Together at the Top for a bigger Bottom Line
In today’s uncertain world, only the highest standards of strategic management and governance are good enough. It is more than ever essential that the Top Teams that drive your businesses prepare for the challenge in a careful and systematic way.
I.J. Martin & Co Ltd, staffed by experienced Board Chairs, CEOs and non-executive directors, helps senior executives to effectively work together for the benefit of the business bottom line.
Top Team Review
Your senior team includes some excellent individuals, but do they work as a team together? Busy Top People have little time to sit down and talk with each other. Critical business decisions are often reached in an atmosphere of uncertainty, egocentric politics and mutual mistrust.
Yet, most top executives want to work well as a team… but they need a little extra help to ‘create the mood’. That’s where I.J. Martin & Co’s experienced coaches come in.
- Using our own confidential one-to-one interview process, focused on collective Top Team Performance, we gain deep insights into how the team interacts and how it can work better together.
- Then, as neutral ‘referees’, we get the team round the table to thrash out the issues.
- Honest debate, with our firm guidance, soon arrives at a Prioritised Action Plan, collectively owned by every member of your team.
- Regular coaching interventions and check-ups ensure that your Top Team quickly reaches and sustains Collective Excellence, for superior business results.
