Here’s an example of a 12+ month strategy advisory project to find a solution to a client’s challenge.

Situation

CEO assembled a 10 person team that he wanted to turn into leaders that are 80% as effective as himself and collaborate at a higher level based on measured results.

Objective

Enable CEO to reach his ‘WHY’ more accurately and frequently – to leave a legacy by helping others self-actualize.

Progress Metrics

(results to be ‘checked-off’ for program success by CEO and top 3 leadership team members)

  • Installation of principles and/or values tied to principles- into the existing strategic plan.
    – Principles guide the use of values- Decisions should help, not hinder upholding principles
    – Establishment of ground rules that help tie everything together
  • CEO and 3 leadership team members completed six months of strengths training.
    – Made use of collaboration tools
    – At least one obstacle to collaboration was removed that was historical, cultural, procedural or compensatory.
  • 80% of all leadership team members knew each others’ BIG WHY.
  • 80% of all leadership team members agreed on who the organization fits with, what the organization does and how they do it.
  • 80% of all leadership team members noticeably behaved according to principles, values, ground rules and the organization’s BIG WHY.
  • Value

    The CEO’s increased satisfaction, peace and transformation into a ‘winning coach’.
