I recently worked with a team in Fort Collins, Colorado helping them build alignment and cohesion.
The CEO was a technologist. The Sales VP wanted to see a more sales-driven organization. The Engineering VP needed more engineers to meet the demands of a singificant customer contract. The CFO wanted to instill process and financial discipline. The HR VP was mostly focused on administration.
Each person came to the team with his/her own agenda and vision.
The team was a mess.
