The Dreams & Details Leadership Model
The Dreams and Details Leadership Model provides the leadership tools and the strategic mindset that leaders and organizations need to thrive in a fast-changing world! Use it to your advantage to maximize your organizational and employee performance today and in the future. The leadership model enables you to unleash potential and continuously reinvent your organization from a position of strength to spearhead change and innovation.
How Does It Work?
Essential to the Dreams and Details leadership model is the importance of inspiring people to drive performance and development. This is needed to (continuously) reinvent your organization based on an ambitious vision (the dream) that aims at opportunities in the future, setting you up to co-create the future of business. It also involves focusing on and developing the most critical capabilities (the crucial details) that enable the dream (the desirable future of your organization) to come true. And it includes setting the right mindset and framework to unleash human potential and accelerate the organization’s transformation.
Maximize Employee and Business Performance
The Dreams and Details leadership model is based on the realization that human potential and business performance can be developed exponentially if the right conditions are met. The model includes 3 key elements:
- The Dream – Inspiring people to be part of something that is meaningful and ambitious.
- The Details – Enabling people to beat their best in areas that are critical to achieve the dream.
- The Platform for change – Empowering People based on a common Mindset and clear Framework.
The Dream is what we want to achieve. It is derived from the overall purpose and long-term strategy of the organization; It defines a relevant direction for the company, but not the plan on how to get there. The dream has to be ambitious enough to inspire the necessary changes and must be so inspiring that it motivates and engages your employees by giving them meaning. The Dream includes direction, ambition and inspiration.
The Details define which areas we need to transform and master to achieve the dream (on organizational level and individual employee level). In other words, the Details define which areas need the most substantial change. It is important to emphasize that we are not suggesting focusing on all details, but the few crucial details that need the most radical change to develop the needed capabilities and performance of the organization to achieve the dream. The details include the roles, skills and collaboration.
The Platform for change includes first of all a common Mindset for the organization. The mindset is derived from the dream and defines what people should have in mind, when they make decisions. As such, the mindset enables people in the organization to make the right decisions in line with the strategic priorities. The Platform also includes a common Framework for the organization. The framework defines the boundary conditions, structures and rules within which the organization works. The framework allows people to act according to the “rules of the game”.
The Platform promotes decentral decision-making based on the shared mindset (common priorities for decisions) and decentral action based on the framework for action. It empowers employees to unleash their potential and become more autonomous decision-makers and solution finders.
A Comprehensive Model for Leadership and Business Strategy
All in all, the Dreams and Details leadership model enables leaders to maximize the potential of their individual employees as well as of the organization as a whole around a common vision (the dream). This will allow your organization to thrive in disruptive business environments. The leadership model sharpens your business’s ability to identify change early and to adapt, or even to be the change itself. Thereby, it helps you to build a more resilient, adaptable, agile, and innovative organization.
