Getting everyone on the same page can make all the difference. Literally.
Research shows the way people interpret things can conflict and deviate over time. This can severely impact priorities, collaboration and effectiveness. Time is spent trying to remedy the issues while the underlying misalignment continues to drive people in different directions. The result can be missed timelines and overspend – or below the line: demotivation, stress and frustration.
Misalignment is a risk and much of it can be removed.
With Mirror Mirror, there’s a way to manage misalignment by identifying and addressing the gaps before they become more serious risks.
Business scenarios in which alignment is key…
Test how employees understand the strategy, collect structured feedback, allow teams to relate strategic intentions to what they do and how they collaborate, so they can get on with effective implementation.
Better integrate project teams on their current reality, their shared challenges and how they will coordinate to deliver better together.
Identify the issues and get them on the table, safely and constructively so team members can address what’s needed and move on.
Improve remote collaboration through enabling team members to develop a better shared understanding of their context and behaviours.
CHANGE & TRANSFORMATION
Overcome resistance to change; improve clarity and agility; increase engagement, ownership and preparedness to succeed.

“It was good to have an outside person listening to my views and opinions in the interview without criticism or baggage. Then during the workshop, after all these years, it was the first time we were all really open to hear and appreciate each other. It all felt positive.”
