The Winning Formula

six areas of focus on the journey

Navigating the landscape is a specialist skill for any leader to master.

The Winning Formula® performance framework focuses on six key areas of strategic and operational importance critical to the success of any organisation on their unique journey.

1. Research

Inspiring individuals to sign-up and support the organisation on its journey is important to building a high-performing business. Research focuses on the size of the opportunity for everyone connected with the organisation.

2. Strategy

Being part of a unique proposition on a great growth journey is important to building a high-performing business. Strategy focuses on the production of the route map needed to chart the right course on the journey.

3. Engagement

Maintaining support throughout the time period of the organisation’s journey is important to building a high-performing business. Engagement focuses on obtaining the buy-in and commitment to the strategic plan and the route map on the journey.

4. Motivation

The working environment is important to building a high-performing business. Motivation focuses on the creation of the performance climate needed throughout the organisation to enable others to perform to their potential.

5. Development

High-performing behaviour is important to building a high-performing business. Development focuses on the protection of the systems, processes and people important to a sustainable organisation.

6. Ownership

Confidence is important to building a high-performing business. Ownership focuses on the maximisation of people potential throughout every area of the organisation.

The Winning Formula® can be used in a linear step-by-step way when there is an identified need to begin a new and exciting journey – perhaps on the back of a newly appointed leader or a decision to change the direction of the organisation.

Alternatively, the framework can be used by leaders tactically when there is a need to review and develop key aspects of the organisation’s performance on their existing journey. The six areas highlighted can be developed as separate one-off areas of leadership and operational focus.

Regardless of whether a linear or tactical approach is used, the performance framework offers confidence, purpose and focus to leaders and their teams on the journey.

The Winning Formula® is a simple and powerful approach to navigating the landscape and to creating an agile, successful and sustainable organisation.
