The Arceil GearBox is a simple but powerful analytic model that imposes a straightforward structure on the work of leadership. It consists of a 4 x 5 matrix. The four column headers--Awareness, Understanding, Acceptance, and Commitment--refer to dimensions of employee orientation and disposition toward an organization’s success and growth. The five rows represent levels of alignment around leadership vision and strategy.
The best level is at the top: strategic focus, curiosity, passion, and courage. The worst is at the bottom. In between are three middling levels, the higher the better.
The four column headers, taken from our proprietary Rainbow model, are: Awareness, Understanding, Acceptance, and Commitment. They represent the four successive stages that any leadership initiative, strategy, or change program must go through.
Arrayed beneath the column headers is a 4X5 matrix. It provides a structure for gauging the relative orientation of employees (or members, or volunteers, or supporters) toward the organization's mission or toward a particular initiative or strategy. The five rows reflect levels of disposition. We named them for the gears of a transmission.
We hope the Gear Box will bring a sense of order to your organization. We have seen it work wonders.
