Is Your Executive Team Aligned?
A common problem executive teams face is that they forget—or never even knew—the ultimate purpose of their role, which is to advocate and plan for the company.
Executives often make the mistake of acting as representatives of their constituents. This means since each member of an executive team works with a separate group of employees, they often view that group as their number one team. This practice causes divisions and weakens an executive team and the company as a whole.
To be successful, members of an executive team must view their fellow executives as their number one team. When executives work together to make decisions, they set the direction for the company and ultimately prevent disputes among their constituents.
