The Bailey Group’s Executive Team Alignment work is based on research and practice-validated models. We understand that to develop, teams need to focus both on getting the right things done (task focus) and on creating an atmosphere of “psychological safety” (healthy relationship focus).
As leaders, when we are not continuously monitoring our behavior, we miss the bad form that results from this lack of self-monitoring. Make sure to look into that mirror at the end of every day and ask yourself, “What was my impact on my team today?”
During times of radical uncertainty, leaders can be paralyzed by reading and hearing what appears to be conflicting advice. Do you hunker down and do what is necessary to fight another day? Or do you take courageous action and choose to set a new course for the future? Let these 5 steps be your guide.

Investing in an executive coach brings an outside perspective to your organization, and partners with you and your leaders to reach your full potential. They help leaders build new habits around how they think and behave, in order to build and maintain high performing teams.
Understanding the competencies and underlying personality traits that are important to remote work can help you assess if it is the right move for your workforce.
