Red Ladder Consulting Case Studies


Project Management Skills Help Fortune 500 Financial Services Company Gain Momentum on Strategic Initiatives


Red Ladder was brought into a Fortune 500 financial services organization to help a team that was not gaining the momentum necessary to get a key initiative moving forward.

Red Ladder collected relevant data, completed stakeholder interviews, and developed a deep dive issue analysis. As a result of the analysis, core issues were identified and communicated such as:

  1. Inadequate team skills
  2. Resource gaps
  3. Missing organizational structures (meeting management, reporting mechanisms, executive engagement/ sponsorship)
The executive sponsor and team members were personally coached with encouragement and hard, constructive feedback. Short term recommendations and quick hits for improvement were identified and implemented immediately. In addition, longer term recommendations were made to address resource gaps and to realign the organizational structure including changes to roles and reporting relationships.

The result? The executive and team coaching helped to position the leader and her team for success and engagement. There was a dramatic positive change to the work culture and the entire team remained to move the initiative forward successfully. The project was delivered on time and on budget.



Executive Coaching Helps Shore-up Struggling International Financial Services Organization


Red Ladder was brought into a financial service organization that was going backwards and in danger of falling apart. Morale was low and frustration was growing. The overall organization was studied and the workload and efficiency were evaluated specifically. Red Ladder identified the core issue as the leadership inexperience and excessive workload.

Red Ladder provided executive skills coaching and developed a plan to increase individual confidence to achieve goals and be positioned for longer-term growth.

The result? The executive coaching produced necessary behavior changes and visible/ tangible results. Major changes and improvements were completed, the work teams became re-engaged, the executive did not resign, and the goals and results were achieved that were set forth in the strategic plan.



Management Consulting Helps Financial Services Company Deliver Results and Improve Employee Morale


Red Ladder was brought into a financial services organization to help two teams that did not work effectively together. The work was not done timely and the quality was substandard. Morale within both teams was very poor.

The teams were studied by using the Red Ladder copyrighted approach. Past work history was evaluated and individuals were interviewed to determine the source of the problems. As a result of this research, themes and trends were identified and communicated to key leaders.

Recommendations were made to create a value proposition, do team building exercises and reframe expectations for behavior while highlighting quick and easy hits for improvement.

Red Ladder helped to create a value proposition for the organization and facilitated the creation of team norms for behavior standards in the workplace.

The project was delivered on time and on target. As a result of Red Ladder’s consulting efforts, the teams and individuals, respectively, became more productive and employee moral improved.
