High performing leadership only occurs when all leaders within an organization share a common vision and have the same mission. Being strategically aligned with broader organizational goals allows the entire team (or all teams) to work synchronously toward a mutual goal and common purpose. More specifically, an aligned leadership team communicates well, supports each other more proactively, avoids dysfunction, and is committed to a corporate culture that fosters continuous improvement; a culture that requires team members to commit to behaving and making decisions in a manner that reinforces an organization’s core values and business principles. Without these disciplines in place, valuable time and resources are wasted on issues that fail to productively drive performance, team members and their units work unintentionally and sometimes intentionally at cross-purposes, and the discretionary effort of managers and staff declines significantly.
Unfortunately, many organizations are slow to adapt to change as internal politics makes it difficult to reach consensus across all levels of leadership – even when the necessity for change is urgent. This is why many companies unknowingly lose momentum as they fail to change fast enough — allowing the marketplace and competitors to pass them by. The result: valuable time is wasted, resources are applied and financial investments are made without yielding sufficient returns, the organization loses its ability to remain competitive, clients become dissatisfied, and employees are less engaged.
Most leaders find it easy to identify improvement opportunities - due to either marketplace conditions and feedback or because they feel a need to be proactive. Unfortunately, the reality is that without strategy, change is merely substitution - not evolution. Having a great idea, but no strategy to execute such an idea always results in very little progress (if any) to be made. Leaders without the proper coaching and mentoring are highly susceptible to this risk; and once caught in that trap, are often regarded as being irresponsible, less credible, and incapable. For many organizations, preparedness begins at the top and this means that leadership – across all levels and departments – must have absolute clarity in purpose and focus; and must be aligned in strategic philosophy and goals.
