At Karrikins Group, we know that moving from agreement to alignment sounds simple, but it is incredibly hard for individuals and even harder for groups to align on how to take an idea and make it a reality.

Minding the Failure Gap [Whitepaper]

It is easy to fall into the Failure Gap – the space between agreement and alignment. This is where good intentions flounder.

Change starts with self. Leaders must be willing to go first and take the leap to alignment before they ask anyone else to do the same. By going first, leaders build a bridge for the rest of the company to join them in transforming individually and organizationally.

Executives are charged with meeting a dizzying array of expectations, including delivering on quarterly financials, investing in long-term growth, providing reassurance to jittery customers and markets, disrupting the status quo, introducing new products, reliably delivering on legacy products, maintaining employee focus and productivity, and managing rapidly shifting distribution models (just to name a few).
