TWI takes construction firm to next level of development
“Our interpersonal communications improved out of all recognition and we developed an agreed set of objectives to carry forward our business to the next level of its development.”
Andrew Postlethwaite, Pre-Construction Director, Walter Lilly & Co Ltd
Walter Lilly is a medium sized regional building contractor from the South East of England with over 150 staff and £70million annual turnover. They wanted to enhance Boardroom communication in order to work as a unified team, better equipped to drive business development. They recognised that communication could be improved and at times poor assumptions regarding mutual understanding between the long standing members of the Board existed.
As Managing Director, Ron Bates explains: “I considered we needed someone to facilitate our discussions together to give us guidance in what we would find hard to tell each other after so many years of successful business achievement.”
With the help of TWI’s Boardroom Facilitation, the Directors at Walter Lilly are now achieving their unified goal. In the words of Managing Director Ron Bates, that goal was: “the creation of a successful business that is a pleasure to come to work for each day.” The Board of Directors at Walter Lilly have seen a number of key breakthrough developments
As the Managing Director concludes: “we are all pleased with the outcome. We are better managers and better able to talk together and with others. I do not think we would have achieved so much as quickly without Tom Flatau.”
