2. The Work of Leaders Coaching Process

Recognizing that leadership is one of the most studied areas of business, as well as one of the most requested topics for training, The Work of Leaders research and model applies the science of contemporary leadership to organizational success. The goal of The Work of Leaders is to make this wealth of leadership insight accessible to anyone who wants better results as a leader. Leadership Strategies International will help you craft a vision, build alignment, and champion execution through our services and products. You can choose to develop your leadership through one, some, or all of these services and products: The Work of Leaders book, a robust assessment tool, a 360 degree-feedback tool, and executive coaching services.

The Work of Leaders Model: Vision, Alignment, Execution (VAE)

The work that leaders do—the work that really matters—is boiled down to three areas: crafting a vision, building alignment, and championing execution. Vision, Alignment, and Execution (VAE) are “magic words.” They strike a chord that turns the goal of leadership into tangible steps.

With passion and insight, the authors of The Work of Leaders researched the best-known leadership authorities, while leveraging their unparalleled access to data from thousands of leaders and followers and their connections to hundreds of organizational development consultants. Interwoven with humor and drawing from real-world scenarios, The Work of Leaders distills leadership best practices into a simple, compelling process that helps leaders at all levels get immediate results.

Learn More About the VAE Model

In our view, leaders have three fundamental responsibilities: They craft a vision, they build alignment, and they champion execution.

  • Crafting a Vision: imagining an improved future state that the group will make a reality through its work
  • Building Alignment: getting to the point where everyone in the group understands and is committed to the vision
  • Championing Execution: ensuring that the conditions are present for the imagined future to be turned into a reality

Of course, there’s a lot of skill that goes into each of these responsibilities. That is, in fact, what The Work of Leaders is all about. The model is broken down into three key things effective leaders do at each step, and describes specific behaviors for each.

The VAE Model

The true value of this model is that it lays out a manageable, realistic framework to guide the process. The goal is to provide straightforward explanations of where you might choose to target your personal development efforts.

To get a sense of what The Work of Leaders has to offer, we invite you to review the sample assessment report, and read some excerpts from the book.
