OEC Success Stories (Non Health Services)

National Corporates

Charles Sturt University

Over a one and a half year period (and continuing) OEC has provided confidential senior individual top executive as part of a publicly acknowledged program to enable the university to achieve its ambitious University Strategy Plan (2007-2011). Many independent validated measures of leadership and outcome performance have been utilised along with innovative approaches to program evaluation using system feedback loops.

The program has been delivered by Peter Webb and Paula Robinson and Ray Elliott.

Dibbs Abbott Stillman Lawyers

OEC partnered closely with the Chairman and all Partners of the long established firm Abbott Stillman and Wilson, to address a number of challenges within the partnership at the time, including improving the leadership and management skills of partners in their work with each other and with their staff.

The outcome of this project was a re-positioning of the firm through consolidation, improved team cohesion between partners, better customer-focused service delivery, and ultimately, firm expansion and growth nationally.

Simultaneous OEC partnership interventions took place at individual leadership development, group development and organisational culture development levels.

RMIT University

OEC was invited to deliver ethics training for all staff at RMIT university to orientate staff and equip them to understand, support and work with the recently-adopted Ethics Charter. OEC designed and successfully delivered this modular training program across all areas of the university, including with the department heads and senior staff. The OEC project team comprised Professor Ronald Francis and OEC Director Ray Elliott.

Bakers Delight Holdings

OEC successfully worked at the top of Bakers Delight Holdings for over six years from the late 1990’s during a period of rapid growth and expansion in this franchise group nationally. It assisted the early evolution of this company to it becoming a leading professional franchise operator through a leadership development program which involved individual and group coaching, as well as a range of organisational consulting partnerships.

During this period the Bakers delight Board was formed and relationships between regional managers and corporate specialists were clarified and aligned. There were many individual success stories as individual managers improved their leadership repertoire towards optimal profiles to enhance company performance, team collaboration and organisational culture.

Corporate Organisations – strata title tower blocks

The OEC Director has provided leadership and management services to some large city tower blocks as Chair of Management and Investment Committees during times of significant necessary restructuring to achieve better business outcome performances and sustainable financial futures.

One example of this is the successful asset diversification program to ensure future financial security and the development of asset resources to support the on-going work of the Victorian Council of Christian Education.
