Ayala Corporation is the Philippines' largest and most widely diversified conglomerate with major holdings in real estate and hotels, financial services, automotive, electronics, information technology, and telecommunications. Asian Business Magazine ranks Ayala in the top fifteen of Asia's Most Admired Companies and ranks it number one in the property and construction sector.
Action Learning Associates worked with Ayala's CEO and President, Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala II, to design and implement a three-day leadership development experience to promote synergy and closer collaboration throughout Ayala's diversified businesses. In a series of these three-day programs, over 60 Ayala executives were flown from Manila to a retreat setting on the beautiful island of Palawan where they participated in team development exercises, visioning sessions, and community dialogue facilitated by Action Learning Associates. Poet, speaker, and author David Whyte led morning and evening inspirational sessions on creativity and the world of the imagination. The program resulted in a closer community and greater strategic alignment, while identifying and prioritizing a litany of initiatives to build synergy across the various Ayala companies.
