3 Ways Leadership Impact Growth:

  1. Leaders have the biggest impact on the culture: The behavior, mindset, consistency, and the ability of leaders to build genuine trust can greatly influence the culture within a company. Leaders also have the most impact and play a pivotal role in ensuring cultural cohesion and aligning the company's vision, mission, and values.

  2. The importance of HR in leadership: Human Resources (HR) plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between business and culture, helping to align the talent strategy with the business strategy. HR can be a strategic partner in mergers and acquisitions, ensuring the compatibility of cultures and facilitating the smooth integration of teams.

  3. The role of leaders in talent development: Leaders are responsible for harnessing and developing the potential within their teams. This includes identifying top performers and replicating their success throughout the organization. It is important to ensure that employees see a clear career path within the organization to boost retention and engagement.


Mergers and Acquisition Big Idea:

The A Player Success Blueprint: It is designed to help organizations navigate through growth and business expansion, particularly during mergers and acquisitions. The blueprint encourages organizations to identify their top performers – the right talent – and to quantify what makes them so effective.

This information can then be used to attract and build similar talent, aligning with the company's unique growth journey. The aim is to create a culture that underpins the growth strategy, allowing for more sustainable and efficient business expansion. This method help prevent culture clashes that often occur during mergers and acquisitions.


Favorite Quotes:

 “Business leaders are finally recognizing not only that they cannot achieve their growth strategy without people, but that culture is not a squishy HR term. The culture truly is foundational.” – Clair Chandler

“HR has an unprecedented opportunity right now to shift the conversation and to get everybody aligned. We need to have a talent strategy that moves the needle, because without the talent strategy being in alignment, your business strategy, however brilliant or aspirational it might be, is doomed to fail.” – Claire Chandler

“One of the best ways to meld the best of both cultures is to say give me your short list of who would you consider, within your entity and your entity, your top performers, not just the ones who get great results, but the ones who behave in the ways that we want right, the ones that you constantly catch yourself saying if only I could clone this person with that team.” – Claire Chandler
