Our Approach

Product design - Rectangle

As a leader, we know you want to have a greater impact on your customers, colleagues and shareholders. You want to be a transformative leader and you want to lead a transformed team.

The problem is, you know what needs to be done and why, but you struggle to align your team around how to deliver together on your most ambitious goals.

The most inspiring why and the most ambitious what will fail without an aligned how.

Alignment is a solvable problem for leaders who have the courage to do the work of defining how to lead together. We help leaders and teams complete their Diamond Triangle™, lean into the Behavior Model™, and ultimately leverage the Competency Model™ to create lasting, impactful changes.


KARRIKINS Diamond Triangle™

Many leadership teams spend a lot of resources – notably time and money – on defining what they need to do and why they need to do it.

Most teams spend almost no resources on how they will deliver together.

We believe every organization should have a completed Diamond Triangle. Leaders should know why (mission, vision, purpose) and what (strategy, priorities, BHAGs) they are doing, and they should be equally clear on how they will deliver together as leaders.

At Karrikins Group, we help you close the gap between ideas and execution by making sure the why and what are clear. But, we don’t stop there. Our passion is for making the how equally clear and important as you move forward as an aligned team.

The Three Elements of the KARRIKINS Diamond Triangle™

Diamond Triangle

The Why: Meaningful Purpose

Clarifying why you are in business helps colleagues, customers, investors, and communities to understand the higher-order impact you strive to create.

Diamond Triangle

The What: Bold Strategy

Knowing what you intend to do in the market and what will drive your growth ambitions sets the plan for execution throughout the organization.

The How: Leader Alignment

Defining how executive leaders will deliver together is the key to moving from agreement to alignment and creating the cohesion required to accelerate growth.

KARRIKINS Behavior Model™

It’s important that leaders start with self, because nothing changes until someone changes. The KARRIKINS Behavior Model primes leaders to change and teaches them how to sustain new behaviors through aligned organizational activation.

You and your team may be ready to complete your Diamond Triangle, but are you ready to do the hard work of creating alignment?

All of our alignment solutions are grounded in the KARRIKINS Competency Model, which brings together:

  1. Clarity
  2. Connection
  3. Commitment
  4. Courage

Most organizations have good agreement across leaders about what to do.

Our work goes beyond agreement and creates the conditions for leaders to align on how to deliver together. The competencies underscore the importance of leaders leveling up by moving beyond strategy and into execution.
