Why Alignment Matters for Leaders

Green - Line

Most strategies fail because there isn’t alignment to the new behaviors and decisions required to deliver on them.

The Aligned Leader Program was designed by Dr. Julie Williamson from an intersection of business experience and social science that makes this program much different from other leadership development programs.

So ask yourself, are you…

  • Tired of ‘doing’ instead of ‘leading’?
  • Unsure how alignment plays into your role as a leader?
  • Looking for new ways to improve your leadership skills and increase your influence?

If so, the Aligned Leader Program can teach you the skills to create and maintain alignment on your team and across your organization through influence, not power.

Exceptional Results Come from Aligned Leadership

Green - Line
Through our Alignment Journey work, Karrikins Group has exposed thousands of leaders to the power of alignment and provided them with tools and resources to create aligned teams that deliver on ambitious goals. We have developed the Aligned Leader Program as a way to reach more leaders with our one-on-one work, inviting leaders of all levels to apply the tools and resources in meaningful ways to their own challenges.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to have people reporting to me to participate?

No, you do not have to have people reporting to you to participate. Aligned Leadership supports your work with colleagues and cross-functional teams.  Aligned Leadership is a valuable superpower to develop regardless of your role in the organization. 

What organizational leadership level is this program appropriate for?

This program is ideal for mid to senior level leaders who work across the organization as well as within their verticals. It will help you to strengthen your skills in both leading teams and influencing across your organization to get the most important work accomplished. 

Why is the program 5 months? / What happens if I can’t make all the sessions?

We believe that consistency over time makes for better learning than a single catalytic experience. It takes effort to develop superpowers, and by spreading that effort over 5 months you dramatically increase the likelihood of success.

Together with your Alignment Partner, you will choose the dates for your team session and 1:1 sessions.  All 1:1 sessions can be rescheduled with 24-hour notice and must be completed by the closing session. The dates of the three full-cohort sessions (opening, mid-point, and closing) will be published one month in advance.  If you have a conflict, you may request a recording of the session from your alignment partner.

Can I do a 360 feedback process through this program?
Yes for a incremental fee we will conduct our KG Alignment 360 on your behalf. Your Alignment Partner can coordinate that with you.
Will in-person cohorts be available in the future?

We are continuing to monitor the possibility of in person work together, however, at this time we are not planning on in person cohorts for 2021-2022. 

How will this impact my leadership / career development?

We provide the framework, the partnership, and the access, you do the hard work of stepping into your own power and voice. Together we build the muscle you need to make alignment visible, to effectively hold yourself and others accountable to being aligned, and to make the hard decisions that strategic success requires. You can expect to finish the program with new tools and resources to grow your career and to elevate your leadership vertically and horizontally in your organization.
