Lack of Engagement
With everything you and your teams have to do, engagement sometimes drops off the radar as a priority. Yet, research indicates that an engaged workforce boosts the organization's performance.
How can I support you to build engagement?
The foundation of my strategic planning process is built on collaboration. I will seek staff perspective on the organization's performance, capacity, culture, and the priorities they believe will improve services.
I will also facilitate a collaborative session to clarify the vision, mission, and values. This process aligns everyone around the shared vision and helps them feel invested in the outcome resulting in increased engagement.
My priorities implementation process crystalizes the connection between staff's day-to-day work and the mission and priorities.
When everyone is clear on how their contribution moves the organization towards achieving its visions, they become engaged, and their passion for their work will be reignited.
I will provide you with tools, best practices, and strategies that will elevate your communication skills.
There will be a strong focus on managing change as ineffective change management is often the main perpetrator in destroying engagement.
Without overarching identified priorities and in the presence of all the pulls on your time and attention, decision-making can become disjointed.
Lack of organization-wide priorities means individuals set the priorities in silos.
How will I be able to assist you?
Identifying your strategic priorities enables you to establish a framework for decision-making and ensures decisions are consistent with the organization’s priorities, mission, and vision.
Successful operationalizing of your priorities includes assisting you with identifying evaluation methods that will accurately assess your progress and impact.
The insights gained from the assessment will be key to informing future decisions.
You will receive a framework for sound decision-making and tools you can utilize in making challenging decisions.
Lack of Accountability
Without defined outcomes and targets your team will lack the clarity, motivation, and structure required for high performance.
The lack of specific and measurable outcomes for accurate performance assessment leaves you without the tools needed to hold people accountable for their lack of contribution.
How can I support you to build a healthy and safe culture with accountability built into it?
Identifying specific, measurable, actionable, relevant, and timely goals provides you with mechanisms required to effectively and fairly measure individual and team performance.
I will assist you in breaking down the high-level strategic priorities into SMART goals that will clarify responsibilities and expectations. We will also review job descriptions to ensure they are consistent with job expectations and outcomes.
I will provide you with best practices and tools that help you to face conflict and hold people accountable while maintaining respect and empathy.
Resistance To Change
If a compelling vision and clear roadmap for achieving it are missing or not communicated effectively, resistance to change follows.
How will I support you to address this resistance?
My collaborative strategic planning process engages your team at the outset and realigns the teams around the shared vision, mission, and values. This creates buy-in and empowers you to build engagement.
The organizational assessment conducted during strategic planning will provide the insights needed for building a sound change management strategy into the implementation plan.
This will give you the tools you need to create a healthy culture and transform your organization into a high-performing one.
Leading and managing change is a time-consuming and detailed process. I will assist you with handling the intricacies of change management.
I will also provide you with the space you need to process your own needs and challenges as you manage the ups and downs of managing change.
A lack of clarity on the organizational direction or a misalignment between vision, mission, and values can pull people in different directions.
How will I support you to realign your teams?
We will review the vision, mission, and values to ensure it captures your work and culture concisely and accurately.
We will then build the strategic plan on this strong foundation and align resources with identified priorities.
Once the teams are aligned, we will facilitate coordination and collaboration across different departments by operationalizing meeting best practices and improved communications.
I will work with you to develop a personal vision, become a strategic leader, and align your leadership practices with your goal of building a high-performing organization.
