Aligned Leadership

CGC works with executive groups to transform them into highly aligned leadership teams that provide the necessary inspirational leadership to their organizations. Working with a unique method, leaders design an “Inspiring Strategic Frame” that galvanizes their organization, and a set of well-defined breakthrough outcomes that can be launched and acted upon immediately. Through facilitation, the leadership team creates a bold view of a new future and a detailed plan for how to fuel alignment, effective action and sustainable value. Through coaching, the team members establish a commitment to each other, to their organizations future and the necessary behavioural framework that will drive behaviors and underpin success. Individual executives become a true leadership team with a single shared commitment, shared goals, aligned decisions, common behavioural and business structures and an inspired outlook for the organizations future.

Executive Coaching and Mentoring for High Impact

Today’s executives and leaders are up to making happen, what was once considered to “be impossible”. They want to contribute something extra-ordinary and difference making inside of their organizations that also sets new standards for their industries and beyond. To do so necessitates preparing and equipping both them and their constituencies in new ways of thinking, acting (behaving), and organizing to continuously elevate not only performance, but the ways in which that new performance is achieved. One-on-one executive coaching for high-potentials leaders and managers is designed to: dramatically and rapidly increase the leaders’ ability to inspire, encourage and develop the next generation of high potentials, build championship teams equipped to powerfully deliver on their organizations business imperatives, and enhance the leaders’ abilities to galvanize their staff and members to greater levels of measurable accomplishment.

Executives and senior leaders who want to operate at peak performance, while continuing to grow and expand, often engage an executive coach to allow them to move to the next level of development professionally and personally. Coaching can provide different vantage points or openings to see challenges with relationships or strategic implementation, for example, from a different or new perspective, and to discover ones own blindspots or gaps regarding current ways of operating.

At Critical Game Consulting, we employ our proprietary CAUSE coaching methodology: The first three elements are qualitative while the last two lend themselves more readily to being quantifiable.

  • Core Values - are at the core of what is undeniably important to each person. It provides a kind of purpose for existence. These will differ from person to person and, once uncovered or discovered can provide tremendous insights to an executive or senior leader about why they value one thing more than another. We employ a simple methodology and set of questions that helps people to uncover what is most important, and what they would be unwilling to give up under any or most circumstances.
  • Aspirations - we help people to get clear on what they really want to accomplish that may not seem now to be realizable. When people are naturally at work to fulfill on their aspirations they often feel inspired.
  • Unstoppability - we ask our clients are you being unstoppable or hesitant to accomplish those things most important to you, and if being hesitant what is the source of that?
  • Success Metrics - once a person is clear about their core vlaues, aspirations and where they are willling to be dedicated or play full-out without hesitation, then it is important to shift gears and move from the qualitative to the quantifiable by saying: If you were being or living your Core Values and being unstoppable, what would you accomplish inside of your defined aspiration. 
  • Engagement - to play a big game requires the involvement of many people in order to be realized. The fifth question we explore is around the question, if you were really connected with people and team behind a common purpose, a shared action plan and common objectives, what could you really accomplish?
