Case Study:

Empowering Global Leadership in a Leading Engineering Consulting Firm

The Challenge

A global engineering consulting firm was seeking a global partner to design, deliver and deploy a world-class leadership development program for their best and brightest leaders. Specifically, they were seeking to:

  • Participants with the critical business and management skills that support organizational culture and operations
  • Build a common language of leadership
  • Enable opportunities for participants to build a network of high-performing peers
  • Develop a more robust talent pipeline and leaders with the potential to move into senior roles
  • Focus on delivering long-term behavioural and skill-based improvements across management
  • Leverage technology for a streamlined and engaging learning experience catering to a global audience


Solutions Implemented

Our team collaborated with the client’s Senior Leadership Team to co-design and implement a customized six-month blended leadership development program and deploy in 3 regions across the globe over 12 months.

The program featured a range of components based on high-impact and relevant content topics to address the identified capability gaps through a blended learning design and organization-specific program elements. The program included one virtual instructor-led event, two in-person multi-day retreats, ongoing coaching support, peer learning group interactions, and select online courses. 

Key content topics included:

  • strategic thinking
  • leading diversity
  • client orientation
  • authentic leadership
  • high-performing teams
  • finance essentials
  • influence and impact, and more


The Result

Cinga partnered with key executives to design and deliver organization-specific program elements on Attracting and Cultivating Talent, Strategic Planning, and Finance Essentials to ensure alignment with the firm’s unique needs and goals.

  • 100% of participants said the program benefitted their development, that they felt more engaged, motivated, and better-equipped to support their teams as a result of the program.
  • 100% of leaders noticed an increase in engagement from their employee following program participation,
  • 83% of participants said their performance improved as a result of the program.
  • 100% of the cohorts and their managers reported an increase in capability of focus areas participants were coached on and all leaders surveyed noted saw participant improvement on leadership competencies.
  • Notable increases across regions in confidence on financial acumen were observed, identified as a critical development area, indicating program success.
  • Participants expressed appreciation for the opportunity to form connections with colleagues across the business, made possible through the program.
  • Executive leadership presence and opportunities to connect with cohort members were repeatedly noted as valuable components of the program.

Cinga continues to be engaged in targeted solutions to support a culture of mentoring and coaching within the organization. This demonstrates the program’s lasting impact on fostering continuous learning, skill development, and a leadership culture aligned with the firm’s strategic objectives.

In summary, our collaboration with the organization resulted in a tailored leadership development program that not only addressed capability gaps but also created a foundation for sustained excellence in leadership across diverse regions.

The success of the program is evident in the active engagement of participants and the ongoing commitment to a culture of mentorship and coaching within the organization.
