Leadership is Tough but Rewarding!
Leadership teams have a difficult job. They are faced with pressures from customers, shareholders, employees, and the community. Navigating this complexity takes unique people - people who are willing to stand at the front and be accountable for the company's overall health.
I founded my practice to help senior leadership teams achieve their goals, emphasizing building strong leadership systems run by talented people living the life they want.
Companies rise to the level of the senior leadership team!
One of the primary functions of the leadership team is to establish and execute a strategy. When the entire leadership is aligned around a robust strategy, the company will naturally move towards their destination.
If the strategy is weak, or the team is not aligned toward a common vision, the strategy is likely to remain purely aspiration and gather dust on a shelf.
Good financial results don't happen by accident. The leadership team needs to ensure that all of the parts of the organization are aligned and performing at a high level.
The leadership team needs the tools, information, and practices to stay on top of the financial performance of the company so that course corrections can be made as needed.
Culture defines the 'personality' of the company, and it has a tremendous impact on the long-term health of the organization. The senior leadership team creates the culture through their words and actions.
When senior leadership is aligned and committed to building the company based on a core set of values, culture can be a strategic weapon.
If the culture is unclear, or worse yet, toxic, culture can be a cancer that kills the company.
