The As One diagnostic is a temperature check of an organization’s leader-and-follower dynamics, collective behavior competency, and As One potential. It helps enable leaders to identify the main drivers of success and better understand how the people within their organizations choose to collaborate with each other. The diagnostic also detects potential obstacles to strategy deployment so leaders can take preemptive action to keep minor issues from turning into major problems.
Think about your organization and ask yourself:
Do you measure how well your people work together? Did you even know that you could measure that? You can.
Member firm clients emerge from the As One diagnostic process with an actionable understanding of their people’s potential for working as one. As One member firm practitioners then work with clients to develop a roadmap for leaders to unleash this potential and achieve a productive and sustainable form of engagement with their people that can elevate commitment, efficiency, and productivity.
Trained As One member firm practitioners measure the presence of and diagnose the effectiveness of collective leadership in your organization. The typical diagnostic takes six to nine weeks to complete.
Maximizing performance across the operations of clients requires an understanding of the choices people make. By uncovering and understanding the As One core components, leaders can develop an As One strategy for collective leadership:
|Who||The cohesive groups that are most likely to work together effectively. To whom or to what group do employees have allegiance? Do they have a “shared identity” that makes them willing to collaborate?|
|What||The things people need to do to achieve strategic goals and meet defined milestones. To what will employees commit? Do they have enough of a “directional intensity” or commitment to execute on all required tasks?|
|How||The approach people will take to reach designated goals. How will employees collaborate? Do they have a “common interpretation” of how to work together toward the group’s shared goal? Do leaders and followers have the same expectations for how the organization operates?|
Imagine what you could accomplish if you channeled individual action into collective power?
