In today’s highly competitive marketplace, organizations must remain agile, efficient, and responsive to the ever changing needs of their customers. Information must be accurately and effectively communicated across the entire organization so that important challenges/opportunities can be promptly addressed by Company resources.
Within successful companies, the CEO’s leadership assures that business units are closely aligned by the Company’s core values, mission, and strategic goals. As a result, shorter term objectives are clearly identified, while defining interdependencies and encouraging collaboration across the entire organization. Teamwork is endemic to a system in which everyone has a set of common goals and work together towards achieving those goals. Effective teams are characterized by trust, respect, and with a high degree of communication and collaboration.
Fostering a culture of collaboration may pose numerous hurdles for the CEO to overcome: additional time; perceived loss of autonomy; resistance to change; lack of confidence or trust in the decisions of others; conflicting perceptions; territorialism; and the diversity of skills and experience of team members.
However, these hurdles can be successfully overcome when the organization is properly aligned. With the leadership of the CEO, this alignment within the right culture will connect individual and team objectives to the higher level goals of the Company, and show everyone how their efforts contribute to the overall success of the organization.
Join us for an interactive panel discussion of CEOs and executives who will share lessons learned in how to apply the 4 C’s towards achieving an agile, effective and responsive organization to successfully compete in today’s marketplace.
