Executive and Leadership Teams

Set strategy, drive culture change and establish performance metrics so that both your team, and your organisation will succeed. We’ll tailor our approach to meet your needs.

As a leader of an executive and leadership team, you know that having your team working well together is critical for the health of the organisation. Where this doesn’t occur the organisation will underperform, and a cascade of competitive silos occur.

Some teams pull together to achieve great things for their organisation, while others meander along with team members functioning as representatives of their part of the business, without any focus on collaboratively working together.

This representative approach misses the opportunity to work together on the things that matter most and create the maximum benefit for the organisation.

Most great business teams, much like sports teams, don’t do it alone. They need some support to achieve greatness. This is why UPDRAFT exists – to support good teams to become great and do great things.

Building strong foundations: FORM2PERFORM-EXEC

Form2Perform-Exec launches new executive and leadership teams on a different path by building a strong foundation early.

We’ll help your team take time out to understand individual roles, clarify who you serve and what you as a group are uniquely able to provide.

When an organisation is under pressure and change is called for, the direction and priorities from the executive and leadership teams are key. You need to be able to prioritise for the entire organisation and pool resources to get the most leverage.

As part of the Form2Perform-Exec process, team member coaching is provided to help get the greatest contribution from all of the team.

Teams will learn to:

  • Build trust, deal with tension between members and strengthen relationships
  • Make collective team decisions efficiently
  • Give each other feedback and hold each other accountable for performance and progress
  • Prioritise and limit workloads
  • Communicate as a unit.

“Peer feedback is a powerful way of improving as an individual and also building relationships as a team”

Performance improvement: SPRINT2EIGHT

As a leader of an executive team or a leadership team, you’re no doubt driving regular reviews and resetting priorities. The next step is to review performance as a team and reflect on what the team could be doing better.

Sprint2Eight is the vehicle for teams like yours to do this. It is built on three lenses of team performance: strategy (where are we taking the organisation?), leadership (how do I bring my A game to the table?), and team (how do we maximise ‘us’ for the organisation’s gain?).

What to expect

Sprint2Eight gets you and your team to review the team against 30 team success parameters and quantifies your collective responses.

The debriefing process helps you and your team to discover how aligned or disparate the views of the team are and uncovers what needs to change. We then support you (as much or as little needed) to implement the performance lifting changes.

The results of each survey drive the team to agree the areas that to tackle as a priority to lift performance. Typically, a team would review its performance and track improvement over 1-2 years.

“It’s all about clarity, and naming and addressing the issues we’re experiencing. Creating space to do so is critical.”
