The Strategic Leadership Alignment Program

PURPOSE:

To transform a leadership team’s ability to think, act, and work individually and collectively to achieve significantly increased performance, results, and satisfaction. The Strategic Leadership Alignment process provides the forum and opportunity to elevate the individual and collective ability of a team to think and work together in ways that liberate energy and optimize effectiveness. It is designed to help the team members understand and manage the internal factors influencing their effectiveness and the impact they have on others. The program will help the team increase the quality and quantity of its results – by working smarter, not harder through increased self-awareness and self-management and will improve the team’s communication, alignment, and mutual support.

OBJECTIVES:

The leadership team will:

  • Receive an assessment of its leadership and management style and/or skills and learn how they effect the members’ ability to work together with others
  • Expand its understanding of the key attitudes and behaviors related to high performance and increased satisfaction in the workplace
  • Enhance its ownership and accountability for issues and results
  • Create personal development plans to improve the members’ individual effectiveness
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics and key factors governing the team’s effectiveness
  • Significantly increase the levels of openness, trust, and respect among team members and noticeably decrease behaviors that block the ability to work together effectively
  • Visibly improve communication, cooperation, decision making, and problem solving
  • Achieve alignment on a set of high-performance operating principles
  • Develop understanding of core values and principles underlying a high-performance culture
  • Develop action plans to address key, “burning” issues impacting organizational performance

METHODOLOGY:

Each participant receives a 360 degree assessment of performance effectiveness, style, and/or skill and one-on-one interpretation and discussion of the data.
