Fundamentally, leadership is all about getting others to follow the course you set with full competency and commitment. However, the challenge of a leader is that you’re often too busy to sit down and agree upon that direction or to lay out the strategy that truly focuses all your business goals.
In essence, a great strategic plan is worthless unless you’re able to engage your team in a way that allows them to understand your goals, accept the challenges, and commit themselves to do what it takes to achieve those goals. To accomplish this, it is vital that all your people and resources are aligned under the correct strategy.
Strategic Alignment, the Achilles Way, begins with a disciplined approach to organize priorities with an architectural mindset.
Achilles HR Professionals contribute insights, best practices and perspectives gained through years of service to business owners and leaders. And, we recognize that our entrepreneurial client leaders typically keep a long list of priorities, which is one of their biggest challenges.
The key is to determine which priorities must precede others as we build a strategic plan that goes beyond ideas. Once priorities are directionally correct and sequenced properly, we can organize people and teams around the levers they must pull to achieve them.
We work with our clients to focus resources through effective planning and communications competencies.
Communicating the idea is not exactly the same as true alignment and understanding. Good businesses go beyond the theory and apply the strategy in a tangible way that helps owners, drivers and key employees understand how they fit into the bigger picture. Real strategic alignment happens when your people truly understand how they can personally contribute to the goal at hand.
Through our Fractional HR approach, we are well positioned to engage holistically and to drive development agendas that fuel your plan.
At Achilles Group, we engage as a catalyst for the visioning and planning stages and serve as both a contributor and coach for a disciplined approach to equip your team, build engagement and execute on those plans. Initiatives must be balanced with workload and expectations, and strategy alignment requires us to identify and invest in competencies that equip the team to drive priorities. It also requires us to establish lead indicators, turn on the scoreboard and keep focus on priorities by giving attention to results.
