Energy for Energy
Vega Energy started with excitement. The rush of building something new. Five years later, they reached an inflection point: Every day felt the same. After the initial
wave of excitement had settled, employees were wondering what was next. The entrepreneurial spark was fading. A few young employees departed and morale was headed on a downward trajectory.
David Modesett, the CEO, had a vision for the future of Vega, but it would require keeping people engaged by helping them grow. He wanted Aaron Berg to become
the future leader. Aaron was in his late twenties and, though willing and able, did not have the authority to lead; other employees would not follow him.
To begin the revitalization, we set out to build a trusted leadership cohort, equipped and supported to build the future. David and Aaron chose two other early employees:
Ashley, an accountant, and Chris, the head trader to pilot a training and coaching process.
Aaron, Ashley and Chris were honored to have been selected, they elected to dive into a new kind of leadership development, powered by emotional intelligence.
