If you want a high-performance organization that is able to produce extraordinary results, then leadership and leadership alignment matters. An organization’s leadership shapes and influences people and the nature of their interactions within an organization. Take a look at any major accomplishment and examine the key ingredients to success. What do you find? There is strong, effective leadership and a fully enrolled, highly committed team.
High-performance organizations rarely occur naturally. They must be created, nurtured, and managed. This takes leadership at all levels. Exemplary performance is a function of exemplary leadership. Leaders throughout the organization must learn how to create and lead more effective teams.
While there is an enormous amount of material written on the subject of leadership, there is comparatively very little written on how to become a leader. The lack of explicit, actionable leadership principles and specific leadership practices creates a major obstacle to people who want to learn to become effective leaders.
Strategic Momentum’s Leadership Transformation Program explores leadership from a relatively new perspective. The program examines the common understanding of leadership and develops a new, more powerful, interpretation of leadership that is completely actionable. While the traditional “Leadership 101” type programs focus on the “how to” of leadership and how leaders should behave, this program focuses on the “Being” and “Doing” of leadership.
Building a strong, fully aligned leadership team positively impacts the team’s ability to cooperate, collaborate, build relationships and trust, innovate, align, and manage the commitments necessary to achieve breakthrough results, even in light of the inevitable breakdowns.
