Or is too much of your time and energy wasted on peripheral issues?

Executive Strategies™ gives you, as a business leader, a unique opportunity to clarify your strategy, the way you lead and your decision-making process. 

It takes place over 5 days as a workshop and uses a proven combination of subjectivity, logic and business strategy models.

it introduces you to:

  • your winning formula for high-achievement
  • your intuitions
  • how-to-apply these to your future and the firm.

You've heard the expression “can't stop to sharpen the axe”? This is 5 days now that will save you 5 years of time and money - AND re-focus your direction.

You will return to your daily role feeling stimulated and refreshed with a clarity that transforms your performance.

The Workshop – 7 key benefits

  1. 5 days now will clarify your real goals and save you 5 years
  2. Clarify your strategy, your authentic strategic leadership method and your decision-making strategy
  3. Articulate 5 key elements of strategy and strategic leadership and learn how they relate to the way you think
  4. Translate your predicament into a positive strategy
  5. Use universal and personal values in your strategy development and strategic leadership without naming them - and develop a compelling storyline that others can understand and respond to
  6. Understand your personal leverage in how you think not what.  This simple shift illuminates your decision strategy so that you can use it repeatedly it in a practical and successful way
  7. Identify and eliminate peripheral issues through a new strategic framework everyone can understand.

Executive Strategies™ starts by exploring and framing your outcomes. 

It yields information on your purpose, vision, values, story and decision-making in relation to a coherent strategy and strategic leadership framework.  Draw people into action – this is strategic leadership for the networked world.

In a way, it's the neuroscience of strategy and it maps across to the way you think and act.

We don’t tell you what to do – it's a process where you look into your world as a way to develop yourself and your organisation.

5 days is actually fast

In the normal world, this exercise would take you about 100 days – probably a year once meetings are taken into account.

But the strategy doesn’t work like that.  Even leading global practitioners are now acknowledging that strategy is subjective first. 

A notable example is Richard Rumelt in his book Good Strategy Bad Strategy.  He says 'Looking at things from a different or fresh perspective can reveal new realms of advantage and opportunity as well as weakness and threat'.

So this workshop is designed to reach your unconscious mind, to look at what drives you and then place your practical, operational world as a business leader in that context.

It means you will get to see precisely how you think and act, what makes you tick.  Then you can take charge of that in the way it relates to how you run your organisation.

Normally this process is slow; it can take some people years. But we have over 30 years’ experience in this area and you are able to achieve results in just 5 days.

Don't take our word for it, read what our clients have to say about it. We can confidently say we think you will find this course truly transforming.

It may well be uncomfortable at the time – only in the beginning – as we may ask you to think about questions you would rather not ask yourself.

But stick with it and you will find the course gives you a set of tools which will enable you to dramatically improve your performance as a business leader.

What's new?

You start from the inside out - we are mapping the structure of your subjective experience because this is where your real leverage is - subjective strategies with structure. 

It might be the first time you have looked at it this way but you will recognise it when you do it:

  • We want to know what you want; how you see it, what it sounds like, and how it feels when you have it.
  • You go deep not wide. Flowers open in the sunlight – sometimes one petal at a time - and so do people.
  • You learn how you are thinking not just what you are thinking.
  • You explore strategies that unify your intelligence: the rational, emotional, and physical.
  • You use tools that access your right, left and midbrain and see the clinical evidence from neuroscience.
  • And you are introduced to the winning formulae of high-achievers from business, academia, and sport – to apply to your own situation.

Here is what you can expect:

You complete an Executive Strategies Outcome Audit before arriving because the good strategy has a personal connection with your potential.

You will be talking, listening, and moving around too.

The aim of the course is to help you find out about the way you think, the way you relate to yourself and other people – the way you form a strategy, and the way you lead your organisation in terms of strategy and strategic leadership.

You get to see it all laid out – you, your organisation, the strategy and the people.

Giving you this puts you in charge.

You are no longer driven and limited by one perception - you have a mastery brought about through awareness of the structure of your subjective experience.

This is a tremendous help when it comes to logic and argument because this is how your brain works.
