Executive Team Alignment is the foundation for effectively leading growth and change of any sort and you will find that the process is the quickest way to create a strong foundation for managing strategy execution
The specific designed benefits of our executive team alignment process:
- A clearly articulated vision and strategy for dramatically improving results
- Team members who understand the vision and are committed to fulfilling it
- Specific goals that define winning and that everyone on the executive team is committed to
- A truly aligned executive team that is able to drive the organization to success as a united team as never before
- Role clarity for each executive that is most appropriate and takes advantage of their unique value proposition
- Distinguishing the culture of the executive team and the company, appreciation how the culture was created and defining specifically designed modification to the corporate culture that serve the vision and strategy
- Straight, honest and specific feedback from the consultant and other members of the executive team in a safe and supportive environment that has executives 1) know themselves better than they have ever know themselves and 2) feel more appreciated than they ever felt at work.
- All executives experiencing their own next level of leadership.
- Clear accountability for functions and results
- Role clarity for executive team members and often adjustments that make roles better suited to the individuals and the company
- Resolution of issues, faster decision-making and better follow-through and accountability
- Real teamwork among executives and employees, including the support to help others achieve success
- New tools and strategies for resolving the critical issues that leaders and team members have been unable to address.
- Setting up to empowering next level leaders to effectively lead operations.
- Contagious excitement and inspiration as well as a willingness to be accountable for achieving agreed-upon results
Without such alignment, the executive team can waste hours in indecision and debate – time that could be better spent implementing growth strategies, delighting customers, or creating the next big thing.
