Alignment & Values

Leadership teams spend time on the day-to day detail of their business, but without getting under the skin of why they do the work they do, their effort can be wasted.

Alignment and Values work is fundamental to focus, effort and motivation. This work builds:

  • Psychological safety, respect and trust
  • A greater sense of purpose, commitment and accountability
  • An authentic way of navigating, making decisions, and building a like-minded team
  • Collective rather than individual results.
HOW

We take a systemic approach to owning and living shared values, challenging behavioural norms, and having powerful conversations that build lasting commitment and authenticity. A short series of half-day offsites design a powerful alliance and a shared set of core values as part of an intentional company culture.

Bringing our values to life

Involving the team in eliciting our values was illuminating, and sometimes challenging. We defined behaviours that honoured each value which help us be more accountable to each other. Our values help with decision making, managing relationships and performance management. They also help us decide what to say yes to, and when to say no.

Relationships

Sound and healthy relationships are the foundation for productivity and an enjoyable environment. Yet even the best teams come to ‘edges’ where this is challenged.

Work is needed when:

  • New teams come together
  • Teams go through significant change/ decision making
  • There is personal conflict or toxic behaviour
  • Before/during a merger or restructure
  • Roles & responsibilities are confused
  • Close relationships mean difficult but necessary conversations don’t happen.
HOW

1:1 entry conversations identify the key themes within the system, and provide a framework for the work. Perspectives are explored, education around conflict may be needed. A bespoke programme is designed to explore the intelligence that exists, and ways the system can move forward in stronger relationship.

We worked with Liz on our leadership team’s relationship; hearing about our journeys, expectations, how we each felt, and where the business was heading. To really see and hear the other person has allowed us to be both vulnerable and brave in the way we made decisions and took the business forward.
