Executive Team Building

The most important message an organization can send to its people about the importance of teamwork is that even the leadership at the highest levels value teamwork and are willing to improve their own teams through executive team building.

When we deliver different types of training to first-line and mid-level management teams, we often hear people say, “Upper management should have to take this course too.”

The Executive team in any company is in the spotlight and the people in the organization take their behavioral cues from their leadership team.  If its senior team isn’t highly functional, it is very difficult for the organization as a whole to be successful with its long-range strategy and direction.

CMOE’s executive team building process focuses on key strategies and business challenges; how these issues affect the executive team and how the team deals with those topics.  Executive team building does not occur with an off-the-shelf program.

We provide executive teams with opportunities to call a “time out” to reconnect, re-energize, and, explore how the team can more effectively work together to achieve a common purpose.  While executive leadership teams aren’t much different from any other team that is trying to work together for the best interest of an organization, they do face some special challenges and pressures that can cause dysfunction that can filter throughout the organization.

Some of the critical business issues that can be addressed in a customized Executive Team Building program include the following topics:

  • Organizational Strategy
  • Business Planning
  • Introducing or Leading Change
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Decision Making
  • Behavioral Expectations
  • Roles & Responsibilities
  • Problem Solving
  • Alignment Across Functions
  • Organizational Culture
  • Merger and Acquisition Integration
  • Leadership Skill Development
  • Talent Management
  • Organizational Growth
  • Information Exchange
  • Innovation

As with all of our programs, the goal is to provide dynamic learning, personal growth, and a team development experience that will produce results.  We find that the cascading effects of a more focused, productive, aligned, and powerful executive team will create tremendous waves of positive change throughout the organization.

Since long-lasting change and significant results do not typically happen with the first attempt, we find it very valuable to gather the team together periodically to provide a system for measurement on its goals and commitments and to implement long-term change strategies and plans.

CMOE facilitators and consultants have been involved in many customized executive team building projects with clients including Lennox, Sauer-Danfoss, Cargill, and Grundfos.  They are highly skilled in helping executive teams identify the hindrances that may be limiting the team from reaching its full potential and how to address the key issues.  Many clients prefer to have off-site Executive Team Building programs or combine it with a high-adventure retreat.  CMOE can also provide ongoing one-on-one Executive Coaching services to enhance the executive team building efforts and growth of individual executives and senior leaders.
