Nick aged 52 was MD of the UK subsidiary of a Swiss electronics firm. "But I can do the job in 3 days a week: bored out of my brain: life is passing me by” was how he put it!
After we met and I had explained how Proteus could help, Nick signed up for a full open ended Career Development Programme - we work with you until you are placed.
The aim was a more challenging senior executive role, where he could use his highly developed strategic thinking skills to the full.
However, three months and several offers later, he and his wife decided they didn’t want to move from their beautiful rural home.
Quandary! We spoke at length and he decided to use the on-going mentoring phase of his programme to the full: we worked together to change the nature of his relationship with the parent company: to drive the company to greater success.
Within 3 years he increased t/o by 250%, broadened the product portfolio, secured an enhanced salary package and profit share and was really feeling fulfilled.
The Career Development Programme could be said to have “failed”, but Nick released Proteus from its obligations and is one of our strongest advocates in championing our methodologies and level of professional support.
