The most effective leadership teams are those with a shared vision, clear goals and objectives, and strong collaboration behaviors. But successful teaming is the exception, not the rule. Most executives develop themselves as individual leaders, not as peer members of a collective unit that behaves “as one.” And teamwork, especially at the top, is hard. So, we developed the Top Team Journey to be a data-driven, continuous development process that transforms groups of individual senior leaders into high-performing teams.
Using our proprietary, research-backed model and diagnostic, we establish a starting point whose data reveals a team’s specific strengths and weaknesses in terms of five team effectiveness behaviors: direction, discipline, collaboration, dynamism, and drive. We then use our extensive experience in learning design and delivery to guide you along a journey, a series of workshops, sprints that build on new behaviors, and feedback loops to measure and reinforce changes.
The program isn’t detached from the top team’s real work of running and changing the business: It’s integrated with and directly serves the work that the top team has committed to lead regardless of what it is—transformation, merger or acquisition integration, large-scale cost reduction, etc.
We know that teaming behaviors don’t change quickly—and we don’t expect them to. Our Top Team Journey solution rolls out over time and tailors itself to each team’s unique ways, means, and schedules for convening in person and virtually. Finally, we equip you with a roadmap, start you on your journey, help you gain momentum, and give you the direction and tools to stay on course long after our time together is over.
