Action Wheel Leadership
How valuable would it be to you as a leader to have your team collaboratively determine what issues are holding them back, and MUST be addressed?
This is what can be accomplished with our Action Wheel Assessment, an organizational tool used to spot light problem areas as well as areas of strength.
Did you know that the alignment of a team’s members is the single greatest determinant of that team’s performance?
Just as a car can’t perform well when some of its parts are misaligned, a team can’t perform well if its members aren’t aligned. Many REAL NEEDS and ISSUES are often hidden.
It seems simple, but we’ve found in our 30 plus years of research that you must first figure out what’s going on before you can progress to fixing it. Just as we might use an MRI to diagnose a person's “soft tissues”, our proprietary Action Wheel Assessment is used to provide an image of your organization's “soft issues.”
In our Team Alignment workshop, your leadership team discusses and agrees upon the actions they need – and want – to work on to improve overall alignment.
In many cases, the result from our Alignment Process will surface many of the same issues the leaders themselves would like to have addressed. The difference, though, in enthusiasm and engagement is when the team determines for themselves where the biggest alignment issues fall vs. when the leader dictates the actions that need to be taken cannot be overstated.
“AWL’s proprietary assessment helped us find the source of the organization’s pain and deal with it effectively.” ~Chuck Heidbrink, Vice President, BHS HealthCare
“We were finally able to get to the real issues! By resolving our technical specs between our international manufacturing plants and our US plants we will save these last months alone (conservatively) about $15,000.” ~ Paul Brinda, Director, Electro Magnetic Product Development
To better understand misalignments and their causes, we recommend assessing your entire employee base using our Leadership Alignment (or Action Wheel) Assessment.
This proprietary, online tool is designed to create a snapshot of your organization’s health and will reveal the strengths and weaknesses within your organization in each of the following six areas:
The assessment instrument will identify the actions that need to be taken and drive the leadership team to address the challenges identified.
We can break this assessment down by work areas so that the results are most meaningful to your leadership group.
Once the assessment is complete, the data is analyzed and presented in an aggregate report that pinpoints specific issues requiring resolution.
The assessment identifies the hotspots your team needs to address. A follow up workshop adds real context to these hotspots and allows your team to arrive at consensus on exactly what the priorities are for your group.
Together, you will create a specific and actionable list of what needs to be done to drive alignment and enhanced performance.
This is the beginning of your resolution process.
At the conclusion of the leadership team session, we can discuss additional potential work with you.
Conducting additional workshops to create actionable agendas for each group based on our review of the assessment results.
Facilitating project teams assigned to work on issues identified in the leadership team work session.
Delivering other AWL workshops that fit your development needs.
