Whether leading through a transformation, merger, strategy development exercise, or indeed “business as usual,” a CEO’s success depends on the top team and the entire organization being fully committed to the same purpose and plans. Investing time upfront in building alignment accelerates the pace and effectiveness of execution – something that sits near the top of every CEO’s wish list.
We help CEOs and senior leaders align their organizations by:
- Gathering data on current levels of understanding, commitment, and change readiness related to organizational or business issues among leaders and, if appropriate, the entire organization
- Helping the top team establish a shared view of the key issues and priorities for the organization in the context of its strategic or operational focus and required performance
- Collaborating on defining key solutions and implementation plans
- Delivering critical elements of the plans to engage and mobilize the next tiers of leaders and the rest of the organization – for example, tailored communication strategies, large-group events, and major offsites
- Developing the right metrics to monitor levels of alignment and the targeted business outcomes
