Strategic clarity and alignment
Strategic clarity and alignment is crucial for organisational success. Everyone on a leadership team, at all times, needs to know the answers to the following six critical questions:
- Why do we exist?
- How do we behave?
- What is it that we do?
- How will we succeed?
- What is most important right now?
- Who does what?
We work with senior leaders to help them gain clarity and alignment around these critical questions. This usually happens via a facilitated quarterly offsite session with the leadership team. Our next step is to then work with leaders to embed the answers to these questions within every system or process involving their people to ensure cohesion and integration in everything your organisation does. The outcome is strategic clarity and alignment at all levels within the organisation.
We offer one-to-one leadership coaching and mentoring to help leaders expand their influence and effectiveness. The most common topics we explore with our clients are:
- Leadership resilience;
- Leadership best practices;
- Time management;
- Delegation, directing, motivating and developing others;
- Fostering teamworking;
- Running effective meetings; and
- Much more.
A team that is cohesive is more productive and high-functioning and:
- Makes better, faster decisions;
- Taps into the skills and opinions of all members on the team;
- Avoids wasting time and energy on politics, confusion and destructive conflict;
- Doesn’t waste time talking about the wrong issues and revisit the same topics over and over again because of a lack of buy-in;
- Creates a competitive advantage; and
- Is more fun to be on!
We work with teams to become more cohesive by mastering the following five behaviours of a cohesive team:
According to research done by Gallup, globally only 20% of employees are engaged with their work. This is one in five employees!
Disengaged employees tend to be more unproductive with a lower morale and this can have a devastating effect on the results of an organisation, its culture and its people.
Having an engaged workforce has never been more important than it is now. Organisations with high employee engagement tend to be more resilient and successful. The solution isn’t complicated either. From recruiting engaged employees to increasing and maintaining high levels of engagement with your people, we can help you.
Change starts with a conversation
What our clients say…
"We are making better decisions"
“This process is really helping, Liz. We have structure to our discussions, we are talking about the things that matter and we are making better decisions.
“A massive improvement. Thank you. We need to think about how we keep this focus going with your input. You are a star.”
Steve Lees, Operations Director, Dealtrak
"I was interested in finding a tool that would help our team grow in self-awareness and understanding of each other on a deeper level so we could work together more effectively.
“The Building Effective Relationships workshop presented by Liz helped us to do just that. We thoroughly enjoyed discovering, learning and sharing our behavioural styles. The profiles and discussions shed light on past experiences, especially in the area of effective communication. This insight is invaluable. Liz, your care for us was exceptional and the follow-up tips were very helpful.”
Dina Pestana, Every Nation London, Building Effective Relationships Workshop
"Through the rapid growth of the business we had lost some of the communication and trust in our middle and senior management teams, so we engaged the services of Movation Leadership to help.
“A day was spent building the foundations, learning from each other and discussing what is needed for us to be a successful driving force behind the growth of the business. It was so good to understand that everyone wanted the same thing, that we had just lost that connection with each other. Each of us had the same wants and desires for the business to succeed, but somewhere along the journey we had started to go off in different tangents which had caused some rifts to form.
“After spending this time together reforming and understanding each other better, we have come away with a much more unified output which is enabling the business to go from strength to strength. Thank you so much!”
Liz Tytler, HR & Finance Manager, Haven Claims
