At M+L Advisors, we partner with leaders who are passionate about bringing value into the world. They are always working to take themselves and their organizations to even higher levels of success and achievement. Nevertheless, they may be experiencing the challenges of focus, balance, or culture that so often occur in organizations—and sometimes within the leaders themselves—as they are growing or transitioning. They sense the need to do things differently or do different things.
Challenges of Focus
Leaders of rapidly growing companies encounter many distractions, much complexity, and a dizzying array of opportunities. A vision, no matter how compelling, is fleeting until it is translated into clear, focused, and sustained action.
Challenges of Balance
They want more integrity, fulfillment, and effectiveness, not just in what they do but also in who they are. They want work and life to be in harmony—mentally, physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually.
Challenges of Culture
They work with partners or board members who may be at odds over strategy or execution. In addition, team members may view the company’s vision and priorities differently. These leaders want a clear mission, commonly held values, and effective communication to be the mainstays for everyone in their organizations.
What’s more, leaders often have no one who is committed to hear their deepest concerns, challenge their assumptions, help them find clarity and confidence, encourage their actions, hold them accountable, and cheer their successes.
