Most organizations are not achieving their greatest potential for success because their workplaces are out of alignment. AlignUp® training brings about an aligned workplace starting with alignment among those who report directly to the key decision maker and the key decision maker. When you have an aligned workplace the results are great synergy, increased productivity and increased revenues. When all members of your top management team work together in alignment you can push down alignment through your organization.
An aligned workplace has outstanding communication, greater collaboration and passionate commitment. Your aligned workplace will be more productive, cohesive and supportive of each other. In addition, this will result in less stress at work for you.
SDC’s AlignUp® training program empowers all employees from top to bottom to be better aligned with your organization’s goals and vision. The result of greater alignment throughout your organization is a more productive overall organization culture.
Based on the book, The Aligned Workplace, by Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Allen E. Fishman, the AlignUp® training program takes an organization through 12 Factors of Alignment. The leadership development program is designed for executive-level managers who report directly to a Key Decision Maker. Managers will leave each training session with a defined Action Plan to implement what was learned in the training session. AlignUp training is about forming habits and getting all members of the team to understand and respect all roles on the team, and to work together with energy and synergy.
Those who take AlignUp training bring about greater workplace alignment by aligning up with the person to whom they report, aligning more effectively with their fellow peers and pushing alignment down through every level of the organization. AlignUp training brings about greater organization synergy.
When you have an aligned workplace, your employees will be more driven, passionate and happy. This will result in less employee turnover. This reduces the time and cost spent to recruit, hire and train new personnel.
“The monthly AlignUp team meetings have been one of the most valuable exercises since I joined the executive team, fundamentally changing our mutual understanding of each other’s responsibilities and challenges, while helping us cultivate stronger team communications.”
“In my position, a direct report to the President and with multiple direct reports of my own, we felt that it was imperative to make sure that our leadership team was as efficient as possible, communicating well, organized … in short, Aligned. We completed the alignment training in one year and have put the tools and behaviors in place in our everyday work environment. As the result of a few behavior changes alone, my team’s efficiency has gone up at least 30%. In addition to the significant increase in my team’s performance and collaborative skills, my overall communications with the President (Key Decision Maker) have also been positively impacted resulting in streamlined workflow and decision making. I absolutely recommend alignment training. It was time and money well spent.”
