HYPERGROWTH RACING TO IPO

AT A GLANCE

Hypergrowth company heading towards IPO. Our mission was to upskill their leadership, enhancing their ability to rapidly scale and secure Series B funding.

KEY OUTCOMES

$110 MILLION

Series B Funding

29% REDUCTION

in burnout

76% INCREASE

In leaders stepping up

CHALLENGES

Fast growth means growing pains. This company faced issues with leaders not stepping up as it scaled. This led to reduced efficiency, ineffectively distributed teams and a lack of mentorship. There was a high prevalence of burnout and imposter syndrome, particularly in younger colleagues.

RESULTS

1

EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT LEADERSHIP

Leaders were better able to identify the struggle to ‘keep up’ and keep engaged in the growth spurt the hypergrowth was going through.

2

BURNOUT REDUCTION

The combination of our Untapped Accelerator (our version of a coach) and our pre burnout self awareness AI enabled us to quickly identify with people when they were at risk of falling into burnout.  Preventative action was taken and full burnout avoided.

3

CONFIDENCE BOOST

Leaders were able to admit their sense of worry about lack of experience in leadership roles. Untapped Accelerators worked closely with leaders to deliver significant confidence shifts in only 6 months.

FTSE 100 AND MILLENIAL RETENTION
