Commissioned by Edgar Huber, President of Coty Luxury, Breakthrough supported and helped the division to achieve their post merger goals while simultaneously creating a new culture to set the foundation for their new future. Our intervention with the Luxury division was so successful that the Breakthrough methodology was then extended to other Coty divisions, including the senior leaders from Coty Professional, Coty R&D, Coty Supply Chain and Coty Consumer Beauty.
We tackled their concerns of clashing cultures by utilising our Wave One model across a variety of their different businesses to embed the new, unified Breakthrough culture. First, we delivered Executive Intensives to align their most senior leaders and to start their cultural transformation from the top. Secondly, we delivered Leaders Intensives to support an internal cascade of the new Coty-Breakthrough Culture, which was achieved by bringing together their top global leaders and brands including, including Gucci, Hugo Boss and Wella. Breakthrough then followed-through on transformation with Executive and Leaders
Accelerators, to strengthen, embed and sustain the transformation.
The Breakthrough experience, Programmes and Breakthrough Tools enabled Coty to overcome challenges such as fixed mindsets and ways of working. They embraced the Breakthrough Mindset which created a fresh culture to support their post-merger future. The divisions that worked with Breakthrough were also able to raise their performance during a time of disruption. In 2018 when we worked exclusively with Coty Luxury they grew by 6%, at a time when the Consumer Beauty Division had declined by 4%.
