Leading Humans in the Corporate Machine

All organizations operate like machines with interlocking parts. As leaders, one of our challenges is the reality of having human gears in that machine.

You can’t just drop in a new part without accounting for all the other ones, instead you have to work inclusively to create space for new initiatives.

Otherwise the gears grind and may even break.

Leaders in the machine have to handle a lot of heat.

Opinionated people.

Political forces.

Competing priorities.

Tight resources.

Regardless of the challenges, all organizations must evolve, and somebody has to move things forward.

Is that you?

Maybe you are overwhelmed at your daily task list and pressured deadlines and don’t have time to step back for a fresh perspective?

Maybe you can’t step away for any length of time to take your leadership skills to the next level, let alone develop your team?

There’s just never enough time.

However, with almost every client I work with, I see an incredible amount of time wasted in poor decision making, not utilizing the team's talents and skills, poor hiring or just sitting in endless meetings discussing where no action is taken.

But it doesn’t have to be like that. As a leader your attention to the human element of the corporate machine can make all the difference.

There is a simple and effective way to build a high performing team that is on fire and ready to deliver projects on time, with humanity, energy and impact.

By creating an organization that people want to belong to, we build loyal and trusted teams who are engaged and committed to the company’s mission and vision.

Who feel seen, heard and appreciated. Who know the value of their place in the company and love going to work each day to contribute.

This is not done through will-power or top down command and control. That just creates conscripts that you have to keep an eye on.

It can be done when a leader invites others to be a part of the solution creation, to be a part of the action. Not just another cog in the machine.

With an inclusive leadership approach organizations just take off. Everyone is plugged in and excited to move in the same direction. The momentum is thrilling and energizing.

When you have the right stakeholders design the solution, you have a team of people driving for that solution.

If you try to force a solution on a team, then things fall apart really easily because no one really understands what they are agreeing to.

So, I encourage you to redefine your definition of leadership to include a vision of a better future and then go about building a team around you that is inspired, committed and aligned into action to get the work done, and thrive while doing so.

In the past 12 months, The Art of Alignment has helped more leaders make decisive steps to build a high performing team while saving the company millions of dollars in wasted time, energy and resources.

Whatever your current challenge is, my team and I can show you how learning to lead Alignment can help you turn it around.

We have set aside time in the next week to speak with you personally about how you can apply Alignment to your team and business challenges, immediately.

We'll jump on Zoom for about 45 minutes and lay out a plan together to help you and your team get into alignment and turn your ideas into action.

If you have a desire to lead an inclusive team where every voice matters with the wish to work collaboratively, with humanity, co-creation and impact at the heart of all you do, I invite you to book a call with one of my team.

This is absolutely free - it is my gift to you!

We are looking forward to speaking with you soon

Until then, stay aligned!
