Driving business results and strategy through collective, connected leadership.
Every organization that wants to be successful needs effective leaders. But for businesses facing significant strategic challenges, leaders must be able to drive change collectively, throughout the organization.
The ability of your executive leadership team to work together effectively to drive change and execute strategy across the business may be the most critical element in your organization’s success.
The uniqueness of executive teams creates predictable complications: “What is real value the executive team adds?” “Which is my primary team: my functional team or the executive team?” “How and when do successful, strong, independent leaders engage interdependently with each other?”
The intense pressures executive leaders operate under can also lead to counterproductive behaviors — turf battles, conflicting egos and a lack of alignment. Those behaviors can become threats to executive team performance that cascade through your entire organization, potentially crippling it.
However, when leadership teams are at their best, the positive effect is felt across an organization and seen in business results.
