Align Your Organization by Implementing




1. Take the SPORT assessment and identify the areas of opportunity for improvement in your organization

Every organization is better at some things than others. Ironically, it is often the case that leaders have less than 20/20 vision when viewing themselves and their organization. We first work with organizations to identify the blind spots and in what areas perceptions are not unanimous across the organization.

Implementation: Meeting with GrowthSPORT and executive/administrative management (head player-coaches)

  • Who attends: top level leaders (executive or administrative leadership)
  • Overview SPORT methodology (teach)
  • Process to identify opportunities for improvement

2. Create a SPORT Map

Alignment starts at the top of any organization. After understanding the focus points for improvement in an organization, we work with senior leadership to get crystal clear on why the organization exists, what it is trying to accomplish, by when it will achieve its objectives, how it will accomplish its objectives, and where the work will be done. Once this foundation is in place, we prepare leaders to help cascade inter-dependent goals and lead behaviors throughout the entire organization.

Implementation: Two meetings between GrowthSPORT and the organization’s leaders

  1. Middle Management (Position player-coaches) Meeting
    1. Who attends: 3rd level managers on up
    2. Overview SPORT methodology (teach)

    7. Implement daily and weekly performance review meetings (film sessions)
    8. Gamification implementation

Like any sports team, strategies are implemented in games. SPORT is played in a “season” that is at least 20 games long, where each game takes one week. Each season begins with a “kickoff” that begins the first game.
