Leading others to align with a goal is an ART – and you can learn how to do it.
Imagine being one of those leaders who everyone wants to be around, who’s compassionate and kind – and who also gets things done.
They have a sort of magic about them. They are open and self-aware, and have the ability to read the room. They know how to bring people together to speak their minds, make great decisions, and get things done!
These leaders have mastered The Art of Alignment.
"I can't imagine leading my team without alignment. It's been a lifesaver."
-Cristin Leimer, Supply Chain Manager
Why Does It Matter?
Alignment is always required to deliver on any project that involves multiple players. You can have the best strategy in the world, but if you don't align all your stakeholders, conflicting priorities, and overwhelm will prevail. Dysfunctional dynamics and conflict
are really just misalignments below the surface that cause frustration, missed deadlines, a false sense of urgency, chaos, and even blame. As the workplace becomes ever more diverse we need alignment more than ever to navigate complexity and tap into our collective wisdom. The bottom line of it is mastering the art of alignment is what separates dreamers from leaders that get things done.
