Our 3 modules
Changing organisational culture
In module 1 we look at the increasingly complex business world and help your leaders operate more effectively in an international environment. The program brings the biggest value to organisations that require their leaders to:
- balance global strategy with the reality of local markets and cultures
- effectively operate in matrix, local and regional structures
- drive a culture change to enable execution of strategy
In our work with participants we will refer to the Hofstede & Minkov culture models and apply culture typology to a business context. We will use our on-line survey, StrategyQ, to help participants understand their own cultural preferences and the pros and cons of their preference in different business situations. If we are working with teams we will help team members understand where they are aligned and misaligned and why.

Strategic planning & execution
In module 2 we ask why strategy is rarely executed effectively in today's complex world. Participants will use a case study or real data provided by you to look at issues such as cross-functional alignment and ensuring execution priorities are consistent with strategic intent.
We will use our strategic planning framework, SPEKs, to help participants identify where gaps exist in strategic thinking, planning & execution and goal setting, plus allocation of accountabilities. We will also help them recognise the responsibility they have to support others in the achievement of their goals.

In module 3 we will look at ’leadership’ from an organisational and an individual perspective. We will take the outputs of the high level culture survey to agree developmental priorities for the business. Participants will be answering the question WHY shared leadership behaviours & enabling organisational practices are so critical for successful execution of strategy.
At an individual level the participants will be using our CompetenceQ and BeliefQ applications, helping them understand their own leadership style & expectations from boss/ peers/ subordinates.
During the program we will challenge your leaders to consider leadership situationally and culturally, with the basic assumptions that one perfect leadership style does not exist and that tolerance of anti-behaviour (defensive styles) can destroy a positive leadership culture.
