Robert A. Whitman, Chairman of the Board of Directors & CEO
The above words of Publilius Syrus have never been truer than today. Amidst the uncertainties of the pandemic, it is the bold and pragmatic qualities in a leader that can help people navigate. But to build these leaders who can steer towards sustainable development even under challenging times is a task easier said than done. This is where FranklinCovey is making a difference. With its proven technologies, the firm is building world-class leaders that aim to achieve results that require lasting changes in human behaviour, often the most difficult challenge any organisation faces.
FranklinCovey focuses on performance enhancement by working on the core behavioural traits of a person. Not only building leadership qualities, but the company also strives hard in developing leaders in three levels: Lead Myself, Lead My Team, and Leader of Leaders. The company believes that leaders of supreme qualities both in terms of character and competence are born when their interpersonal calibre is effective enough to yield out-of-the-box results time and again.
Growth, strategic thinking, objective alignment, and loyalty– FranklinCovey’s state-of-theart approach revolves around strengthening these four aspects of leadership roles. It proceeds with the aim to ensure sustained growth by keeping employees engaged that help organisations achieve critical business heights and make informed decisions. To this end, FranklinCovey fosters strategic thinking capabilities in leaders to identify areas where value-added decisions can be made that can help them to build loyal relations with their customers and related stakeholders.
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm
FranklinCovey’s Productivity Suite encompasses all facets of mindsets, skillsets, and toolsets required to enable knowledge workers and leaders to perform at their peak every day.
FranklinCovey educates ablebodied personnel to methodically invest valuable time, attention, and energy on the highest priorities and helps them design projects of the utmost quality. Increasing productivity, restoring work-life balance, developing maturity are some of the areas where the company is working hard and helps clients expand their business acumen to understand the intricacies involved in organisational processes.
To understand how FranklinCovey helps its clients to develop great leadership qualities, let us take a look at one of its customer engagement stories with PepsiCo Foods North America. The Learning and Development Team at PepsiCo Foods North America (PFNA), which comprises both Frito-Lay and Quaker businesses, saw the need for a consistent leadership-development program across the organisation.
With the prime goal to develop leaders that can utilise their potential and bring an empathetic difference in the future. Thus began the hunt for a reliable partner with highquality, flexible content that could customise and deliver both in-person and live-online solutions. PFNA’s search led them to FranklinCovey, who built a cross-functional program called CORE Leadership designed to taking content from the company’s All Access Pass®. The duo then internally developed content and aligning everything to three leadership values: Connect, Clarify, and Coach. Result? PFNA was able to shift from three 2-day, in-person workshops to nine virtual workshops within two months of the start of the pandemic.
This is but one of the many success stories that FranklinCovey has scripted along its journey so far. Moving ahead, the company will leave no stone unturned in capitalising and capitalising on the performance traits of eligible personnel into eminent leaders.
