Investigating the Sophistication of Your Executive Team

In my experience of working with dozens of leadership teams, I have observed the following:

  • Every leadership team operates at a different level of sophistication ranging from low to high
  • Most (if not all) leadership teams believe that they are more sophisticated than they really are
  • An organization’s growth and success are largely determined by the degree to which the leadership team’s sophistication exceeds the complexity of the environment they are operating within.
  • Most leadership teams run at a leadership deficit, such that: complexity of environment > sophistication of leadership team
  • Most organizations do not focus on improving the sophistication of their leaderships team, nor do they know how to

These observations lead me to believe the following:

  • The culture and processes of an organization is a reflection of the leadership team’s sophistication
  • Organizations cannot evolve beyond the sophistication of its leadership team
  • The most effective way of transforming an organization is to elevate the sophistication of its leadership team

But, it is possible to:

  • Assess the sophistication of your leadership teams
  • Elevate the sophistication of your leadership teams

And, I want to help you to do that.
