How Can Sirota Leadership Advisory Help You?
Since our founding in 1972, our data and experiences consistently point to culture as an important mediator between strategy and execution. While leaders play a critical role in all three, a weak culture will trump a good strategy at every turn.
Culture flows from leaders and the values they establish. Employees will be attracted to corporate values that promise to provide for their needs as people and performers — while delivering the right products and services to the marketplace and community at the highest level of quality. It is easy for most employees to distinguish between a money-culture (in which the only goal is profit) and where they represent a major expense to be controlled; and a customer-culture that focuses on delivering what customers want (at the right price, at a fair profit, etc.) in partnership with employees – their most important asset.
What type of culture does your organization espouse? What type of culture do your employees actually experience?
Sirota’s Leadership Advisory group helps senior leaders overcome intangible obstacles to strategy execution and performance by establishing highly effective cultures and executive teams.
We believe in values-driven leadership. We know that managing is not enough; one has to lead with a moral argument. While the best companies often have an expressed set of core values or enduring principles that state what the institution stands for (or should), it is often a lack of executive alignment, and weak or poorly practiced values that are the root cause of many corporate ills (Turnover, Customer Dissatisfaction, Inefficiency, Low Productivity, Marketplace failures, etc.).
So, if you have developed a business strategy that isn’t executing as planned our senior leadership advisors can help! Our three step approach will help you uncover the cultural and behavioral obstacles to strategy execution and performance:
- Step 1: Assessment (Where are the action opportunities?)
- Step 2: Acceptance (Building executive commitment to the proposed actions)
- Step 3: Action (Driving action)
Typical areas of action that our approach will address include:
Values Realignment, Culture Change, Conflict Resolution, and Executive Culture Coaching.
