Team Leadership, Manager Development and
Effective Performance Management
Phase One Sharing Your Clear Vision
We like to work with top teams or project teams to support strategy
creation. Ideally we want to be involved from the outset if it is a
new project but can work equally well with established teams. We use
a range of methods that leads to neat visions, brief but clear
mission statements and commitment to agreed values. This can be
particularly useful when companies merge or enter into partnerships.
Typically we find it takes up two to three Workshops and over no
more than two days in total. Events will be tailored to the needs
and demands of your business to minimise time away from operational
work. In very large organisations the time depends on how many
people are involved with strategy and whether it is part of the
overall business approach.

To achieve a similar Vision and Mission for your business we will
use Stakeholder Analysis and Hexagon Mapping to create a shared view
of the culture and style of your company. During the creation of the
map a “new language” emerges that describes your unique aims such
that choosing the right words to pin point and communicate that
special essence becomes easier.
