Red Nucleus is a developer of marketing & training software with employees distributed between offices in the USA, England and India. Typical of small and mid-size companies, they select managers based on performance, potential and domain expertise; they do not have an internal leadership development department. As they have grown in size and complexity, managers and individual employees alike requested leadership training resources.
“ Productivity increased by 9% with work-related stress decreasing by 35%”
To improve leadership behaviors and employee engagement, Red Nucleus deployed the LEADx platform, an app that combines behavioral science, artificial intelligence and expert content to provide personalized coaching and leadership development at scale. Participants had full access to the system and an action plan suggesting they complete the Big 5 Profile for self-awareness, and focus on micro-lessons related to giving feedback, one-on-one meetings, engagement and productivity.
Pre- and post-surveys measured user satisfaction and self-perceptions on various performance metrics. Managerial confidence increased by 9%, management behaviors that drive engagement increased 78%, productivity improved 33% with a similar reduction in work-related stress by 35%. A separate employee engagement survey showed an improvement in employee engagement scores among pilot-test managers by 32%.
