An aspiration is a prerequisite for a strategy. Developing a strategy without an aspiration would beg the question “A Strategy to achieve what?”. We have developed a unique method for supporting CEO’s in developing the aspirations for the business including Ambition, Mission, Identity, Vision & Values, by bringing both the head and heart to the table.
Leadership Ambition, Aspirations & Behaviours
Management have core beliefs and assumptions about all aspects of the business and their behaviours set the tone and standard for the culture of the organisation. These mindsets and their aspirations must be discussed alongside the required leadership behaviours if the business is really to lead and grow. We have worked with leadership teams to discuss their mindsets and behaviours defining interventions to change ways of working.
Strategy is all about where we play and how we win. It’s as simple as that but very often gets lost in its own complexity due to inexperience, laborious processes and concentrating on the wrong question. Very often organisations struggle to bring their teams together and agree on a joint strategy when sometimes a little external facilitation is all that’s required.
Strategy Mobilisation is about getting the strategy off the shelf and up and working. This is often the step left out of strategy development but is integral to success. We break down the strategy into deliverables, milestones and cross functional projects for scoping and allocation.
Strategy Implementation is about aligning the organisation to the strategy, motivating to make strategy everyone’s job and most importantly governing the strategy to make it a continual process. Sounds easy right...but in reality, 90% of companies fail to implement their strategy.
