In a world of continual disruption, organizations must be extremely agile, able to adapt to constantly changing circumstances and more complex business challenges. Almost every organization, large or small, asks the strategic question:
“Where do we need to be in five years?”
Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent with consultants to address areas such as Brand Loyalty, Innovative Strategies and Customer Satisfaction to promote long-term thinking. Yet even the most innovative strategies often fail to get implemented because we fail to ask the most important question:
“Who will lead us to this idyllic future?”
We conducted ALP courses at 20th Century Fox for more than 15 years, touching about 200 executives and future leaders. The results have far exceeded other types of Leadership Development, and we believe contributed to reduced turnover among these key employees. Employers who invest in and develop their leaders generate tremendous loyalty and commitment to the organization’s mission.
Focus on bringing the group together and building a sense of accountability and responsibility for the group as whole.
Drive team members to identify their individual value and demand the best of themselves and each other.
Assign projects to address real-world company and/or industry challenges that the team presents to senior management.
