Organizations thrive or die depending on the strength of their leaders. Research shows:
- Organizations with the “quality” leaders were 13 times more likely to outperform their competition in key bottom-line metrics such as financial performance.
- The difference between the impact that a top-performing leader and an average leader has on an organization is at least 50% across performance metrics.
- Organizations with higher quality leaders were three times more likely to retain employees than their competition.
Unfortunately, more than 50% of the organizations state their business is being held back by the lack of leadership talent.
In our ever-faster-moving world, leadership is increasingly needed from more and more people, regardless of where they are in the hierarchy. Leadership is about vision, inspiring and motivating people, and successfully driving change. Today’s leaders make decisions in an increasingly unpredictable business environment and it’s no wonder the quality of leadership can make or break the sustainability of any organization.
Our strategic planning process is designed to translate an organization’s ideas into action. Through the incorporation of a team approach, this semi-structured process energizes the creative ideas of people while building strong commitment. In addition, the entire strategic planning process is a strong team building initiative for participants.
This strategic planning process is extremely flexible and can be accomplished over a series of sessions or at a planning retreat. Various methods are recommended to ensure feedback from relevant stakeholders, including staff, customers, and others. When appropriate, formal means of data collection (i.e., surveys, focus groups, etc.) are included to assist in the analysis portion of the process.
This process has worked in every industry and on every type of organizational change including strategy implementation, merger integration, culture change, lean transformation, scenario planning, rapid expansion, and SAP implementations to name a few.
