Human Alignment – The Missing Piece
July 7 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm CESTFree
A free to attend, interactive Community event to share, learn and explore organisation design and development
‘Human Alignment’ doesn’t necessarily mean everyone has to think the same thing, or even agree with each other. Human alignment is when people with shared goals consider their options and commit to taking the best possible course of action.
Conversely, misalignment happens when people with shared goals do not have a common understanding about how the strategy relates to their work together. Misalignment causes confusion, wasted time and money, reduced productivity, demotivation, conflicts, stress, and reduced performance. The difficult part about dealing with this is spotting the alignment gaps.
There’s a combined diagnostic and dialogic approach to all this – what is it and how does it work?
Led by Lindsay Uittenbogard and Steve Hearsum this zoom event* will explore the definition and scope of alignment, underpinning research concepts and an interactive case study to apply the thinking in small groups.
