Mirror Mirror is a research-based alignment approach in two parts. Our diagnostic identifies and measures the extent of alignment between people in teams. And our framework – used by expert coaches trained to deliver Mirror Mirror – helps close the gaps. The process is safe and constructive. The outcome is more effectiveness.
People make sense of things in their own ways. They filter inputs using preferences, biases, and assumptions. This is great for ideation but it unless managed, it creates misalignment when it comes to implementation. Alignment gaps between people often sit under the surface. They leads to decisions and actions that don’t line up, creating unnecessary work, cost and frustration. We call it ‘The Fog’.
