Michelle has been with Twilio for nearly four years, supporting “Twilions” — as employees are affectionately known inside the company — through tremendous growth in both revenue and headcount. “We’re looking at creating a great employee experience at Twilio. We want to provide Twilions with the tools, resources, and experiences they need to innovate, scale, and grow.” BetterUp’s whole person approach was a key part of Michelle’s evaluation process. Most leadership development approaches focus on teaching people what to do. But what they miss is an equal focus on how to be. In contrast, BetterUp’s approach addresses the psychological resources that allow leaders to manage themselves so they have the capacity to manage others. This includes the ability to remain resilient, have a growth mindset, maintain a sense of control, and take risks. Evidence shows that these resources need to be in place for sustainable leadership habits to take root.

While this might be a startling prospect for some organisations, the best approach is to embrace this shift in personnel and train your Millennials to be the managers and executives you want – and need - them to be.

The leadership of a new, marquee pharma

certainly marquee, but not new. As the highly publicized
spin-off of a global health services conglomerate, the
company began life with $18 billion in annual revenues,
an established product pipeline and instant
membership in the S&P 100. Reliant on the back-office
functions of its parent, it needed to quickly acquire the

And as KPMG’s delivered tangible results, something
