Create and facilitate “occasions” during which division heads and senior managers from around the world would be encouraged to share ideas, work in team and simply get to know each other.

Groups of 15-20 business heads and senior managers were be split into smaller groups and assigned a set of contrived challenges that not only required them to “swap” information within their own group and with other groups, but also to collaborate to successfully meet assigned objectives. Each “swap session” was debriefed to extract common experiences and themes and relate them back to the participants regular business lives.
One successful trial program turned into a series that were conducted throughout the United States.Several divisions have since hired Fusion Associates to develop and execute similar workshops throughout the United States.

A formal debrief was conducted to elicit feedback from the group and relate their experiences, reactions and attitudes back to their work at the bank.
