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

MyHardWired™ Workshop
Today’s leaders should focus on leading in concert with the way in which they are “hardwired” – that is to say, naturally designed. Many leaders ignore their hardwiring instead of learning to understand and make it work for them. Utilizing the internationally acclaimed MyHardWired™ assessment, Leaders Advantage reveals and analyzes the leader’s strengths, how they relate to one other and how the leader acts or reacts under stress. The goal of this step is for the leader to discover his or her own leadership characteristics and to align to them with his/her team members.
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.
The Leader's Challenge Workshop
The Leader’s Challenge Workshop is a powerful leadership development experience designed to produce dramatic results. Our process has been proven to create “Team A” results through transformational alignment. Let our experienced professionals work with you and your team to begin this exciting journey.

Team Building
Senior Leadership Team Development – Once each member of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) complete Individual Leader’s Legend, the team meets back together for a discovery session and the launch of a strategic alignment throughout the organization. The deliverables from this dynamic will create the following:
a. A Team of Trust among the Senior Leaders
b. A Statement of Direction aligned to the Company’s Strategic Alignment
c. Individualized Leader’s Credos by each senior leader for dissemination throughout individual divisions and departments
d. Cultural alignment and relational leadership using the MyHardwired assessment throughout the organization
e. The creation of “normative behaviors” structured from the Company’s Strategic Alignment, yet tailored for individual divisions and departments
Strategic Alignment
In this step the team comes together to craft an organic map for the heart of the organization. This component of the process is critical for helping all team members to understand “who we are”, “where the business is going”, “what we really stand for”,” how we are going to get there” and, “how each team member fits in the process”.
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.
