Execution IS the Strategy by Laura StackThe following four eCourses comprise the Four Keys to Efficient Strategic Execution

In more than twenty years of helping leaders create high-performance cultures and accelerate growth, I’ve identified four key factors that must be in place for a leader to execute strategy efficiently. Without these elements, an execution can fail—even when you base it on a mature, effective strategy. The Four Keys to Efficient Strategic Execution—Leverage, Environment, Alignment, and Drive—represent solutions to these failures and form the L-E-A-D Formula™ outlined in Execution IS the Strategy.

 

LEVERAGE 13-Week eCourseThis is the first of a four-part series outlining the L-E-A-D Formula from Laura Stack’s book, Execution IS the Strategy, which represent the Four Keys to Successful Strategy Execution. The First Key is LEVERAGE. This 13-week eCourse explores how to use your leaders (the input force), your team members (your levers), and your resources (your fulcrum) to your maximum advantage. Do you have the right people and drivers in place to achieve your strategic priorities? If not, then you have a talent/resource issue. REGISTER 

ENVIRONMENT 13-Week eCourseThis is the second of a four-part series outlining the L-E-A-D Formula from Laura Stack’s book, Execution IS the Strategy, which represent the Four Keys to Successful Strategy Execution. The Second Key is ENVIRONMENT.

ALIGNMENT 13-Week eCourseThis is the third of a four-part series outlining the L-E-A-D Formula from Laura Stack’s book, Execution IS the Strategy, which represent the Four Keys to Successful Strategy Execution. The Third Key is ALIGNMENT. This 13-week eCourse explores how to get your team members on board with your mission, define what the collective goals will be, and determine how to get there. Do your team members’ daily activities move them toward the accomplishment of the organization’s ultimate goals? If not, then you have a communication/productivity issue. REGISTER

DRIVE 13-week eCourseThis is the fourth of a four-part series outlining the L-E-A-D Formula from Laura Stack’s book, Execution IS the Strategy, which represent the Four Keys to Successful Strategy Execution. The Fourth Key is DRIVE. This 13-week eCourse focuses on your team’s path to productivity, how to remove obstacles from your team’s path, speed things up, and remove time wasters. Are your organization’s leaders, teams, and employees agile enough to move quickly once the first three pieces of this list are in place? If not, you have a speed/agility issue. REGISTER
