MANAGEMENT TEAMS

Transforming a group of individual executives into a well-functioning management team pays huge performance dividends.  A well-functioning team authentically owns the organization’s mission and values, and is mutually committed to accomplishing a shared vision. In a well-functioning team, personal agendas, egos, and interpersonal conflict are minimized out of commitment to the team.  Unfortunately there are far more management “groups” than there are management teams. 
 
SGR offers a variety of services to help your team perform at a higher level:
  • Executive Book Briefings
    SGR’s executive book briefings is a great tool to keep local government executive teams staying on top of leading-edge thinking in the business world. Executive book briefings are dynamic 90-minute presentations of the materials covered in a current leading business book that engages your leadership team in a practical real-world discussion regarding how a concept, idea or practice applies to the local government environment in a meaningful way.

    Because the very nature of Strategic Leadership is oriented towards constant learning, Executive Book Briefings should be provided in an ongoing cycle to create a cultural commitment to become a learning organization. For maximum impact, Executive Book Briefings should be cascaded down through the organization through discussion guides shared via staff meetings at all levels. This cascaded learning approach not only reinforces a culture of constant learning, it also creates extensive opportunities within each operating unit to discuss current issues, thus enhancing organizational communication and performance.

     

  • Building Better Leaders
    Building Better Leaders takes the Executive Book Briefings offering to a deeper level of engagement and practical application within your organization.  Building Better Leaders provides a series of live executive book briefings coupled with a professionally facilitated team discussion on major leadership topics.
     

  • Retreats and Workshops
