If you want to change your business, leaders must change themselves.

90% of organizational problems can be traced back to issues in the executive team.

The number one problem in executive teams is that they aren´t really a team.

Leadership teams that aren’t playing at peak performance hurt the whole company.
What’s worse, leadership teams don’t get the help they need to play at their best.

Why not?

They’re the senior decision-makers and they have a lot on their dashboard. New issues are flying at them all the time. It’s easy for them to get distracted and move away from their leadership agenda.

In these leadership teams, there’s a lot at stake. There’s a lot of power and not much trust. A senior leader isn’t going to tell their colleagues, “I’m not sure how to handle this situation.” And if someone does say, “I have a problem,” they do it in a confessional way with a coach, so no one else knows about it.

There’s a layer of insulation that prevents executive leaders from hearing the honest truth about how others perceive them and the real state of the business. Too often leaders get good news that keeps them happy, yet distracted from the issues that could help their business really shine.

What’s more, HR can’t give the executive leadership team much help. Rarely does human resources have the standing to challenge senior leadership’s capability or performance as they report into these senior executive teams.

Leadership teams who work with me go through a dynamic learning process called Executive Ownershift®, enabling them to clarify and reown their executive agenda, the starting point for breakthrough results. I am convinced that if you really want to get ahead of your competition, and stay ahead as a market leader, this is the only place you can start. Everything starts with the leadership team. Anything else is a distraction.

90% of executive leadership teams aren’t playing at their best.

Up to 30% of a company’s profitability is CEO influenced and this percentage rises dramatically when you consider the entire executive team.

Non-executive issues consume 40% of executive meetings, wasting time, setting a poor example and preventing senior leaders from creating breakthroughs for the businesses they lead.

80% of engagement initiatives fail to create better business performance.
