Strategy and Transitional Leadership: Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Are we hitting our targets for 2014?

Do we know what will improve our results in 2015?

How will we know what success looks like?

Am I addressing the things that keep me up at night?

What do I need to do different?

 

In conversations with business executives, many acknowledge their businesses lack a strategy for change. Many leaders realize, and some will admit, they do not know where to start in developing or deploying strategy.   Is your organization on a trajectory of sustained success?   The interactive briefing, Strategy and Transitional Leadership, will explore the role transitional leadership behaviors play in the trajectory of strategy driven change. Participants will leave with one or more simple models they can apply to issues they are facing.

 

Differentiating Strategies was founded on the premise that organizations succeed or fail due to leadership. For over five years Differentiating Strategies has helped leaders develop the strategy and exhibit the behaviors needed to improve outcomes in organizations as diverse as manufacturing, banking, service providers, health care, and non-profits.

 

One more question - is the potential benefit of leaving the briefing with one or more ideas you can apply to help improve your outcomes worth the investment of a small part of your day? Please prepare by considering, what are the obstacles to business outcomes in my organization?

 

This event has also been pending approval for 1.5 Strategic  credit toward PHR/SPHR recertification from the Human Resource Certification Institute.
