As the leader of a high-stakes team or organization, you know what it’s like to work under constantly changing, stressful conditions. You and your teams know when you’re not working well together or performing at your peak, but you don’t have time to assess why or how to make it better. Wildfire Strategies Organization Diagnostics can provide you with an in-depth understanding of the impediments to your best teamwork and performance, as well as the strengths that will help you overcome those impediments.
There are so many forces shaping the industries we work with: regulation, technology, mergers, disintermediation, and others. Leadership changes at all levels create opportunities for fresh starts, but they can also kick up fears about losing familiar faces and ways of working. It’s easy to get off track during these times of change, or paralyzed into inaction that leaves you behind.
You have inherited a team or department burdened with a lot of old baggage. Wounds from long-standing conflicts and resentments fester. Perhaps they’ve been made worse by a prior leadership vacuum and lack of ongoing professional development.
You want your teams to run like a smooth, fast-moving train: productive and effective. Your customers and key stakeholders depend on it. And, if your team isn’t collaborating effectively together, the cost is great. Perhaps you’ve gone through organizational changes, and added or lost team members. People are tentative, not communicating well and unable to contribute to their full potential. You know the team can do better.
Coaching for Leadership
Who do you turn to when there are tough choices to make, a difficult conversation to have, complicated reporting lines to navigate? Who helps you sort through the concerns that keep you up at night? As a top leader in your organization, you may have few trusted allies to explore complex issues with, and even less time to think about them.
