Strategic Focusing

Integrate business and personal priorities, sharpen leadership skills and develop capacity to execute strategy with passion and fierce resolve.

Focus on the few things that will have the greatest impact.

An Oxford Leadership proprietary methodology for focusing leadership teams and entire organisations on the few things that make the greatest difference.

We have implemented Strategic Focusing in some of the world’s largest corporations to focus and empower people, create fierce resolve and align organisational capabilities in the execution of strategy. See through complexity to key things you must do to succeed – then co-create a “plan to win” that everyone understands, and is passionate about achieving.

Create alignment, engagement, and mutual accountability among all team members.
