Strengthening Executive Team Alignment

True alignment changes the way team members view their actions; they embrace team decisions and organizational actions as if they were their own. - The Work of Leaders (book)


Alignment From The Top Down Is A Critical Success Factor In Leading Effective Organizational Change

Having An Agile Strategy That Reflects A Constantly Changing Environment Supported By Consistent Messaging Ensures That The Change Does Not Break Down And Get Stuck In The Organization

You’ve got a critical strategic change to implement in your organization. You’ve worked with your executive team to define your organization’s strategy to include OKRs (Objectives and Key Results). Strategically you know exactly where you want the organization to go, and you know what you want to be different. Now you need to get your executive leadership team on board, aligned with the change and committed to making it a reality. How?

Alignment from the top down is a critical success factor in driving effective organizational change.

Change Essentials works with senior executive teams to set OKRs, assess their current level of alignment to the strategy or other organizational change, and their capacity to implement the change. Using a highly tailored, deeply specialized and integrated blend of:

  • 1:1 coaching 

  • team coaching

  • leadership-in-action observations and specific behavioral feedback

  • assessment tools

  • leadership and team development models and tools

We can help you identify with pinpoint accuracy where there is misalignment, and which leadership skills and competencies are needed to effectively lead the change. Then in a skillful, professional and structured way we help you close those alignment and capability gaps while also building greater executive team cohesion. The results include more measurable results, effective collaboration, stronger working relationships, higher trust, greater alignment and strategic clarity, and increased team effectiveness.
