As One interventions are custom designed action plans that help member firm clients enhance their collective leadership ability. They are founded in the organization’s reality, developed from rigorous analysis of data collected through the As One diagnostic. Woven together, As One interventions tell a story of the leader’s aspirations, the organization’s higher purpose, and the peoples’ beliefs.
As One interventions begin with a single question: “What do you want to achieve?”
Other interventions start with an assessment of where the organization is today, which tends to focus the discussion unproductively on the negative experiences that have led to the current situation. In contrast, As One gives leaders permission to start with a pristine slate. In this positive environment, leaders are encouraged to articulate their goals in an optimistic and aspirational context. Leaders who can clearly express to their people the higher intent of their work will have greater success at obtaining commitment to a common purpose. This is the strongest foundation for As One behavior.
As One interventions address three core beliefs at every level of the organization:
As One directs leaders’ attention to their organizations’ weakest points and most urgent needs—the areas exhibiting the lowest levels of commitment and engagement—and can enable them to assess their people’s interest in and commitment to strategic plans and business goals prior to allocating resources to execution.
As One member firm practitioners work with clients to develop thoughtful and pragmatic interventions that help leaders create the conditions for success in their organizations. With As One, leaders are equipped with the understanding, knowledge, and tools to better connect with the hearts and minds of their people in a way that engenders As One behavior—people working together, as one, to achieve common goals.
