You’ve held the meetings. All the priorities have been defined. Next year’s strategy has been drafted. Then, more emails and follow up discussions arose. Now, everyone (well, almost everyone!) on the leadership team agrees, is aligned and the annual strategic plan and goals are all set. Every employee knows exactly what they need to do to achieve the plan and goals and you have an execution plan that is flawless, right?
After 23+ years of working with leadership teams and helping companies craft their annual strategy and goals, this is where all the hard work and effort falls short. Getting every employee to be engaged with the plan, clear about their role and the specific behaviors they will commit to doing, and developing a “cadence of accountability” as coined in The 4 Disciplines of Execution* is what is needed to keep the entire organization focused and holding everyone accountable to those defined behaviors that will ensure your success.
For some of our clients having an execution plan has transformed their leadership meetings from the “Are we gonna make it?” attitude from previous years to “This is working!” This organization-wide focus and channeled energy transforms every member of the organization – employees and leadership is engaged and consistently delivering results because they don’t want to let anyone down.
Now you may be thinking that this sounds like a lot of work. Well, we are not going to sugar-coat this. Yes, it does take work upfront to create your roadmap but then the employees fully participate in building the execution and accountability plan. That how it works!
We can help accelerate developing your roadmap and will work walk side-by-side with you every step of the way. Let us partner with you and bring a powerful experience that transforms your 2020—for not only your people but for your organization’s bottom-line results.
