Becoming an effective executive

Are You Effective?

 The Effective Executive Initiative

Are you able to provide continuous value through the results you achieve? On your own?...through others?

We know effective executive leadership...

_ starts with modeling, demonstrating what's expected

_ occurs when all leaders are aligned and cohesive

_ is difficult to develop in a busy high-demand environment

That's why even though you may have arrived at this site to learn more about management training, we start with key leaders. Stage 1 tests and develops where needed the core components of effectiveness at the senior executive level; how you think, what you see, what you decide and how you execute.

The effective executive initiative - 3 stages

✴️ Stage 1 - Personal Effectiveness - Laying the Foundation

Investment: $2,575.00

(Though you can go at your own pace, this 60-day short cycle development opportunity is designed to be rolled out in weekly steps with live-weekly feedback, accountability.

Step1: Strategic Planning: Stepping Back to See Forward - Big Picture Thinking / Thinking Macro

- in my context what needs to be achieved? What needs have to be met?

- what is right for the enterprise right now? - my area of responsibility for the organization as a whole/ all stakeholders

  • Consider strategic plan
  • Business objectives
  • Other considerations unique to your role / company (e.g. board expectations)
  • Is there anyone or group of people you need to confirm your answers with?

Outcome: Gain a clear sense of what’s needed

Step 2: Strategic Execution: Planning Action & Time Usage

- Create an action plan - what do I need to be doing to address and meet needed results?

- What weekly, bi-weekly actions do I need to be doing = micro results serve macro results.

- Tie your action to time by timemapping - how will I align my time to achieve needed results

Outcome: Effective planning and action

Step 3: Strategic Assessment

- Asses results in short time cycles - hitting micro-results to achieve macro results

- Assess usage of time

- Assess decisions made

Outcome: Continuous refinement of execution

Step 4: Measuring Improvements & Collecting Organizational Intel

- What did you learn about yourself?

- What did you learn about those you lead?

- Your organization?

- Other Stakeholders?

Outcome: Reality check - collecting operational intel / closing your blind spots

Thoughts On Pricing

|> Pricing Context 

- The average executive certification program ranges from $2,500 - $16,000 per participant.

- The average cost of a senior management AMA (American Management Association) management 1 or 2-day course for a singular topic is about $2,200 - $2,500 per person with a strict policy of refunding or transfer if chosen dates don’t work. They are information dumps with no implementation support, not tied to real-time business objectives, no measures of success or financial roi (return-on-investment) and no accountability or support post-event.

In relation to our pricing, that’s a few senior managers for a couple of days (in many cases 1 day) of an overwhelming information dump and that's it...the end - no post-event support ( on topics that may or may not improve their effectiveness)...just hoping that "they got something out of it and that something will be put into practice". Hope is not a practical, realistic strategy for gaining a measured return on investment for executive management development.  

We focus on the #1 development need with live, weekly support for a combined (both stages) 120 days!


Making the Decision to Invest

Throughout our 22 years in the industry of leadership-management training and development, we've noticed a common pattern when making a decision to invest. 

Of course everyone is looking for the best value and return-on-investment. And so, the value  is assessed by these 3 common criteria: 

- volume of information

- complexity of information

- source of information such as certification from a prestigious university. 

And yet it's very possible that none of these will translate into becoming more effective. As Peter Drucker observed:  Increasing intelligence, knowledge, or activity does not necessarily increase the ability to achieve needed results. Being effective resides solely in executing the behaviors to achieve the most important outcomes. It is simply a matter of willingness, desire to generate a prescribed set of actions over a period of commit to the discipline of being effective...which he observed is rare. None of the 3 common criteria is needed for this.

And since it is so, what are you willing to invest to make your professional mark, increase measurable value for you and your company and become a distinct leader in your profession?
