Tongaat Hulett Starch

Tongaat Hulett Starch is Africa’s largest producer of starch, glucose and other related products. They supply clients across Africa and around the world with products refined at their 5 South African facilities.

Business challenge:

Understanding that in order to increase their lead as Africa’s only Wetmiller, they need to achieve superior and sustainable business performance. As such the need was identified to establish, institutionalise and nurture a coaching culture at different structures of the business in order to drive key strategic thrusts that will see the achievement of organisational, team and personal goals.

Nature of the engagement:

Grow Consulting was engaged to assist with the design and facilitation of a customised Executive Coaching Development Programme in support of a culture change and capacity building. This pilot program started with an organisational readiness assessment and leadership alignment process. This was followed by an integrated development intervention spanning 6 months for the identified coaches consisting of various content modules, supported by full psychometric and 360-degree profiling of each coach, external executive coaching support and facilitated peer group learning sessions. Further ensuring sustainability in the process, coachees were taken through their own development module prior to being paired and introduced to the coaches by means of a structured orientation and role contracting session.

Client quote:

The program was thoughtfully designed, integrated and comprehensive. Conducting the readiness assessment at the outset ensured that the content incorporated empirical data gathered from our staff. This was invaluable in helping us position the program and obtain critical buy-in from our stakeholders. The executives who participated reported that the program was practical yet profoundly meaningful. The Grow Consulting team was professional, resourceful and friendly. Overall the investment has been well worth our while.
