LEADERSHIP. STRATEGIC THINKING. ORGANIZATIONAL AWARENESS.
Strong leadership begins with a leader driving their own development while taking ownership for their thoughts, beliefs and actions. Higher value leadership brings strategic thinking and having a vision for the direction of the business. Organizational awareness informs a leader’s view on the enterprise so they can empower their teams to have impact across the organization.
We help clients to think about leadership in a way that not only builds their capability but accelerates their leadership wisdom. Our focus is on helping rising senior leaders move from effective management to inspired, enterprise leadership that drives organizational results. Through specially designed experiences and working sessions structured to explore development areas most critical to a leader, we help accelerate their growth, personal awareness, and wisdom over a shorter period of time.
GROWING STRATEGIC THINKING
The most impactful executives are not only exceptional people leaders, but also smart strategic thinkers. They understand how to win in the current competitive environment and make the right strategic bets for the future. Many senior leaders remain focused only on the tactical and immediate next steps for the business instead of truly taking a long-term strategic view. We take a disciplined approach to help leaders build muscle around how to think strategically, growing their ability to formulate strategy for complex organizations and understand the mental models and frames that influence individual and group strategic mindsets.
EXPANDING ORGANIZATIONAL AWARENESS
Leaders are responsible for driving the business through their people but often fail to consider how key decisions are made and the critical relationships patterns needed to get work done. The cost of these relationship inefficiencies translate into unnecessary conflict, misunderstanding and misalignment. We help leaders look deeply into their organizational networks to gain insights on how to actively shape their relationships to increase the scope and scale of their impact. Leaders are better able to align the work of their people across the enterprise and increase the sharing of information, ideas, and resources.
Underpinning all our work is data that generates insights. Leaders are not defined by their assessment data, but data is an important part of understanding how leaders operate and how they are perceived. This self-awareness can cut years off of a leader’s development time. We use a combination of online and verbal 360 feedback tools, as well as other data-rich assessment instruments to gain a comprehensive understanding of who a leader is. We draw out these insights into a narrative that provides our clients a clear understanding and focus for their development.
As part of a client’s development journey, we put together a customized Leader Kit™ especially for them, which includes carefully selected readings, talismans, relics, and other purposeful artifacts to inspire and advance their thinking and learning.
