Looking for ways to help realize your company’s growth goals? Here are four questions to evaluate the health and alignment of your executive team:
1) Do your executive team members understand each other’s differences, priorities, & styles?
2) Does your executive team meet frequently (weekly is preferred) for strategic thinking?
3) Does your executive team participate in ongoing executive education (monthly is recommended)?
4) Is your executive team able to engage in constructive debates and are all members comfortable in participating?
