A Leader's Roadmap to Getting Results

  1. 1. A Roadmap to Results Leadership Strategies with Hilary Potts
  2. 2. If you are like most leaders, you want to find the easiest and fastest way to achieving and sustaining results.
  3. 3. Ideas to Action to Results Brilliant ideas aren’t enough. Successful strategy execution requires figuring out how to enroll and engage your colleagues to “want” to be involved in moving the idea to plans and actions that lead to results.
  4. 4. ‹#› Challenge #1 Gap Between Strategy and Action Business strategies and project plans pave the way for the future. We need to spend as much time on the implementation plans and execution of the initiative as we did in creating the business strategy.
  5. 5. ‹#› Challenge #2 Frenetic Activity It’s easy to set unrealistic expectations and timelines without thinking about what else is already underway. To keep people focused and working on what matters most, take a holistic view of what’s going on to prioritize and sequence the work activities.
  6. 6. ‹#› Challenge #3 Lack of Alignment Initiatives fail when leadership is not in full agreement or alignment around the deployment of a strategy. Speak with colleagues; discuss the different scenarios and options, and come up with the best way forward.
  7. 7. Here’s a Solution… Develop a Leader Change Roadmap Think of the roadmap as your blueprint to know when and how to engage to keep strategic initiatives moving forward. Use the following steps to get started.

  9. 9. What is the Impact of the Change? Your business strategy and solution may be the right thing to do for the business. However, if people run into too many roadblocks, they can get overwhelmed and discouraged before you see results.
