Strategic Leadership Solutions"

Speaker: Mary Gormandy White, M.A., SHRM-SCP, SPHR


Topic detail:

Building Vision, Alignment and Execution The culture in any company stems from the actions, attitudes, and behaviors of its leaders as well as the organization's overall missions, vision and values. The best strategic planning efforts work only if the company’s leaders are committed to – and set an example of – its mission and vision and values. Ensuring that your organization’s leaders have the insight necessary to successfully build, navigate and reinforce the company’s mission, vision and values are critical to strategic success.

Vision, alignment and execution are the three elements most fundamental to the work of leaders, and these elements are essential keys for strategic leadership effectiveness. Having a vision is the beginning, but that vision can’t become a reality in the absence of alignment and execution. There isn’t one right way to lead – not everyone has the same leadership style or natural tendencies. However, regardless of individual differences, everyone can lead to best practices, and that’s where vision, alignment and execution are possible.
