Work of Leaders (Vision, Alignment & Execution)

As a leader you have three fundamental responsibilities: You need to craft a vision, build alignment, and champion execution.

  • Crafting a Vision: imagining an improved future state that your team will make a reality through its work
  • Building Alignment: getting to the point where everyone on your team understands and is committed to the vision
  • Championing Execution: ensuring that the conditions are present for the imagined future to be turned into a reality

Of course, there’s a lot of skill that goes into each of these responsibilities. That is, in fact, what The Work of Leaders is all about. The true value of this model is that it lays out a manageable, realistic framework to guide the process. The goal is to provide straightforward explanations of where you might choose to target your personal development efforts.

Workplace dynamics are directly influenced by the leaders in your organization. Are you and /or your current leaders making it easy for people to show up and do their best every day?

Climate is important and research has shown a 28% positive impact on bottom line performance when a leader creates a good climate vs. an average climate. Discover what type of climate your people are living in and get clear solutions on how to make adjustments so they can deliver their professional best, every day.

Talents

When the Gallup organization asked people in the U.S.A., “At work do you have the opportunity to do what you do best, every day?” only 20% of employees answered yes.

That translates to only 20% of the people feel their strengths are in play every day. Each individual member of your team brings unique talents to the table. How can your organization identify and best leverage these strengths to ignite a high performing culture? What strategies, challenges and ideas can you use to bring out and focus the best of that talent in your high potentials? Look to MK Performance Group to help identify your workers’ best talents and design a way to showcase their strengths to create an engaged and more productive workplace.

Values

What separates the engaged employee from the one who is just marking time? The engaged employee gets energy from their work because it is in alignment with their values. Almost all high performers can easily give that extra effort because they are fulfilled and rewarded by their job, rather than drained by it. Understanding your values and the values of your team will help you put people in the right position, coach them to deliver their best and foster an engaged, high performing team. MK Performance Group can offer you a values assessment to help you identify and align the motivators that will allow you to create an engaged, high performing team.
