Leadership Teams Driving Business Success
Wednesday, January 27th, 2010
One of the frustrations a leader can have is when team members focus predominantly on the results of their functional areas and less on performing as a leadership team and achieving organisation-wide objectives. A senior management or executive team needs to deliver more than just divisional results. They also need to drive the organisational agenda and objectives. Helping them to achieve that organisational focus is often critical to organisational success.
To operate at a high level, senior teams need to be clear on, and engaged in, the strategic outcomes of the organisation. Leadership team success means ‘rowing in the same direction’ and supporting one another towards achievement of these outcomes.
At Stepshift we work with senior teams to help them identify and engage with their critical business outcomes and to agree the expectations they have of each other (in terms of behaviour and action) to achieve them. When leadership team development allows all members to be on the same page and committed to an agreed course of action, leadership team performance improves and organisational success follows.
