Leaders Align Around 5 Questions
All too often leaders underestimate the impact of alignment at the top and the damage caused by small gaps among members of the executive team.” –Patrick Lencioni
The Problem: Leading without alignment & clarity creates confusion. New leaders do not have the same history and perspective as long-time leaders. Leaders in operational areas have different perspective than administrative leaders. Volunteers and staff hear different messages, creating confusion. Lack of alignment saps energy and resources.
5 Questions: Alignment and clarity begins with answers to 5 simple questions.
Why do we exist?
Who is our customer?
What does our customer value?
How do we measure results, not just outputs?
What is our plan?
