Do you, as a leader, have a certain vision on what’s ‘done’ and ‘not done’ in the company? But do your employees have a different view, causing everyone to follow different rules?
Your ideal doesn’t align with reality.
What kind of leader you are and what you expect from others isn’t clear. Not to yourself and not to your team members.
This has consequences:
- People act based on their own values and norms because the company’s expectations are unclear, leading to internal chaos and unrest.
- Apparent trifles are left unaddressed because you don’t know how to handle them, leading to a toxic work environment.
- Misunderstandings arise, leading to confusion and uncertainty within your team.
- The company’s identity is lost, causing job applicants and potential customers to lose motivation and interest.
- Top employees leave due to this unsafe feeling.
Sounds familiar? It can be different.
- A clear identity for employees, investors, job applicants, …
- Crystal-clear agreements: everyone knows what is expected of them
- Internal peace: rules and agreements are not guesswork
5 Steps to aligned leadership
Defining the leadership framework
What kind of leader do you want to be? How do you think leaders and team members in your organization should behave to express the mission, vision, and strategy? How do you concretely apply the core values of the company? We document this in the leadership framework.
Assessment of the company culture
How is the company culture expressed today? Are there specific situations that need to be addressed? What image does the company and its employees convey and why? We map this out through an in-depth survey with employees, covering aspects such as core values, trust, roles and responsibilities, collaboration, and handling change.
Applying the leadership framework
Based on the company culture assessment, we immediately see where our framework and practice do or do not overlap. In which areas is reinforcement needed? Which topics require clear agreements? What values and behavioral norms need to be established?
You’re never alone in this. Throughout this journey, I will continue to guide you with advice, questions, and a critical eye. I’ll be your sounding board and, yes if needed, play the devil’s advocate.
After our journey, we evaluate: are the agreements crystal clear for everyone? Are our efforts paying off?
These are the 5 major pillars of this leadership program. We personalize it based on what you need.
Can you already feel the impact this would have on the atmosphere and productivity in your company?
Clarity is kindness, always.
