5 Pillars Of Leader Priorities

The Prioritized Leader Framework is the process of assessing individual leaders to learn their internal priorities versus that of the organizational priorities and the priorities of other leaders within the organization. How aligned are all leaders in their mission, vision, values, and strategy? How much does it matter? 

The 5 Pillars of Leader Priorities

The Prioritized Leader is a long-lasting solution that is based on the following five priorities or pillars that leaders use knowingly or not that influence, initiate, and lead within a culture.

Delivery: The Prioritized Leader Framework is delivered in individual elearning modules to review each of the 5 Priorities concepts. Once complete, leaders commit to meet, collaborate, and learn from each other the 5 Priorities as they relate to their scope of work, the organization’s goals and strategy, and each other. The intent of this process is to align all leaders in all five priorities where necessary!

Outcome: This creates awareness of self and awareness of organization within the construct of the 5 pillars. As leaders align and progress, they will learn how to…
