How to Define Your Company’s Mission Statement –A Step by Step Action Plan
For an organization to succeed in a rapidly changing environment, it is critical that all key players within an organization have a clear and common understanding of who the organization is, why it exists and what its goals are. Without such a clear and common understanding different key individuals end up pulling the organization in different directions, based on their individual understandings and personal desires. This creates a loss of focus and reduces the speed by which the organization is able to adapt.
The Mission Statement is typically the tool that is used to align the key individuals within an organization around a common direction yet many mission statements fall flat. They are either too generic, do not generate energy for change, do not get the buy in of key individuals, are not time bound or simply do not reflect the realities on the ground.
In this on-demand webinar, Shoham Adizes presents a step by step formula for how you can quickly create a “Mission Action Plan,” that will inspire and unify your management team so that they all focus their efforts in the same direction.
How to Build a Highly Effective Management Team
If the ideal manager, executive or leader does not exist, then what should we be looking for? We know that in order to make decisions that create and maintain effective and efficient organizations, four management roles must be performed. But we also know that the four roles are incompatible.
Thus, in order to have good management, organizations must realize and accept that a group effort among people with complementary styles is the only workable solution. We need a team of leaders, managers, and executives, whose styles are different, who complement each other, who can work together and balance one another’s biases.
Watch this webinar and hear the characteristics of a high performance management team and how you can build one.
The Ideal Executive and Why You Cannot Be One
One of the basic premises of the Adizes methodology is that the perfect leader does not and cannot exist. All of the books and textbooks that teach us to be perfect managers, leaders or executives are based on the erroneous assumption that such a goal is possible.
By focusing on the fact that people are individuals with their own set of unique strengths and weaknesses, Shoham outlines an alternative approach to management that is based on a realistic understanding of what we can expect from each other and how we can overcome our relative weakness and still manage at the highest levels. Watch this webinar and hear Shoham present a strategy to overcome your weaknesses so that good management can take place despite of each of our imperfections.
Four Management “Vitamins” For Optimal Organizational Health
Organizations, like any living system, seek to be effective and efficient in the short and long run. What type of management is required to achieve this? The Adizes Methodology describes four roles that management must perform for optimal health. Interestingly, each of these roles, which are like organizational “vitamins,” appear in a predictable sequence. Because of this, the problems in an organization are predictable, as is the therapy!
Watch this webinar to learn what these specific four “vitamins” are and how they can help you predict the problems, and the required therapy, for your organization to achieve optimal health.

Adizes Corporate Lifecycle – How to Make the Transition from Entrepreneurship to Professional Management
In this on-demand webinar, Senior Adizes Associate Pavel Golenchenko discusses the Adizes Corporate Lifecycle.
Corporations, like living organisms, experience predictable patterns of behavior as they grow and develop. Not unlike living organisms, they are faced with transitional problems as they progress through the various stages of their lifecycle. The success or failure of any organization depends on its ability to meet the challenges presented by growth and change, and to make healthy transitions from one stage of development to the next. For a company to preserve its hard-won gains during the developmental stages, it must make the change from management-by-intuition and management-by-the-seat-of-the-pants (Go-Go management) to a more professional process. This should happen during what is termed the Adolescence stage in the Adizes Corporate Lifecycle.
How to Create a Culture of Mutual Trust and Respect Within an Organization
In this on-demand webinar, Shoham Adizes follows up on Dr. Adizes March 11 lecture on The Secret of Success. If the secret of success is a robust culture of mutual trust and respect, a culture where everyone is united by their common interests and celebrate their diversity as it helps them make better decisions, then how do we build this culture within an organization? The idea of united we stand, divided we fall dates back to the bible. This secret of success is nothing new. However, the Adizes Methodology does provide a unique way of approaching this challenge; a holistic approach that varies significantly from standard management conventions.
