Vistage CEO Climb: Ruthless Consistency | Aligning your Organization to Win … Or Else!

Why do 60-70% of strategic change initiatives fail in organizations? Is it really that hard to change?

In this free, virtual 90-minute event for high performing CEOs, you’ll learn from Michael Canic, founder and Chief Flag-Bearer of Making Strategy Happen®.

Learn how to be “ruthlessly consistent” in turning your leadership strategy into reality and the three things you MUST get “right” to execute and win.

Value to guests:

You’ll leave this interactive session with ready-to-apply models, methods, processes and practices to help you execute strategy and implement change. Gain a solid understanding of why Strategic Management succeeds and why strategic planning fails – and what to do about it.

You’ll be inspired with powerful takeaways you can’t wait to implement, and you’ll join CEO peers who are all focused on elevating their companies and their leadership.

Michael Canic

Why so much failure? Because leaders aren't "ruthlessly consistent" in doing what it takes to turn strategy into reality. In aligning intentions, decisions, and actions, they unwittingly send mixed messages that demotivates their people, kills their credibility, and undermines strategic change. In this interactive and assumption-challenging session, we start by having participants assess how consistent they truly are. We then work through a simple yet comprehensive model for what they need to do to consistently create an environment aligned with "winning." An environment in which people can perform at their best. The model is brought to life through real-world examples, role-modeling, and ready-to-apply tools.
