“We need our executives to get aligned.”
Maybe you’ve seen one of my articles or heard one of my talks or interviews about executive alignment. Executive alignment is a funny thing: it’s absolutely critical to a well-functioning organization, it usually doesn’t exist, and it’s a problem no one thinks they have.
If you’re looking for a way to get through circular conversations, political undercurrents, shifting goals, and pointless arguments, give me a call. I’ve traced the cause of uninspiring products and services all the way back to the C-Suite (or high-level stakeholders), where I always find a game of telephone cleverly disguised as clear communication.
The trick is to completely change the conversation. Together, we will refocus on your users and customers to establish a new common language. My Executive Alignment workshop isn’t touchy-feely, kumbaya bullshit. It’s a structured process rooted in measurable business results. Extra bonus: it will magically transform how you communicate with everyone in your organization and there’s a direct line from executive alignment to product excellence.
The result of working with Tamara Adlin is an exec and product team focused on the key customers and empowered to move your business forward. Tamara delivers on her promise to take the dissonance out of product development. And she has an incredible ability to coach executives and product people to consensus.
Tamara is fantastic. Healthcare is complex with a myriad of different audiences with wildly different needs. Tamara did an amazing job of helping our large group of business owners work together to identify our users’ needs and then prioritize them. Her expertise and humor were much appreciated by all involved.
Tamara is a force of nature bent on creating consensus out of chaos. She stepped in to help wrangle stakeholders and align interests at the beginning of a recent project, and in the process helped provide a foundation that has let us lean in and get right to work. She was flexible, affable, and always goal oriented. Her ability to adapt to personalities and politics is second only, perhaps, to her ability to keep a room engaged and an activity energetic. I will definitely look for opportunities to work with her in the future.
Tamara is a “go to” for transforming product organizations. She has been at the forefront of persona based product development before it was “even a thing.” Theory is hard to translate into practice. Tamara works with teams to reset their relationship with the customer and use that to produce better products. She’s smart, funny and a delight to work with. Above all, she achieves results. Highly recommended!
