CLIMB to Align
Enabling teams at different management levels to understand each others' priorities, challenges and aims
What is CLIMB to Align?
CLIMB to Align, is an engaging and inclusive programme that enables different levels of management teams to understand each other’s priorities, challenges and aims.
The programme helps Leadership and teams develop plans and strategies that support each other to work most effectively together, driving collaboration and performance. Participants are mentored and coached, and engage in group sessions, in their own teams and in joint sessions working together across hierarchy. Participants are encouraged to challenge the ‘status quo’ and look for solutions to dynamics that are impeding alignment and service delivery.
The programme has helped SLT, senior managers, middle managers and entry level management to understand, engage and support each other and build effective working relationships.
