Ambition and Focus

Ambition and Focus

Where everything begins: AMBITION AND FOCUS
How do you harmonize business and personal ambitions in a common perspective that is enthusiastically advocated by all team members?

 

Are you leading a team?

  • Do you find it difficult to articulate the team’s ambition in crisp and powerful words?
  • Are vision, mission and strategy beliefs more alive on paper than in hearts and minds?
  • Is there disagreement about the team’s best direction?
  • Does the team struggle to set priorities or to say ‘no’?
  • Do you believe your team has untapped potential?

 

Professionals are driven by honour and want to deliver high quality work
Without clear direction and objectives, professionals withdraw and choose their own paths.  The team drifts  into a collection of autonomous islands, each with its own ambition and focus.  Valuable energy is lost, potential is wasted and talented professionals lose motivation.

 

Ambition and focus make leading a team easier and more enjoyable
Priorities are set more easily and and difficult choices are made smoother. A shared ambition offers each professional the opportunity to make a unique contribution, which adds meaning and increases motivation. With all noses in the same direction, teamwork improves  and individual talents flourish.

 

Ambition and focus work like a magnet
People with similar ambitions are drawn to the team. Others may feel uncomfortable and reconsider their place in the team. A shared ambition and a clear focus ensure that a team attracts the professionals it needs.

 

We help you and the team to achieve a shared ambition and a clear focus
As a leader, you lead the dance. We facilitate your moves as you guide the team to turn business and personal ambitions into a shared perspective.  We help you create an atmosphere where everyone is engaged and participates energetically.

Plan to Improve

A true annual plan is an improvement plan. Which initiatives will bring us closer to our ambitions? Achieving the goals is the focus. Growing as a team and as individual professionals is the way to go. A true annual plan breathes the flavours of a healthy performance climate: what are we going to do to further improve?

Review to Learn

Plan reviews reflect the performance climate in which a team operates. How focused and sharp is the team when reviewing their own performance? Learning is key. ‘What’ and ‘why’ are more important than ‘who’. The way issues are examined and discussed is as important as the issue itself. And finally, the future is more exciting than the past.
