Strategic Alignment

Jack Welch GE“Are we measuring and rewarding the specific behavior we want?”

- Jack Welch

The former Chairman and CEO of General Electric worked very hard to get the best from all of his employees. By most accounts he was very successful at doing it.

Do you measure and reward performance effectively and in a way that aligns with your strategic objectives?  Do you feel like you have good people, but fail to get their best effort?  Can you articulate a clear, shared vision and strategy for achieving it?  These are a few of the tough questions to consider, especially in the challenging times of this decade.

All great organizations share several key elements:

  • A clear, shared strategic vision and plan for the future that is understood by all employees
  • A process to manage the business strategically every day
  • A healthy, effective leadership culture that releases the full potential of its people
  • Productive practices that include efficient processes, clear goals, follow-through and accountability

Creating a healthy, effective culture is one of the challenging problems for any organization and often we struggle to take appropriate measures to improve.  Atlantic Leadership Group offers a proven, research validated approach to dealing with this challenge and can help you get the most from your people.

Are You Executing your Strategy?

We have been in challenging times and most likely will be for some time.  In any market, sustainable high performance requires a sharp focus on strategy execution. The evidence is clear:

  • 73% of companies that outperform their peers have a formal process for communicating strategy to employees.1
  • Strategy execution is the #1 concern of CEOs worldwide.2
  • Only 12% of companies successfully execute their strategy.3

Is your organization operating by a strategic plan?  Are you integrating strategy and operations to create sustainable breakthrough performance? Will you be successful today and in the future?

Achieving Manager Study

The Achieving Manager Study - Breakthrough Research

Peter Drucker“If we know one thing today…it is most managers are made, not born…there has to be a systematic work on the supply, the development, and the skills of tomorrow’s management…it cannot be left to chance.”

- Peter F. Drucker

The Achieving Manager study is based in solid science and shows definitively the common behavioral characteristics that the top achieving leaders employ to set themselves apart from their lesser achieving colleagues. These leaders were
most highly valued by their respective companies and were promoted faster and given the most responsibility for managing their organization's assets and people.

It proves leadership is not accidental.

There is a model for effective leadership
that exists and it can be modeled through programs
