Zebra

Key Manager Retained Based on Performance Turnaround

PROBLEM

Like so many companies, Zebra had a skilled and experienced engineering manager who was on the brink of being fired because he was difficult to work with and was alienating other team members. He had been given verbal feedback and told to make changes but to no effect. The company was faced with the costly prospect of replacing this manager, incurring recruiting, training costs, as well as significant lost productivity.

SOLUTION

The difficult manager took the ThinkX Px-12 profile diagnosis, followed by 10 weeks (10 total hours) of Targeted Performance Coaching. Not only was the manager retained, but a significant performance improvement of 37% resulted in him receiving two raises in a 12-month period and promotion to the position of director. The company retained a valuable manager, the employee is thriving in his position even 3.5 years later, and the gross annual ROI for retaining this manager is an estimated $27,218 or more than $100,000 at the time of this report.
