps teams identify barriers to their performance and craft a new, tangible and practical game plan to win as a team, rather than just ideas written on a flip chart.

How Don Müller helped build a united and significant executive team for leading African Bank, Stanbic Uganda Holdings Ltd.

The Challenge:

Working with a new business strategy, Andrew Mashanda, Chief Executive Officer at Stanbic Holdings Ltd, identified a need for a re-alignment of the leadership and culture at the organisation and engaged Don to help him achieve this.

The Solution:

Don helped Andrew identify his vision for his role, life and the legacy he wanted to leave at the organisation. He helped the CEO identify the recalibrations needed in the team, and how he would optimise his own leadership for this new assignment.

Don then partnered with the senior leadership team on a co-creation journey that integrated the organisation’s purpose, vision and refreshed strategy with the required culture shifts and individual commitments to bring it to life. The team then embarked on a team effectiveness
journey to optimise their leadership of the strategy and culture alignment.

The Impact:

“Don has helped me to dig deep within myself to find my story and how to mindfully craft my narrative as a leader. He helped craft a purpose for my journey and my vision of significance. Don also helped us as a team to discover the essence of our existence as a leadership team.”

– Andrew Mashanda, Chief Executive Officer at Stanbic Holdings Ltd
