Aligning the Team with the Future – Strategic Alignment
Equipped with a new understanding of one’s own values, expectations, priorities, “hot buttons” and idiosyncrasies, the leader now draws the team into alignment; first to himself and then aligning the individual team members to self and one another.
This second element becomes the strategic alignment of the leadership team aligning with the direction of the organization more closely; first between one another, then allowing for dynamic team synergy, precise organizational alignment and focused results
The Actual Workshop – a designated process for leadership to complete the MyHardwiredTM behavioral assessment and then assemble for a half-day session in which the individual profiles are blended in a unique team session of discovery and unity. This will occur before the Strategic Alignment retreat discussed below. Since this assessment is completed online, there is unlimited access to the profiles upon completion of this workshop.

Strategic Alignment – after the Executive Assessment Session, the key players will meet for the remainder of the two-days during which the foundation is set for the entire Strategic Alignment and brings the group into focus to help them work together more effectively. The products of this event are your purpose, values, vision, and mission that are then reduced into “roles and responsibilities” for each team member. The responsibilities will be delineated and timelines developed for achievement and incorporation into the operation of your working unit. The alignment will focus on accomplishing these goals as they are rolled down and translated at each level. The expectation is that the entire team will share and translate the products from the workshop at all levels of leadership and throughout the organization.
After completing this session, participants will feel a sense of enhanced teamwork and accomplishment. They will realize that they have gone far in building the foundation for future strategic planning and team performance. Specifically, they will be able to make the following statements with a high degree of confidence:
• We have common agreement on where we want our part of Mohawk Industries to go for the next several years.
• We know the major action steps to get us to this common vision.
• We understand what the mission is and how that mission is to be accomplished within our department.
• Finally, we will have crafted our specific roles and responsibilities within our group to more effectively carry out the shared purpose and mission.
