Alignment is a tricky area. Keeping pace with changing times, with people coming and going, and trying to meet challenging targets is all-consuming, let alone trying to figure out what’s in everyone’s heads. Simple conversations help people align. But they are often laden with social and political sensitivities and far too long-winded when you need things to move quickly.
Mirror Mirror is a structured process to support you in:
- engaging your team
- getting deep and relevant feedback
- spotting the alignment gaps and opportunities
- bringing new and virtual team members closer
- preparing your team to go to the next level.
Alignment doesn’t mean that people need to agree with each other or share the same views. In fact, the more people see things from different angles, the more diversity you can use to make things happen. But people do need to understand the basics: their purpose, requirements, facts, implications, and possibilities. They need to see the opportunities, the blockers, how they can contribute to making it happen, and how others can contribute. Then, they are more likely to support a course of action they may not agree with themselves.
With Mirror Mirror, you can really get under the skin of what’s preventing success and how to overcome that – with the involvement and commitment of your team members.
