Aligning Conversations

Most leaders are afraid of hard conversations about behavior, performance & alignment. 

With a step-by-step repeatable process, leaders can ensure their team is aligned and productive. 


Do you avoid hard conversations and put up with team issues that need attention? Have you done more harm than good by having unclear and unstructured conversations?
You are in the right place.

I have learned the secret to having hard, meaningful conversations with those we lead. It’s allowed me to help my team perform well, get results that tie directly to the success of our organization, and enjoy strong team morale. I’m convinced it’s a CRITICAL skill every leader needs to master.

Bob is always late.

Susan is disrespectful in the staff meeting again.

Jamie doesn't understand the goals.


Problems often start small but can create serious long-term consequences for your team performance and morale if you don't address them:


1. You are paying under-performers to under-perform

2. Your other team members carry extra load to compensate for the under-performer

3. Your best team members get fed up and leave

4. Your credibility as a leader is diminished for not stepping into the hard conversations conversations well


Sound familiar?


Why are we so afraid to step in and have these conversations?

Maybe it's because we tried it and it didn't go so well. Maybe the end of the conversation made us wonder who is leading who.

Or maybe because someone had one of those conversations with us in the past, and it really hurt because they didn't do it well or with compassion.

Through years of work in the trenches in both the non-profit and for-profit space, and my work as a certified leadership coach, I developed a step-by-step process I use consistently to prepare, conduct and follow-up on the most important and difficult conversations.

What Might Happen If You Did This Well?


Those you lead won't wonder what is expected of them, with clarity about what healthy performance looks like, and how to avoid drift off course.


Doing this well would mean you are developing your team, shaping them as people and not just spots on an org chart. This builds respect and loyalty. 


Aligning Conversations work because they tell employees how to win and give them a clear plan to get there. This is a great morale boost for every team.


Strong, aligned individuals make for productive teams. Aligning Conversations have the ability to transform your team productivity with clarity and respect.

What Happens Next
Depends On You...

Are you ready to step up your game and become the leader you were created to be? Are you ready to make an investment into yourself and your team that will pay dividends? 

Or are you willing to keep trying and striking out with a solid plan, or not doing anything at all? So many leaders notice a direct report either slightly underperforming or beginning to “drift” from the mission of the organization, and feel ill-equipped to step up and address it. The consequences of that failure to redirect can eventually wreak havoc on a team and an organization. No church leader desires that, to be sure. 

Our team has worked hard to ensure you have everything you need to have successful Aligning Conversations, every single time. We're confident it will help improve your leadership and overall job satisfaction, both for you and those you lead.

You can pick up the Aligning Conversations Toolkit and instantly have access to everything you need to get started and see a difference right away.
