Managers organize and track resources and processes, but leaders inspire people to excel. When managers understand their values, they set goals and motivate employees to do the same. Aligning those goals and values with the organization’s, minimizes supervision and focuses action on desired outcomes. Helping managers become leaders improves production, fosters innovation, and improves retention. Since leadership is an apprenticed vocation, the company grows its future leaders and builds sustained excellence.
Strategy aligns merely ends, ways, and means or goals, plans, and processes. Connally’s extensive experience in this area allows us to assess, evaluate, and synthesize information relating to a problem to identify possible solutions. We then help our clients gain clarity on their goals, organizing their thinking, prioritizing tasks, and developing their supporting plans and processes. Assembling this information our clients are then capable of defining their strategy.
