Context

The expectation from Mr. Anand Mahindra and the Group Executive Board (‘GEB’) is for all leaders to demonstrate five unique leadership characteristics that bring to life the brand pillars of

  • Accepting No Limits
  • Alternative Thinking and
  • Driving Positive Change

An established questionnaire was successfully providing leadership feedback, but not deep insights customised to Mahindra’s needs.

Approach

  • Identified and agreed on the parameters with the business as well as HR leadership teams
  • Worked with 10 plus unique businesses to understand their individual expectations from the 360 system
  • Designed instrument and report outcome and ratified with each of the businesses
  • Tech enabling and trials for use across Group companies.
  • Process for internal capability building

Impact

  • The Brand Pillars are expected to help Mahindra Group become one of the most globally admired brands by 2020. This system connects the achievement of this goal to every Mahindra leader
  • Integration of the Group with a federal structure with common threads of behaviour across companies
