Strategy Execution

Failure is not an option.

Most organization have a strategic plan. But 70% fail to achieve their strategic goals. Why?

Organizational churn! What is churn? It is that wasted activity in organizations that absorbs time, wastes energy, and doesn’t produce expected results.

Organizations tend to attack these issues: they run programs for running better meetings, team building exercises, communications programs, leadership training, and so on. But the programs seldom seem to deliver the desired results.

Most initiatives fail to deliver because these issues are symptoms of churn, not the cause of churn. Treating the symptoms is like giving an aspirin to treat a fever. The fever may go a way for a while, but the underlying disease is not gone. The fever will come back.

Participants will learn how organizations can ensure that everyone in the organization is aligned and focused on what they need to do to help the organization be successful.

Key Topics Include:

  • Why strategies fail
  • The CEO role
  • The role of employee engagement
  • Accountability and why it matters
  • The Effective Point of Accountability®

The 5 Things Effective Managers Do Right

As executives and managers in organizations, we don’t need research to tell us that engaged and empowered employees drive success. The missing link in most people’s minds, is that engagement is driven by the effectiveness of managers. So how do the most effective managers manage? Managerial sciences literature and business self- help books have a multitude of suggested approaches.

Writers such as Elliott Jaques, Peter Drucker, and others have put forward the fundamentals of managerial leadership. Effective Managers™ has distilled these approaches into the 5 Requirements of Effective Managers. In this module you will receive an introduction to these five requirements with practical examples for how you can improve your team’s effectiveness today.

Key Topics

  • Managerial Leadership
  • Managerial Accountability
  • The Five Requirements of Effective Managers:
    • Planning
    • Doing value-added work
    • Setting Context and Boundaries
    • Delegating
    • Feedback Loops

  • The root cause of employee disengagement

Managerial Leadership During Disruption

There is so much information about Covid-19 coming from so many sources. There is very little about managing teams through such an unprecedented time of turmoil. Whether you are a CEO/Owner, Executive or Manager, your team members look to you for guidance.

Every situation is unique in so many ways. There is no magic formula. For most businesses, revenue has dried up. Expenses continue. The duration of disruption is unknown. And the recovery rate is uncertain. How does one manage in such circumstances, whether it is an organization, a department or a team?

The core principles for the best practices of change management still apply.

In normal times, when there is a change, the executives and managers can expect resistance. In normal times, the desired organizational outcome is known, and we manage a change process to get there. The big difference now, in these days of Covid-19, is that the executives and managers do not know the organizational outcome. Instead of trying to introduce dissonance, we are all living in a state of dissonance.

All managers, no matter what level of the organization, have Five Requirements that must be fulfilled to be effective. They apply, perhaps in different ways, but they are more important than ever.

Key Topics

  • How to use best practices Change Management in times of turmoil
  • Introduction to The Five Requirements of Effective Managers
  • How the 5 Requirements change in times of turmoil

Creating a Resilient Organization

Getting Ready for the Bounce Back.


Most organizations are successful. The unsuccessful ones don’t last very long! But even successful organizations have irritants that get in the way of reaching maximum success. In normal times these are accepted. Various measures may be put in place to try to overcome them. These measures are typically at the symptomatic level, so fundamental change is not achieved.

In times of turmoil, these irritants are magnified. The turmoil requires that everyone in the organization to be fully pulling their weight and to be focused on their value-added work. The irritants suddenly become hurdles and roadblocks.

What is one of the main irritants? The Owner is not able to focus on their value-added work because they are pulled down into their team members’ work. Why? Because their team members aren’t focused on their value-added work, and someone has to do it.

So how do you raise the level of work so you can be confident your team members are focused on the right work so you can focus on yours?

In the webinar you will be introduced to the fundamental concepts that every organization needs to have in place. Address these things now so you will be ready for the bounce back.

Key topics include:

  • Complexity of work – organization design, or the science of layers in organizations
  • Human Capability – talent pools, or how to match people to roles where they have the capabilities to work at that level of complexity (and particularly the problem solving capability)
  • The Effective Point of Accountability®- an accountability and authority model that right-sizes work and helps assure appropriate collaboration across teams
